What Is Botox And Can It Really Get Rid Of Wrinkles?

Submitted by: Jennifer R. Simpson

So, what exactly is Botox? Botox is a commercial name for Botulinum toxin injections and has become a popular method for getting rid of wrinkles and fine lines. It has become the secret weapon of many aging baby boomers in their quest to avoid an aging appearance. Botox treatments, which were once a rarity, have become mainstream in today’s society and are extremely common.

So just how popular are Botox treatments? In a word, very.

Botulinum toxin injections are currently the fastest growing cosmetic enhancement procedure. Yes, Botox has the distinct honor of being more popular than nose jobs (rhinoplasty), breast enhancement surgery, and liposuction! As you can see, this trend has really caught on and is here to stay.


Are there any dangers to having a Botox treatment done?

Assuming the procedure is done by a competent professional, a Botox treatment is unlikely to have any serious or long-lasting side effects. Muscle paralysis (dropping eyelid, uneven smile, etc.) and bruising are the most common complaints, and both will wear off after a few of weeks. A quick word of warning… if you’re considering having Botox done, be sure to thoroughly research the professionals in your area who are offering this service!

In today’s day and age, where youth and beauty is valued above all else, it’s no surprise to see the exploding popularity of Botox treatments. People everywhere want to stay young and preserve their appearance, and they aren’t afraid to pay for it either.

If you’re thinking about having Botox done, or any other cosmetic enhancement procedure for that matter, I would advise you to really do your research and even talk to others who have already had the treatment done. Taking the time to do your due diligence will help you make better decisions and avoid a cosmetic procedure trainwreck (one Michael Jackson is enough, thank you).
