Why is Botox so Popular?

BotoxIt seems like the Botox Cosmetic procedure is everywhere–in conversations with your girlfriends to story lines in movies and television shows and on the faces of many celebrities in the tabloids and beauty magazines– but maybe you still aren’t sure why it has become so popular. Since our society has a longer life expectancy than previous generations, it has become a known fact that people want to look younger than they really are for as long as they can. There are a vast amount of skin care products and skin treatments available today, and Botox is probably the most common non-surgical, cosmetic procedure in the United States. It has also risen in popularity in recent years due to its non-cosmetic related benefits as well.

What is Botox?

  • When this neurotoxic protein called botulinum toxin is injected directly into a muscle by a physician, Botox averts muscles from tightening by temporarily immobilizing them, which makes wrinkles less obvious.
  • This beauty enhancement procedure has been around for more than 15 years and has been widely studied by professionals. It has been proven to effectively prevent, reduce and even remove fine lines and wrinkles safely.
  • It’s fast, less expensive, the recovery time lasts just a few minutes and results are seen within 7 to 14 days after treatment.
  • It does not require surgery or anesthesia. You won’t feel any major pain from the tiny injections your skin care expert administers.
