If there is one skin care injectable that has done the world a lot of good, it is BOTOX® Cosmetic. Not only does the quick and simple treatment allow women and men of all ages to look rested, younger and more attractive, but the injections have been used to treat a variety of medical issues.
BOTOX® has maintained its title as the number one cosmetic injectable in the United States since receiving FDA approval in 2002. It is still so popular for temporarily arresting wrinkles, and the numbers don’t lie: There were approximately 7.2 million BOTOX® sessions recorded in 2017. That figure represented a two-percent increase from the year prior.
BOTOX® shots are excellent at preventing muscles from contracting into wrinkles. Treatments are affordable and a wise investment because every BOTOX® session is a preventative measure against the development of new wrinkles. In addition, the ones being treated by these injections often look less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking.
BOTOX® represents modern beauty and the quick fix. People don’t have a lot of hours to spare for downtime and a long recuperation. The injectable can be administered by a skilled provider during your lunch hour, for example, and you can go back to work after. You might feel a little numbness or see minor swelling and redness, but these disappear in an hour or two. You can even wear your usual makeup the next day.
When some think of BOTOX®, they imagine that the cosmetic treatment is only for people over 40, but that is a myth. Skin care experts recommend that if young adults as early as their mid-twenties notice lines and wrinkles forming on their face, they should be proactive and make an appointment for a session. Millennials make up a large percentage of new clients today, and many of them view BOTOX® as just another aspect of good grooming.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is brilliant at relaxing forehead or frown lines, and some clients rave about the way it can make their crow’s feet disappear and give eyes a rested youthful, wide awake appearance. A skilled professional can add injections to give the look of a subtle brow lift and lift to the corners of the mouth. The shots can also soften chords in the neck and add a slimming effect to enlarged jaw muscles. Treatments can even soften the dimpling of the chin, also known as cobblestone.
This injection treatment has been around for more than 15 years now and is considered a safe beauty treatment when administered by a skin care expert. The injectable is recognized for being one of the most effective beauty products to change the way the world looks at getting older.
