The most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, is Botox. This dermal injection utilizes a purified protein known as botulinum toxin type A, which is a naturally occurring substance used for both aesthetics and medication. Cosmetically, Botox injections act as neuromuscular inhibitors to limit their movement and prevent continued wrinkle creation.
In 2013 alone, there were 6.3 million botulinum toxin injections, and the most common brand used was Botox. Botox injections offer an affordable treatment option that is quick and convenient, taking less than an hour for a session. This non-surgical injectable is a great tool to keep you looking young without ever having surgery.
