There are very few people on the planet who have not heard of BOTOX®. This injectable grows in popularity every single day. It has been used by millions of individuals for more than a decade as a way to address the fine lines and wrinkles that are created by muscles that move under the skin when a person smiles, frowns or has any other facial movements.
BOTOX® has been listed as one of the top five cosmetic procedures. Yet, it is one of the procedures that people know the least about. A lot of what people know about this treatment is what they see when they watch television gossip shows that make claims that certain celebrities look the way they do because they have had extensive BOTOX® procedures. In fact, a lot of these celebrities look the way they do not because of BOTOX®, but because they had a brow lift or a facelift that was done by an overzealous cosmetic surgeon.
When this treatment is properly applied, it will smooth out the dynamic wrinkles on your face, but at the same time it’ll let you express emotion. When properly applied, BOTOX® does not leave you with that deer caught in the headlights look. It has been producing positive results for individuals between the ages of 18 and 65 who want to temporarily remove frown lines and crow’s feet, as well as the lines that appear on the side of your mouth when you smile.
Just a few years ago, the majority of BOTOX® patients were women. However, these days, more and more men are turning to this injectable as a way to rejuvenate their face and give themselves the youthful appearance they need to stay relevant in the business world. Men who have used BOTOX® make comments like, “A lot of the people on my team are younger than me, and I don’t want to look like I’m too old to have fresh and creative ideas.” According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in 2006 alone, more than 3,000 men got BOTOX® treatments for aesthetic reasons.
BOTOX® affects the signals that are transmitted from the nerves to the muscles in a person’s face. It relaxes these muscles and prevents or minimizes their movement. As a result, the dynamic wrinkles that are usually caused by expressions disappear.
The power of this treatment can be seen in how much it is discussed in the media. In 2015, BOTOX® was the most talked about medication on the planet. More people talked about this injectable in the media than they talked about VIAGRA®.
BOTOX® is an effective, non-surgical way to address the normal signs of aging. It is relatively comfortable, it requires no downtime, its results are long-lasting and you will be able to see results in just a few days after having the procedure performed. BOTOX® is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the world for a reason. It’s because it works.
