Are you tired of looking tired? Frowning about your frown lines? Sad because of sagging cheeks? If so, Botox may be for you. Even just a little bit of this revolutionary formula can take years off of your skin, and advances in medical technology have made Botox more effective than ever. Here are a few answers to some of our most commonly asked questions about this cosmetic “Fountain of Youth”.
What is Botox?
A lot of people think they know what Botox is, but we are here to get the facts straight. First, Botox is not a dermal filler like collagen injections or Juvederm. Instead, it is a muscle and wrinkle relaxer that blocks the nerve impulses in the face that cause activity and create dynamic lines. Before you panic, however, it is important to point out that Botox does not completely freeze the face. It simply slows down the movement of the face to prevent deep lines from setting in. This benefit makes it one of the most effective treatments on the market for preventing wrinkles.
What Are the Most Popular Places for Injections?
Botox can be used for multiple purposes, but it is most commonly used to treat the frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet around the corners of the eyes, and forehead creases. Since these lines begin developing early in the aging process (some women get forehead wrinkles as early as 20!), Botox is a popular method for combating the look of premature aging.
What Age Should We Really Start?
While some people believe that Botox should only be used later in life, many experts recommend using this treatment as a preventative measure. In fact, Botox may be most effective when used to prevent lines and wrinkles. Starting treatments early – even as young as the 20s – can help people are avoid lines and creases in the first place.
Can Men Use it Too?
Have you heard of “Brotox”? The name may be silly, but it is becoming seriously popular. According to the journal Cosmetic Dermatology, the number of American men who get Botox injects has risen 258 percent over the last decade!Out of a total of 3,828,526 Botox procedures performed in the U.S. in 2015, 10.3 percent of those were performed on men. This percentage is expected to increase as more and more prominent male figures open up about their anti-aging “secret”.
