Does Botox Have Longer Lasting Anti-Aging Effects Than We Thought?

Botox Injections

Botox injections are a cosmetic form of treatment that has come to be associated with lip plumping, breast augmentation and wrinkle reduction procedures. However, it has recently come to light that this substance may in fact be able to affect the overall structure of the skin in a positive – and even anti-aging – way as well.

Botox Treatments

Since it received the stamp of approval from the FDA two decades ago, popularity levels of Botox injections and treatments have soared tremendously, with more than 6 million treatments being performed in the United States each year alone.

Unlike many other forms of cosmetic surgery, Botox injections are classified as being non-invasive, which means that they are normally also virtually pain-free. Patients also experience minimal discomfort these injections because of the fact that extremely thin needles are used to administer them. Treatment times are normally also short in that they last no longer than 15 to 20 minutes and patients are normally able to resume their regular daily routines almost immediately afterwards as well.
