Botox Cosmetic has become widely popular with many of our patients for its ability to improve signs of aging, such as wrinkles and fine lines. In fact, Botox Cosmetic has been the top minimally-invasive cosmetic procedure of the last few years, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ (ASPS) 2020 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report.
This FDA-cleared treatment is made from a natural, purified protein that is used to temporarily relax facial muscles giving you a more youthful look. Botox is a neuromuscular blocker and when injected it blocks certain chemical signals from nerves, mostly signals that cause muscles to contract.

#1 Enhances Natural Beauty
One of the most popular benefits of getting a Botox treatment is that can enhance your natural beauty. Botox is used as an anti-aging treatment, as it is an easy way to lessen the appearance of wrinkles.
This means that Botox injections can improve anything from severe forehead lines to frown lines and all parts in between. These areas include:
- Forehead Lines
- Frown Lines
- Crow’s Feet
- Bunny Lines (side of nose)
- Neck Lines
- Dimple Chin
- And more!
#2 Improves Certain Health Conditions
In addition to improving your physical appearance, Botox injections can also improve many other health conditions. Since Botox is a neuromodulator, this means it blocks nerve activity in your muscles, thus preventing unnecessary muscle use. In fact, the FDA has approved its use for a variety of medical conditions, including:
- Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating)
- Chronic Migraines
- Neck Spasms
- Overactive Bladders
#3 Non-Invasive and Fast Procedure
Botox injections are an excellent option for cosmetic procedures because they are non-invasive and fast. A typical treatment lasts about 10 minutes and there is minimal discomfort through the procedure. At Advanced Esthetics, we use a numbing agent to help reduce the discomfort. A small needle will be used to inject the Botox into specific areas of your face and because Botox is a non-surgical procedure, it means that you will have less downtime with your appointment, and you can get in and out quickly.
#4 Quick and Lasting Results
Botox provides nearly immediate results, which is why many people choose this procedure. Typically, people start seeing a difference within 24 to 48 hours after treatment with a continual improvement up to a month. The lasting effect of Botox can vary, but results have shown to last up to 4 months.
#5 Inexpensive Cosmetic Procedure
Botox Cosmetic is also a rather inexpensive cosmetic procedure, especially when compared to other cosmetic procedures and skin care products. Depending on your budget, you can choose to do more or less Botox to fit your needs. Adding Botox to your skincare regime can also help reduce costs of other treatments you would typically purchase, such as other facial surgeries.
