In 2018 alone, just under 7.5 million Americans tried Botox. To put that number in perspective: since the year 2000, Botox procedures have increased eight-fold. That’s 800%! People of all ages, genders, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds are getting Botox (and keep coming back for more). Why?
There simply isn’t any competition when it comes to safe, effective, and reliable non-invasive anti-aging solutions. Over the years, your skin both loses its elasticity and picks up some lines from frequent expressions (like laughing and frowning.)
Botox works by targeting the underlying facial muscles, relaxing, and softening them to create younger-looking, smoother skin. Appointments don’t take long, and the treatment requires no downtime whatsoever. You may experience some very slight redness, swelling, or discomfort, but these symptoms tend to pass within a few hours.
Whether you’ve been considering getting Botox for years or are just starting to dip your toes in the waters–2020 is the best year yet to treat yourself to this hugely popular procedure.
A New Year, Time for a New You
As we mentioned, every year for the last two decades has seen an increase in the number of Botox patients. From celebrities to newlyweds to moms to businessmen around the country, everybody’s doing it (even if they don’t admit it). So what’s stopping you?
Botox is a non-invasive way to look and feel like you–at your very best. Today, it’s not surprising to hear your friends and loved ones talking about how much they loved their treatment at brunch. Plus, Botox isn’t just for those of us old enough to have considerable wrinkles. Younger people are turning to Botox and other non-surgical treatments and fillers as a “preventative” measure to maintain gorgeous, youthful skin. Dr. Parkins has seen another big trend: the Botox 30th birthday present.
At the beginning of a new year, most make some kind of commitment to exercise, eat healthier or a take better care of our skin. But keeping your momentum when you can’t see change is hard.
In fact, Psychology Today says one of the primary reasons it’s so difficult to follow through on resolutions long-term is that our brains aren’t built for consistency without rest and rewards. Without these components, quitting before you reach the finish line is all too easy. Botox, and other non-invasive transformative treatments like CoolSculpting can make all the difference and are a great way to commit to loving your body. Plus, once you’re waking up in the morning excited to see yourself in the mirror, heading to the gym becomes considerably easier.
Look Your Best, Feel Even Better
The benefits of Botox go beyond keeping up with your 2020 fitness goals and looking younger, fresher, and firmer. Studies have shown that people who improve their appearance with cosmetic procedures tend to be happier and maintain higher self-esteem on average. This subtle, but significant emotional boost will manifest across your professional and personal life–empowering you to make this new year what you want it to be.
Plus, Botox is more effective than ever. You don’t have to worry about losing expressiveness or feel stiffness. We can build a treatment plan to provide the anti-aging you want while accommodating your busy life and making sure you never look “stretched” or “done.”
