Why Botox Treatment Is Here To Stay
We would be surprised to find anyone that hasn’t heard of Botox, and maybe even hard-pressed to find someone who hasn’t considered it. Botox treatment is simply one of the most popular ways to tackle those early signs of aging. What’s more, even as new technology and products hit the market, Botox remains a sought-after procedure. Let’s take a look at why so many people love Botox and why we think this treatment is here to stay.
History Of Botox
Botox is derived from botulinum toxin, which is produced by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Most people know the results of wild-type infection as Botulism. In the 1920s scientists began to isolate the toxin, but it wasn’t until the 1970s that it began to be used medicinally. Early testing included the treatment of strabismus (crossed-eyes) in monkeys. Coincidentally, researchers noticed that it also reduced the appearance of wrinkles in the monkies. By 1989, it had received FDA approval for strabismus. Practitioners began using it cosmetically use for facial wrinkles in 2002.
Benefits of Botox Treatments
Since 2002, scientists have discovered numerous benefits of Botox to combat the signs of aging. Primarily, Botox treatment addresses fine lines around the eyes, between the eyebrows, and along the forehead. Botox works by interrupting the nerve signals to your muscles. As a result, it smoothes away fine lines and wrinkles. Typically the visible benefits last several months. As one of the oldest nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, Botox boasts an excellent safety and efficacy profile. Plus, it offers fast results in just a quick office visit.
