Orlando Cosmetic Surgery can not help but note that 2014 marks a banner year for the rise in popularity of Botox injections.
There were 6,673,608 Botox treatments in 2014. That is a 6% increase in usage over 2013. Likewise, this number indicates far more usage than in the year 2000, when only 786911 procedures were performed.
For those of you who love statistics, that means that 748 percent more people have taken Botox treatments last year than in the year 2000.
(Yes, that is seven hundred and forty-eight percent!)
What has caused this meteoric rise to fame? Orlando Cosmetic Surgery believes one of the reasons is that Botox produces beautiful results.
Just for You – A Little Botox Review
Below we will share a few outstanding basic facts about Botox. Some of you might have already heard this information. However, people who are newly investigating the idea of getting the injections might be frightened by the common knowledge that Botox comes from a bacteria.
1. It is true that “Botulinum toxin is a purified substance that’s derived from bacteria. Commonly known types of botulinum toxin type A injections include Botox and Dysport. Injections of botulinum toxin blocks muscular nerve signals, which then weakens the muscle so it can’t contract.” Thus, the unwanted facial wrinkles fade remarkably or disappear!
Dr. Jaffer Khan of Dubai, states, “Don’t be put off by the word toxin! BOTOX interferes with transmission of the nerve impulse to muscles and hence stops the muscle working for a period of time.”
Yes, it is true that Botox is made from “the same toxin that causes a life-threatening type of food poisoning called botulism.
It comes with a boxed warning that says the effects of the toxin may spread from the injection site to other areas of the body. But there has never been a confirmed serious case of toxin spread,” when Botox is used as approved, according to the FDA.
2. Did you know that you have a great many facial muscles? When they retract, you see facial wrinkling. With education and experience, as well as artistic skill, the cosmetic surgeon delivers
the correct dose into the correct muscle.
Dr. Kahn adds, “A plastic surgeon’s knowledge of the anatomy of these muscles will allow for safe placement of the toxin.”
3. Not all wrinkles can be corrected by Botox, but it is extremely effective for furrows that etch horizontally across the forehead as well as those pesky vertical lines in between your beautiful eyebrows.
Frown lines, also can benefit from such injections, as well as those skin bands on the neck.
In 2013, the FDA authorized plastic surgeons to use Botox in the treatment of crow’s-feet, those lines at the outer corners of your eyes, which have
a funny name, but are not funny at all.
With age, sun, and time, these lines can give you an older, squinty eyed, even sleepy, appearance.
So if you thought Botox was just for foreheads, think again! Such mainstream periodicals as the 2013 USA Today, in addition to the medical journals announced,
“The anti-wrinkle drug Botox has a new official use: The Food and Drug Administration says it’s an effective temporary treatment for crow’s-feet, the wrinkles that form next to aging eyes.”
4. We want you to understand that Botox parties and shopping center spas do not generally have the personnel training and technique to properly inject the Botox.
This is why Orlando Cosmetic Surgery believes you must trust your face only to a board certified cosmetic surgeon and his team. This holds true for procedures as well as traditional surgery. Botox has been used commercially in the United States for over a decade now. In the hands of a capable professional, Botox could provide that youthful glow you need for a stylish new Spring look: Smoothly Refreshed, Up-lifted, and Confident.
