Botox™ is one of the most popular anti-aging procedures in the United States today. It is a highly effective and swift procedure to correct aging signs such as facial lines and wrinkles. Botox™ is administered to a patient by means of an injection and specifically it can correct aging signs like forehead frown lines and lines between the eyes and at the base of the nose.
Botox™ achieves its famed anti-aging results by temporarily eliminating facial aging signs through the relaxation of the underlying muscles that cause those aging signs. Botox™ basically consists of the Botulinum toxin in a much diluted form and it has been proven to be safe for anti-aging treatment. In fact, Botox™ is an FDA approved product for the treatment of eye muscle disorders and eliminating frown lines. The results achieved from a Botox™ injection typically lasts for about four months. Therefore, if a patient is to maintain the achieved anti-aging results, the procedure should be undergone twice a year.
Ideal candidates for this immensely popular and effective anti-aging treatment are people who have a desire to see an enhancement in their aging signs without undergoing invasive and painful surgery. In other words, Botox™ is an ideal anti-aging treatment for patients who dislike the idea of undergoing cosmetic surgery and its related long downtime. However, Botox™ is not a treatment that should be undergone by women who are pregnant as physicians are still unaware of the effects that this treatment will have on a fetus. Moreover, people who suffer from neurological disorders should refrain from undergoing Botox™ treatments as well.
