5 Reasons Botox is the Most Popular Cosmetic Procedure (by FAR)

A smiling woman receiving Botox. In this article we ask, why is Botox Popular?

As we begin to age, we are all obsessed with a compulsive need to roll back time.

We want the same younger looking smooth skin back that we once took for granted.

It is for this reason that age-defying treatments and medicines have been so popular lately. Lotions and over-the-counter creams are certainly popular, but Botox is one treatment that people unanimously vouch for. Its satisfaction rates are first class, meaning that the vast majority of people who receive Botox will have it again. This is perhaps what it’s known best for; its incredible ability to fight wrinkles. But this isn’t the only reason that it’s so popular.

Read on to find out more.

1.    It produces quick results

Well, we all have heard of the night creams that can fight your wrinkles and keep your skin fresh but one thing that we all would agree to is that their results are not fast. It can take years before their effectiveness begins to show.

So, why wait for years when you can get a fresher wrinkle-free skin in no time at all? An average Botox session takes 30 minutes, with the effects visible in a day. Any treatment that provides such results without any anaesthesia or surgery is well worth looking into. With Botox, you can get the treatment done and still make it to the afternoon lunch on time.

2.    It isn’t too expensive

Botox is certainly not the only treatment for wrinkles. With some research, you’ll come across a huge variety of options. Among these options (such as dermal fillers, or facelifts), Botox stands out as much more economical.

Since it produces semi-permanent results it is a considerable option for the people who are in the early years of their life and not looking for anything permanent as yet.

3.    It causes no discomfort

Botox treatment is nothing but injections that are administered in the areas with the most wrinkles. Except for a bit of pricking and slight discomfort the procedure causes no serious pain or trauma to the skin. In fact, it requires very little downtime! An hour of lying down and massaging the concerned parts would be enough to ensure great results. Moreover, since it is not a surgical procedure, the chances of it going wrong or causing any side effects are close to none.

That said, it carries risks as with any medical procedure. These should be minimised by seeing a fully qualified and experienced doctor.

4.    It is long lasting

With all the points covered above, you would expect it to not work its magic for too long. If that’s what you though, you are in for a surprise. Its results can last for months before you feeling the need to go for a touchup. Most people’s treatments last between 2 to 6 months.

5.    It is not just about the looks

The benefits of Botox are not just associated with a better-looking skin. It has found use in preventing and treating severe migraines, and has long been used to treat hyperhidrosis.

These are just some of the many reasons why Botox is one of the best treatments to have in the UK for a smoother wrinkle-free skin. It is convenient, FDA approved and really effective.
