The problem with getting old is that aging physically and aging emotionally are two separate processes. Just because wrinkles and fine lines begin appearing in your 40s and 50s doesn’t necessarily mean that you feel any different than you did in your 20s and 30s.
Thankfully, there are ways to ensure that you look as youthful and energetic as you feel. Banishing those lines and furrows can be as simple as getting Botox treatment, a non-invasive therapy that is currently the most popular aesthetic treatment in the world.
In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that the frequency of Botox treatments has increased by 3,641 percent since 1997. The procedure, in which a purified protein is injected into wrinkles to smooth and revitalize skin, accounts for 32 percent of all non-surgical treatments in the U.S.
“These figures show that Botox has grown rapidly in a very short space of time,” said a spokesperson from The Hospital Group, quoted by Private Healthcare UK. “It can hold back the signs of aging in a way that no cream or healthy living plan can offer.”
The immense popularity of Botox is a testament to its effectiveness. With its relative painlessness and versatility, it’s no wonder so many people are turning to this technique to look as young as they feel.
