BotoxToday, getting a Botox treatment is a pretty common thing. Like many other cosmetic procedures, it’s a way to enhance your looks and help you appear younger by relaxing frown lines and tightening up the skin. Botox is now known as the injection that reduces wrinkles, but it wasn’t always that way.

This medical treatment has been around since the late 1970s. Among its many applications, Botox has also been used to correct eye muscle dysfunction, treat chronic migraines, reduce muscle spasms, and more. Today, its primary usage comes in the arena of cosmetic improvement, but scientists and doctors continue to treat everything from excessive sweating to the movement disorders associated with Parkinson’s disease with Botox. As a result, people are better assured of the safety of the procedure. It has become such an accepted practice that we see it in the media, hear neighbors talking about it, and we don’t even think twice. I’m sure you’ve all heard of a Botox party where friends get together, invite over a medical professional and receive Botox injections. It’s sort of like the adult version of a sleepover, where you and your pals take turns braiding each other’s hair and playing with make-up. (Ah, there’s nothing like females bonding over beauty secrets!!!) If you’re not sure Botox is for you, ask our Dr. Erica Walters at drerica@pulseskin.com. Remember, the effects are not permanent, and a doctor that you trust is key. Botox doesn’t have to be a huge secret anymore - it’s as routine coloring your hair these days.
