Botox has been around for 15 years and is one of the most commonly used “drugs” in America. While this drug is aging, the people using it are getting younger. This miracle drug is a strain of the neurotoxin botulinum toxin but don’t let that scare you; it is both safe and effective! Botox is famously used by celebrities (and many others) to reduce:
- Sagging skin
- Facial Wrinkles
- Improve Smoothness of skin to allow smooth makeup application
- Other signs of aging
While these are typical uses for Botox, it can also be used to treat a variety of medical problems such as:
- Treating overactive sweating
- Preventing migraines
- Controlling involuntary muscle spasms
- Gummy Smiles
- Clenching & Grinding
Botox can last up to 3 months, and sometimes up to 6 on clients who get it regularly. While it has various medical uses, it is still a popular cosmetic procedure offered at Dr. Patty’s Boutique and Spa that can eliminate your wrinkles and crow’s feet.
Who Uses Botox?
Over the past decade, in med spas or dermatology clinics, the primary users of Botox are women over the age of 35. Statistically speaking, the usual age of most Botox users fall in between the age of 24 to 70 years old, but this treatment isn’t just for women who have reached their 30th birthday! Many millennials (about 56 percent of them) are visiting the spa for their Botox treatments as well. Millennials who are image conscious and strive for the perfect selfies to put on Instagram are choosing this treatment to prevent the first signs of aging causing the popularity of this procedure to soar.
Is Botox the Right Choice?
Regardless of your age, Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique and Spa can help you eliminate or prevent the signs of aging. Your Instagram photos will never be hotter! More than 100,000 millennials were getting Botox last year, and that number is expected to double over the next year. Botox has become more popular than the world’s previous top selling wonder drug, Viagra. Many millennials have watched their parents have success with this procedure which may be why many of them are turning to Botox for themselves.
Until you reach the age of 20, your skin thickens due to increased production of collagen. Between the ages of 20 and 30, the production stops and your skin enters into a holding pattern. During this time, some wrinkles may form, but your skin doesn’t thicken and remove them as it once would have before you reached 20. After your 30th birthday, your skin will begin to lose about one percent of the thickness it once had which will lead to your wrinkles deepening and then spreading. However, this is where Botox comes into play and helps you have tight, youthful skin once again!
Millennials and Botox
Adults may have turned to Botox after being inspired by celebrities, but millennials have a different motivation for turning to this procedure. Social media has a larger influence than celebrities do and achieving the perfect selfies along with having tons of followers. Millennials want to get their hands on this face-changing miracle drug so that they can have the perfect social media posts.
Regardless of your age, you no longer have to settle for wrinkles. Instead, your Instagram or Snapchat filter can become your real life look with the help of Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique and Spa.
Why is Botox so Popular?
This drug is one of the most popular cosmetic injectables in the U.S. Trying to figure out which celebrities have or have not gotten these injections has become a fun yet popular guessing game because it can look so natural that it’s very hard to tell if injected properly. You want to put your best face forward which means getting rid of your wrinkles has never been more popular.
Botox is a non-invasive treatment that offers a quick, pain-free solution to your wrinkles and you will be able to see the results of your treatment immediately! Plastic surgeries require you to go under the knife, can lead to unwanted results, and leave you with permanent changes. With Botox, the results are semi-permanent, knives are not needed, and you will be left with results that you love!
Why get Botox Treatments?
Botox is faster and cheaper than getting plastic surgery. The results that you get from Botox are fairly immediate and will look more natural, especially when you get it done by a skilled professional at Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique and Spa. People who opt for Botox want to keep their treatment discrete which can’t necessarily be done with plastic surgery. If you want to avoid a lengthy recovery period and a procedure that you cannot keep a secret, let us get you started with a Botox treatment.
