In the United States Botox is the most popular cosmetic injectable. Eliminating those annoying wrinkles has never been easier. Many do not know how Botox works.
Botox injections are a non-invasive non-surgical treatment, they are a quick and painless solution to reduce wrinkles, and their results are immediately visible. Contrary to plastic surgeries, Botox effects are somewhat long lasting as the effects of treatments last 3 to 4 months.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported 6.1 million Botox cosmetic procedures in 2018, which is 11% more than the previous year. Interestingly enough, even though young people are no strangers to Botox injections,Studies show usually most Botox users are around 40-59 years old. Also, the report states that 82% of patients have seen an immediate improvement.
Botox is very popular, but it is not exactly new. Physicians have been using Botulinum Toxin Type as a treatment for muscular spasms and excessive sweating for years. However, even though Botox is a toxin, it’s completely safe to use.
People often prefer Botox because it is faster and cheaper than plastic surgery. Botox results look more natural when applied judiciously by Dr. Atkins. Also, patients prefer non invasive treatments as recovery time is almost immediate, and plastic surgeries need a lengthy recovery period that can hardly be kept a secret.
