The cosmetic dermatology treatment is not inexpensive. So cost can be a factor. Along those lines, some patients will only have Botox treatments before big events: weddings, class reunions, holiday photos, etc. Making the cost only be a one time consideration. Other patients may elect to maintain a wrinkle free appearance by treating 2-3 times per year.
You should not get Botox if you are:
- Have an allergy to eggs (Botox comes packed in an egg (albumin) protein for stability), have a known allergy to Botox,
- Have certain neurological diseases (Talk to Dr. Crutchfield in your cosmetic dermatology interview about these if you have a concern about any personal health issues.)
