Botox is now something that is a general part of many people’s beauty routine – all over the world people pop to somewhere such as Cheltenham Botox specialist Doctor Kate, to receive Botox injections that can make them look years younger, and it has rapidly become a favourite treatment, not just for rich and famous people but for pretty much anyone.
It was only nineteen years ago that Botox was approved for cosmetic use – and it soon became a big hit in the world of celebrities, with stars from Liz Hurley to Simon Cowell having Botox injections to preserve their youthful looks.
So How Does It Work?
Botox works by stopping the muscles in the area that it is injected into contracting. This means that the wrinkles and lines on the skin in that area appear smoother and therefore give the person a younger appearance.
As well as diminishing the appearance of existing fine lines and wrinkles, many people now are having what is known as preventative Botox. This is where younger clients will have Botox injections into areas where wrinkles may appear in the future, and the theory is that by immobilising the muscles sooner, it will prevent the lines forming.
Why Botox Remains Popular
The reason that Botox has become so popular and successful is that it is not only something which is now easily accessible and affordable, it works well and also is something that you can have done in your lunch hour – in fact having Botox injections can take less time than a haircut!
