By now, odds are pretty good that you have heard of BOTOX®. This revolutionary treatment is changing the way we approach signs of aging and has practically become a household name. It is completely non-surgical yet produces dramatic results that can boost your self-esteem and make you look years younger.
The Story of BOTOX®
The active ingredient in BOTOX® has been used since the 1970s to treat crossed eyes. While doing further research, scientists discovered that it also helped to reduce wrinkles in the glabella (the skin above the nose and between the eyebrows.) In 2002, it received FDA approval to treat these wrinkles. BOTOX® received FDA approval to treat crow’s feet in 2013. In between, it received approval to treat a variety of other things.
How BOTOX® Injections Work
Many of the most frustrating facial wrinkles are the result of repetitive movement. Every time you squint, frown, laugh, etc., lines appear. As we get older and start producing less collagen, these lines tend to stick around a bit longer. BOTOX® injections work by temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for the movements. In the days that follow, the fine lines and wrinkles will fade as they are given a chance to relax. These injections are given precisely and do not impact the surrounding area.
Your results can last for a few months, depending on how your body reacts to it. On average, people need follow-up appointments every three to four months if they would like to maintain their results. If you decide that BOTOX® is not for you, simply do not receive a maintenance treatment and muscle movements will resume.
This is an appropriate treatment for both men and women who would like to look younger, friendlier, and more refreshed. It can be taken advantage of by people in their 20s, 30s and beyond. Many factors go into when wrinkles appear on your face. Do not put off doing something if you are bothered by them!
