Why Botox Continues to Have a High Satisfaction Rate

Gynecologic Surgery & Menopause Solutions

In the medical world, where new treatments that improve upon existing options are always being released, it’s truly astounding that Botox® has held on as the number one minimally invasive treatment for nearly two decades. In fact, in 2017, it was the top cosmetic treatment by a long shot, with 7.2 million Botox procedures compared to only 2.7 million for the second-place procedure, dermal fillers.

Botox continues to have a high satisfaction rate, not only with our patients at Gynecologic Surgery & Menopause Solutions, but across the U.S. There are many reasons why women love Botox, but when you get right down to it, the bottom line is this: Except for plastic surgery, nothing works quite like Botox for eliminating the most noticeable and deep wrinkles on your face.

Botox smooths away severe wrinkles

All wrinkles are not the same. Your face develops two types of wrinkles as you get older, and they each require different treatment. One type, called static wrinkles, form due to normal age-related changes like thinning skin, dehydration, and the loss of collagen.

The wrinkles targeted by Botox, dynamic wrinkles, become ingrained as you frequently use the same muscles to make certain facial expressions. You know the wrinkles I’m talking about because they’re always the most noticeable and deep wrinkles on your face: frown lines, laugh lines, forehead furrows, and bunny lines across the bridge of your nose.

If you don’t want plastic surgery, Botox is the best treatment because it gets to the cause of those wrinkles: their underlying muscles. After I inject Botox into the muscles, it stops nerve impulses. As a result, the muscles relax, which means the wrinkles relax too, eliminating even the most severe dynamic wrinkles.

Botox produces natural-looking results

Many women are concerned that Botox injections might make take away their natural facial expressions, but that doesn’t happen when it’s administered by an experienced doctor.

When I inject Botox, I carefully target the few specific muscles that are responsible for your wrinkles, leaving the majority of your facial muscles free to move. As a result, your face stays beautifully expressive, and you still look natural -- just better, younger, and revitalized.

Fast results after only one treatment

All aspects of Botox are amazingly quick. Your treatment only takes about 10 minutes, so it’s super fast. You’ll also get speedy results. You won’t see an immediate difference because it takes a little time for Botox to work, but the full impact is visible within 24-48 hours. And you only need one treatment to get optimal results.

No downtime required

If fast treatment and quick results aren’t enough to make you happy with your Botox procedure, here’s another reason why so many patients keep requesting Botox: You don’t need to take downtime. You’ll need to follow a few precautions, like avoiding strenuous exercise for several hours and not rubbing the treated area for 24 hours. Beyond that, you can get right back to your normal daily routine as soon as your session is finished.

Safe treatment with reliable results

In addition to all the other benefits, I can add one more: safety. Botox has a long history of safe use and not just for cosmetic treatments. It’s also used for numerous medical treatments, including in delicate areas like the eyelids to stop uncontrollable muscle twitches. Simply put, it couldn’t be injected right around the eyes if it wasn’t safe.

 

Botox has been FDA-approved for treating facial wrinkles for nearly two decades. During that time, it has accumulated a wealth of information showing consistent results and success in rejuvenating women’s appearance.
