What Makes Botox Successful?

May 9, 2016 | Blog, Botox, Skin Care

BotoxIt happens to all of us – wrinkles appear and deepen over time, resulting in a less youthful and refreshed appearance. There are many anti-aging treatments and products currently in the market, but Botox is still the most popular among Americans. Find out what makes Botox successful and how it can help renew and improve your appearance.

It’s Safe

With Botox, you’re not trying a new, unproven procedure. It has a long track record of safety and success, having been approved by the Food and Drug Administration since 2002. With over 5 million injections each year, it’s the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure in the United States. Even minor side effects occur in less than 1 percent of cases, according to a recent study in the Journal of the American Medical Association Dermatology. You’ll have an extra layer of confidence in knowing that we use only authentic product that is injected only by physicians. Our doctors have over 15 years of combined experience with this procedure.

It’s Effective

The FDA has approved the use of Botox to treat frown lines and crow’s feet. It works by blocking some of the signals that make your facial muscles contract. This makes wrinkles relax and soften, resulting in a more youthful, refreshed appearance in which superficial lines are almost gone and deeper wrinkles are greatly reduced.

Quick, Long-lasting Results

Unlike more invasive procedures, Botox can be administered on your lunch hour, with no downtime necessary afterward. No anesthesia is required, and the sensation is often compared to a bug bite. No preparation is necessary, except it’s recommended that you avoid alcohol for a week before your injections and stop taking aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs for two weeks in advance. Afterward, you can resume your normal activities immediately, although very strenuous workouts need to be delayed until the next day.
