Get the Best Westbank Botox
The use of botulinum toxin, commonly known as Botox, has become very popular over the years for its cosmetic uses to reduce wrinkles and reverse signs of aging. The neurotoxin works by temporarily paralyzing muscles, thus removing wrinkles on your face. The injections can be done relatively quickly, require no recovery time, and are a quite uncomplicated cosmetic procedure for your face.
There are also medical uses of Botox. Many patients have found success using Botox to treat muscular conditions, chronic headaches, migraines, and spams. Though the results are only temporary, the procedure remains vastly popular for both cosmetic and medical reasons. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, over 7 million botulinum toxin type A (including Botox) procedures were provided in 2016, which is a leap of almost 30,000 procedures from the year before.
