Thanks to its excellent safety, ease of application and great results, BOTOX® has become one of the most common, FDA-approved cosmetic procedures. Popular for treating facial wrinkles, it is, without doubt, a popular procedure. But alongside getting rid of those annoying frown lines, this cosmetic procedure can also be used to treat various other conditions.
As a laboratory created cosmetic, the product is quite safe when administered in recommended proportions. Because of its muscle-relaxing properties, BOTOX® was originally meant for treating spasms, specifically overactive eye spasms. Later, it was discovered that it could minimize superficial muscles because of its ability to relax the face.
While this has become BOTOX®’s most popular application, research has also found out that the procedure is very effective at treating other issues, depending on the situation. This is specifically beneficial for both doctors and patients because the procedure, unlike most medications, comes with virtually no side effects.
BOTOX® can be used to minimize dynamic wrinkles, but it doesn’t treat just one type. It can be used on crow’s feet, frown lines, and other expressive lines and wrinkles throughout the face. In fact, it can even be used on the neck in order to smooth out the skin there by relaxing the underlying muscles.
BOTOX® reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles for several months at a time before repeat treatments at our office are necessary.
Studies indicate that BOTOX® can provide results for men just as well as it does for women. Although it was more commonly used by women in the past, more and more men are turning to this popular injectable treatment for natural-looking, convenient enhancements.
Most people associate BOTOX® with cosmetic enhancement such as removal of facial wrinkles and other age-related signs. But alongside its ability to rejuvenate an aging appearance, it can also make a person look and feel amazing, which provides results that simply cannot be measured.
