To Tox or Not To Tox: What You Should Know About BOTOX

You may already know the benefits of BOTOX and have experienced the game-changing results.  Or perhaps you’ve been considering trying BOTOX so you can look like you, but with fewer lines. National BOTOX Day is almost here, so let’s talk ‘tox!

The potent natural substance onabotulinumtoxinA was approved by the FDA for therapeutic use in 1989. Allergan rebranded it as BOTOX and dove into clinical trials to determine its safety and efficacy in combating moderate to severe frown lines. By 2002, the FDA approved BOTOX officially for the temporary treatment of frown lines, making it the first treatment of its kind on the market. In no time, BOTOX Cosmetic became an international hit, used with approval in 95 countries and rising to the top as the #1 selling treatment in the category. 

Did you know that nearly 100 million vials of BOTOX Cosmetic have been sold here in the United States since 2002? With that magnitude of popularity and success, it is no wonder that National Botox Day is being celebrated on November 17th. Isn’t it time to try BOTOX and see the results for yourself?

BOTOX carries a number of positive benefits. The first is the potency to make forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines less noticeable. The predictable results are subtle, ensuring that you look like yourself but with less visible facial lines. The treatment is simple. You’ll be able to get right back to your day following BOTOX injections as there is minimal downtime after your appointment. You’ll start to see changes between 24 and 48 hours after treatment with full results visible in 30 days, lasting up to 4 months.

Wrinkles and other facial lines can age you beyond your chronological age and they are caused by a number of factors from the loss of collagen as we get older, damage from free radicals in the environment and the sun, as well as cellular changes. We raise our eyebrows, frown and squint regularly throughout each day. These repeated muscle contractions take a toll on our skin as it folds and furrows, eventually becoming facial lines. Injecting BOTOX under the surface temporarily quiets the activity of the muscles that cause moderate to severe frown lines. 

Don’t be fooled by imposters. BOTOX Cosmetic has 16 years of published studies to stand behind this uniquely processed product. There is no “generic” form of BOTOX Cosmetic and its safety and effectiveness can’t be claimed by any other similar products on the market.
