Botox is by far not the only anti-aging injectable on the market. There are so many available anti-aging treatments, it can be difficult to figure out which one might be the best. But out of them all, Botox is still the most popular. In fact, while other anti-aging treatments tend to decline in favor after a while, more people are using Botox every year and have for decades.
But why is Botox so popular? There are actually quite a few reasons. One thing to keep in mind is that more and more millennials are using Botox, not to eliminate lines and wrinkles, but to prevent them. Here are some other reasons Botox is so popular.
You can’t argue with the results from Botox. Botox relaxes the facial muscles and expressions that cause wrinkles around the eyes and frown lines. Although you have to repeat the treatment every four months or so, it definitely works. With continued Botox treatments, your fine lines and wrinkles will begin to disappear, and new lines and wrinkles won’t be able to form. Other anti-aging treatments like dermal fillers also have to be repeated less frequently, but they aren’t as effective.
Convenient and Safe
Most cosmetic treatments are very invasive. And while dermal fillers are by and large safe to use, there are usually fewer potential complications with Botox. A Botox treatment only takes an hour or less, depending on the areas to be treated. Botox is also very safe, with almost no reported side effects or complications.
Unlike most other cosmetic treatments, Botox treatments are affordable. Dermal fillers can be much more expensive than Botox; and, of course, surgical measures are outside of most people’s price range.
