What Are Botox Cosmetic Injections?

Botox cosmetic injections are among the newest beauty treatments on the market, but this concept hasn’t been around that long. The first Botox cosmetic injection was developed in 1991 by Dr. Arnold Kornmehl, a German plastic surgeon. Since then, Botox Cosmetic Injections have been modified and formulated to help improve the patient’s appearance, including eliminating lines and wrinkles. Whether you’re a man or a woman, Botox can help you recapture your youthful appearance. Bloom Aesthetics Med Spa offers affordable, professional services and a variety of products that will help you achieve the new you.

Botox cosmetic injections are a non-surgical treatment that temporarily paralyzes muscles, which relaxes them, resulting in smoothed, relaxed skin. During the procedure, the doctor places a solution at the source of the problem in the muscle. Once injected, the fluid travels through the nerves to the targeted muscle, where it causes the muscle to contract, greatly reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines. Since Botox cosmetic injections can be used on any part of the face, lips, eyes, neck, or any other area, the cosmetic effects last up to several months before you might need to repeat the procedure.

While Botox injections are typically performed only on the face, they have recently been approved for use on the neck, hands, legs, and armpits as well. However, Botox is not a cure for any condition, and patients must follow their doctor’s orders regarding exercise, diet, and other activities. The treatments are generally safe and produce minimal side effects, although increased sensitivity to the sun may occur in some patients.
