Over the past decade, Botox has become increasingly more commonplace. Facial wrinkles like frown lines, crow’s feet or smile lines are all common concerns often treated with Botox. Botox is actually a toxin that when injected into the muscle causes a temporary reduction in movement. Though Botox is a toxin, its use is very safe and has been approved by the FDA. Botox is quick, effective and very safe. It’s no surprise that Botox is as popular as it is. There really isn’t a substitute available on the market. The areas of the body treated are very common concerns for patients who are getting older and most likely the signs that you’ll see first. Treatments are performed in a brief office visit and though might seem casual in nature should always be given by a licensed plastic surgeon.
