A common procedure that targets signs of getting older is the injectable medicine Botox. Botox is utilized to treat signs of getting older aging such as wrinkles. The toxin found in Botox causes a short-term reduction of movement of the muscle it is injected into. The FDA has determined that it is safe for use in patients that aren’t allergic to the ingredients. Botox is quick, effective and very safe. It is no surprise that Botox is as popular as it is. There really is no substitute available on the market. It is virtually impossible to avoid wrinkles as you age, but Botox provides a quick and effective way to minimize these wrinkles and “turn back the clock” on your appearance. Treatments are done during a brief office visit and though might seem casual in nature should always be given by a licensed plastic surgeon.
