Millions of BOTOX® injections are administered every single year, and that makes it one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. This injectable has been around for decades, and it has helped countless patients deal with their unwanted blemishes. BOTOX® produces almost immediate results, and you will be able to enjoy your firm and youthful appearance for months as long as you continue to care for your skin. Here is a quick look at just a few of the reasons why so many patients continue to choose this treatment over other injectables.
The active ingredient inside BOTOX® is a purified protein solution. This solution was originally used to treat conditions that cause involuntary muscle contractions. When injected into the forehead, it can reduce the frequency and severity of certain types of migraines. It is also a popular treatment option for some of the side effects of nervous system disorders.
A few decades ago, doctors discovered that purified protein solution can be used to treat cosmetic imperfections as well. Dynamic wrinkles slowly begin to fade away after this solution is injected into the soft tissue just under the skin. That makes it the perfect injectable treatment for dynamic wrinkles throughout the face.
The Benefits of BOTOX®
Facelifts and other invasive procedures are highly effective, and millions of patients undergo those operations every year. Unfortunately, they are also very difficult to recover from. Surgical procedures aren’t for everyone, and not everyone needs them. BOTOX® can be used to treat many of the same imperfections that facelifts take care of, but the recovery is much easier. This treatment can also be used as a preventative measure against wrinkles in the future.
