Home/Blog / Who is a Good Candidate for BOTOX® Injections?


BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of our most popular injectables for the treatment of dynamic facial wrinkles. With the ability to target fine lines and wrinkles across the forehead, between the eyebrows, and at the corners of the eyes, the neurotoxin formula can temporarily weaken overactive facial muscles for a more relaxed, rested, and youthful appearance. If you have one or more of these types of facial wrinkles, you may be a good candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic. Additionally, ideal candidates for this injectable are 18 years of age or older, in good overall health, are not pregnant or nursing, and have realistic expectations in regard to the results of the procedure.

Though uncommon, some patients may experience an allergic reaction at the injection site. Patients who believe they may have particularly sensitive skin should opt for an allergy test before undergoing treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic. During the consultation process, Dr. Jodie Reinertson will discuss your unique cosmetic goals, determine the cause of your facial wrinkles, and help you decide if BOTOX® Cosmetic can meet your needs. In some cases, Dr. Reinertson may recommend combining BOTOX® Cosmetic with a dermal filler such as JUVÉDERM®, depending upon the patient’s facial rejuvenation goals.
