New Orleans Botox Treatments
Botox injections have a range of medical and cosmetic uses. Medically, doctors can administer Botox to treat certain muscular conditions. Cosmetically, people use Botox to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscles. Though it may sound scary, Botox is considered a neurotoxin and is referred to as botulinum toxin within the medical field. Our patients receive our New Orleans Botox treatments for both medical and cosmetic uses.
Although Botox is a powerful poison and can be dangerous if overly administered when used correctly, it has a number of useful applications. Some of the most popular uses of our New Orleans Botox treatments include:
- To medically treat eye squints.
- To reduce excess sweating.
- The removal of facial wrinkles and fine lines.
- To fix leaky bladders.
- To decrease migraine occurrences.
A Changing Market
Botox is no longer a secretive procedure associated with A-list celebrities over the age of 40. Today, more and more young women under the age of 30 have begun to incorporate the procedure into their beauty maintenance routine. Tri-annual Botox treatments have become as normalized as weekly eyebrow wax treatments. Furthermore, people have begun to realize the medical uses of the procedure. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Botox continues to be the most popular minimally invasive procedure with over 6.7 million treatments in 2015 alone.
As the age of treatment receivers lowers, it begs the question of how young is too young? There is legally no minimum age to receive Botox. There are many young medical patients who receive Botox for cerebral palsy management, to control excessively sweaty palms or armpits and migraine control. As a preventative method to stop the appearance of fine lines, women in their 20s and 30s can safely enjoy the procedure every three to four months.
Is it Becoming the Norm?
The stigma surrounding Botox has virtually evaporated. Since its introduction in 2002, the development of the internet has allowed for the sharing of more information on Botox to better educate the population on its multitude of uses. This has allowed doctors to dispel many myths surrounding the procedure. Today, we even see people sharing about their Botox treatments on social media.
