Why Botox Remains So Popular

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that Botox is one of the most popular non-surgical beauty procedures. In 2017, more than 7 million injections were performed.

But what makes Botox the go-to beauty treatment for so many people?

What makes this injectable so popular amongst a myriad of age groups?

Botox offers many benefits. Let’s take a look at some of them.

 

6 Reasons Botox Is Still Popular

1. Noticeable Results in Just a Few Days

With Botox, you will see your results anywhere between one to three days after your injections. So, within just 72 hours or so, you will be showered with compliments, feeling younger and fresher, and no doubt enjoying your smooth-faced confidence boost.

2. You Can Get Several Injections Each Year

We know that Botox’s popularity stems from the fact that it gives fantastic results, especially when it comes to crow’s feet and forehead lines. That’s an obvious benefit, but there are a few lesser-known advantages of this injectable.

For instance, Botox is popular because you can get multiple injections each year to maintain your smooth, wrinkle-free results. In fact, it is recommended that you get injections every four to six months if you want to maintain the results.

Since Botox is temporary, you can even test drive your first round of injections to determine whether or not it is a procedure you would like to keep up. It also gives you the chance to adjust your results, if necessary, to make sure you get the most out of your Botox injections.

3. You Don’t Have to Go Under the Knife

Botox is the number one nonsurgical beauty procedure. We all know that there is a level of risk that comes with surgery, which makes many people reconsider whether or not to proceed with procedures.

But this isn’t an issue at all with Botox. All it involves is a series of injections. There is absolutely no surgery. Best of all, you can still achieve exceptional results with this easy and fast alternative.

4. It Really Is Quick

We all have busy lives, and it can be daunting trying to fit in longer beauty procedures between work, the school run, and all your other obligations. Botox is a simple procedure that can be done within a few minutes. Yes, even during your lunch break!

In fact, the entire procedure probably takes quicker than it does to put on your makeup. And you can go straight back to work or errands.

5. Barely Any Side Effects

The only common side effect with Botox is bruising at the site of injection. However, the more skilled the practitioner, the less you’re likely to bruise. Some practitioners even apply a Vitamin K ointment after treatment to lessen the chances of bruising.

6. The ‘Frozen’ Look Is a Myth

As with any beauty procedure, each patient has their own look in mind. Not everyone wants to look frozen. Botox offers a natural and subtle change, but the procedure can be tailored to your desired needs and result.

      7.  Get rid of your Frown lines, Forehead and your Crow's Feet

             Botox injection into the areas are recommended to decrease the amount of expressionlines created as                   we speak normally.  About 10-15 units per area are injected.   

      8.  Eyebrow Lift

            Injection of Botulinum Toxin (Botox) is used to lift the eyebrows.   An experienced injector can fix an                    asymmetry in the face by injecting Botox into certain areas to get the desired results. 

      9.  Hyperhidrosis 

           Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. It is described as any abnormal sweating, such               as sweating when it’s not hot. People who sweat excessively often soak through their clothing.  Regular                 antiperspirants and other treatments don’t work well for those with this condition.  At NewSkin Laser we 

           use Botox to treat hyperhidrosis in the palms as well as underarm area.  

           Botox injections are a new treatment option for people with hyperhidrosis. You may be a candidate for                   Botox if your sweating fails to improve with prescription antiperspirants. Botox has been FDA-approved for             people who sweat excessively from their armpits. It may also be used “off-label” to reduce sweating in                 other areas, such as the hands, feet, and face.
