Each year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons releases a report that calculates the number of cosmetic procedures performed in the United States — both surgical and non-surgical. Since its introduction in the early 2000s, Botox® and its counterparts have held the number one spot for minimally invasive procedures, which is a testament to the success of these quick-and-easy injections.
In 2020 alone (before COVID-19), 4.4 million botulinum toxin type A treatments were administered, helping millions of men and women erase the telltale signs of aging.
At Advanced Aesthetics Lopez Plastic Surgery, Dr. Manuel Lopez, Dr. Christopher J. Micallef, and OUR HIGHLY TRAINED PROVIDERS have extensive experience administering Botox. Over the years, we’ve helped scores of our clients to achieve their cosmetic goals in the quickest, easiest, and most economical way possible with cosmetic injectables.
Here’s a look at why Botox continues to reign supreme.
The path of least resistance
While we can garner great results through plastic surgery, understandably, not everyone wants to make that commitment. Since we administer Botox through injections, the approach to anti-aging is far less invasive.
While you may experience some redness or bruising around the injection sites, these side effects are both uncommon and short-lived.
Standing the test of time
Many products burst onto the scene then fade away, but not Botox. The fact that this cosmetic injectable has held the number one spot for so many years is proof that Botox has met, and exceeded, everyone’s goals.
Of course, no matter how easy or popular a product is, it still needs to work well, and Botox certainly excels in efficacy.
With Botox, we can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in those highly visible areas on the upper half of your face, including:
- Your forehead
- Between your eyebrows (your frown line)
- Around your eyes (crow’s feet)
When paired with dermal fillers on the lower half of your face, we can perform a “liquid facelift” that delivers dramatic results.
Just days to dial back years
After we administer your Botox injections, all you need to do is wait 3-7 days to erase years from your appearance.
An easy routine
Another reason why our clients love Botox so much is that they can make these quick-and-easy treatments a regular part of their beauty regimens. When the Botox results begin to wear off, usually in about four months, all you need to do is come back and visit us for another round of injections.
