Botox Cosmetic® revolutionized medical esthetics providing simple, effective and affordable solution to defy aging. With 95% of all Canadians being confident in how they look and 80% considering physical attractiveness important in today’s society, and two in three Canadians wanting to look younger for their age, Botox plays a great role in modern medical esthetics.
Botox Cosmetic® temporarily eliminates or reduces dynamic wrinkles of the face and neck, and these benefits are obtained with little discomfort during a brief treatment session, much shorter than a lunch break. With systematically growing number of properly trained Botox providers, and proven record of safety over the last 18 years, Botox Cosmetic® became a truly wonder procedure, and was approved for treatment of dynamic wrinkles of the face in more than seventy five countries. With Botox Cosmetic® meeting the criteria of a non-surgical cosmetic procedure that won public heart (effective and safe, simple and quick, non-invasive, minimal discomfort, affordable), Botox® earned it first position among all cosmetic procedures in North America. Almost three million Botox Cosmetic® procedures are performed annually in North America and this number is steadily growing as more women and men learn about its age-defying benefits.
How do the facial wrinkles form? With skin aging, losing its natural high moisture content, and repeated frowning, a special pattern of dynamic wrinkles form, giving our faces a characteristic pattern of ‘frown’ (glabella), ‘worry’ lines (forehead), and ‘crow’s feet (sides of the eyes) wrinkles. The above photos readily present true benefits of Botox Cosmetic® as the wrinkles are simply gone a few days after the Botox application, that last 3-5 months or longer.
