A Wrinkle-free Face through Botox

Recession or no recession, it seems that millions of American men and women are focused on and devoted to the same positive concern – looking and feeling their best all the time. Records from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) clearly show this, through the steady rise in the number of cosmetic procedures internists and cosmetic surgeons perform annually.

Since 2010, the number of procedures performed has only continued to go further up 10 million, with Botulinum toxin type A (or simply Botox), being the number one minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure for the last 13 years (since the year 2000). In 2010, Botox procedures were recorded at 2,437,165; in 2012, the number jumped up to 4,125,179.

So much for the numbers, but what really makes Americans go nuts over Botox treatment? Well, basically, it’s the youthful skin that gives them a fresher and younger look which, in turn, make them feel good and more confident.

The use of injectable botulinum toxin type A or Botox was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on April 12, 2002, to treat: crow’s feet or squint lines, which develop at the corner of the eyes; wrinkles on the forehead; platysmal muscle bands on the neck; and, the lines on the eyebrows. The solution, which can decrease muscle contraction or muscle activity, is injected into the targeted parts and where muscle activity is absent, it would mean greatly reduced chances of developing lines and/or wrinkles.

Botox comes from a poisonous bacterium called clostridium botulinum. This deadly bacterium is the known cause of botulism, a deadly type of infirmity. Though poisonous, physicians found a medical use for it, one of which is the now very famous Botox treatment.

The lines that Botox can treat are said to be limited, though, for it has no effect on nasolabial folds (also called smile/laugh lines), the creases of skin running from the corners of the nose down to the sides of the mouth. Another treatment that makes use of a different substance, Juvéderm, a gel-like dermal filler, particularly, takes care of these folds. And cosmetic/aesthetic surgeons believe that when Juvéderm treatment is combined with Botox, then the results can only be remarkably stunning.

Before a Botox procedure is performed, a patient or client should be made to understand what he/she can expect during and after the treatment. This is necessary as implied in an article posted in the website of Bergman Folkers Plastic Surgery; it will also pave the way for ultimate beautiful results that can even exceed client’s expectations.
