Why Botox Treatment Is So Popular
Botox is one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic treatments, with an estimated 11 million people receiving it worldwide. And, it’s easy to see why Botox treatment is so popular. It tackles the early signs of aging quickly and effectively, restoring a more youthful appearance. This versatile treatment is truly one of the best ways to combat aging skin, and we think it will remain popular for many, many years to come.
History Of Botox Use
Derived from botulinum toxin, doctors began using Botox for medical applications in the 1970s. It became FDA approved as a treatment for strabismus (crossed eyes) in 1989, and it was during this time that the other significant benefit of Botox became apparent: that wrinkles around the eyebrows seemed to disappear. Botox for cosmetic use was FDA approved in 2002, making it one of the most tried and true anti-aging treatments available.
Botox Treatment Benefits
Because Botox works by disrupting the nerve signals to the muscles, it effectively smooths away fine lines and wrinkles as the result of repetitive facial movements (like smiling, squinting, and frowning). Primarily, we use this type of treatment around the eyes (crow’s feet), between the eyebrows (the 11s), and on forehead lines. With visible results shortly after just one 15-20 minute session, it’s no surprise that this treatment has such popularity. Plus, there’s no downtime and results last 3-4 months! This minimally invasive procedure boasts an excellent safety profile and incredible results – what’s not to love?
