Botox Treatment: 50 Is The New 20

Posted on Posted in Neurotoxins

Botox is one of the most common cosmetic procedures requested by clients throughout the world.

It is the most effective way to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles that come with aging. It’s a Secret Med Spa in uptown Dallas is one of the best place to offer this popular wrinkle treatment in the DFW area.

 

How Does Botox Work?

Botox, short for botulinum toxin, has been used in medical procedures since the 1920s. It did not rise in popularity until 2002 when the United States Food and Drug Administration approved it for the use in cosmetic procedures. Botox Injection is not to be confused with dermal fillers. Dermal filler injection is primary used for adding volume to skin through promoting collagen production. Botox injections are administered directly into the facial muscles. Doing so, the muscles near the injection site relax, and hence fine lines and wrinkles disappear.

 

What Are Common Treatment Areas?

While Botox is traditionally used to treat fine lines and wrinkles that have already formed, doctors and med spas are now using it as a preventative measure. This is based on the assumption that through relaxing the facial muscles you can essentially keep wrinkles from forming in the first place. Botox injection is most commonly used to treat frown lines, wrinkles on the forehead, crow’s feet, and creases in the neck region. It is a temporary solution and results can last anywhere from three to six months before another treatment is needed.
