Why Is Botox Treatment So Popular?
It’s pretty rare we come across someone who has never heard of Botox. Even if you’ve never had it, you probably know someone who has or you may have even been thinking about it yourself. There’s a good reason why Botox treatment is so popular, and why everyone seems to be talking about it. Simply put, Botox is fast and effective at reversing the signs of aging on your face.
How Does Botox Treatment Work?
Botox contains an active ingredient derived from botulinum toxin which temporarily disrupts the nerve signal to the muscle. It has been safely used in medical applications since the 1970s and was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2002. When injected into certain areas of the face, it relaxes the muscles around fine lines and wrinkles. As a result, these lines are smoothed away and reveal a more youthful appearance.
Because repeated facial movements (along with a reduction in collagen production with age) lead to facial lines, we most commonly use Botox around the eyes (crow’s feet), on forehead lines, and between the eyebrows (the 11s). However, it can be used in other areas with great results.
What Results Can I Expect?
People love Botox because the results are near-instantaneous with no downtime. You’ll see a noticeable difference right away, with full results in about two weeks. We use an ultra-fine needle for the injection, which produces only minimal discomfort. In just a quick, 15-minute office session, you can take years off your appearance. Plus, the results last 3-4 months!
