When it comes to aging, wrinkles and facial lines used to be a given. Even once facelifts were introduced they were cost prohibitive for most people and required extensive recovery times. With the advent of Botox, however, many more people were given access to top quality anti-aging techniques.

Botox made it possible to appear years younger in a matter of minutes with next to no recovery time. It also has proven to be an effective treatment for a variety of other conditions as well. This article looks at what this treatment is, its many uses, and identifies who might benefit from it the most.

What is Botox?

Wrinkles are results of the muscles beneath the skin than they are a part of the skin itself. Every expression that we make has an impact on our facial muscles, however small, and over time some muscles become more developed than others, causing the skin above them to crease. Botox is a purified version of botulinum toxin protein that is safe and effective for human use. It is injected subcutaneously, reducing muscle contraction in the targeted area. This causes the muscles to relax and lie flat, which in turn eliminates or reduces the appearance of wrinkles.

Botox treatments are quick and simple, especially when compared with other alternatives like facelifts and other surgical options. The results can last for up to six months and may go even longer, depending on the exact conditions that it is being used for.
