Botox is an extremely common treatment that combats the signs of aging. Facial wrinkles like frown lines, crow’s feet or smile lines are all common concerns often treated with Botox. The toxin found in Botox causes a short-term reduction of movement of the muscle it is injected into. The FDA has concluded that it is safe for use in patients that are not allergic to the ingredients. Botox is fast, effective and very safe. It’s no surprise that Botox is as common as it is. There really isn’t a substitute available on the market. The areas of the body treated are very common concerns for aging patients and most likely the signs that you’ll see first. A brief visit to your plastic surgeon’s office is all it takes to have a Botox treatment completed.
