Everyone wants to look younger, and Botox is the most popular product today for rolling back the years. Tiny doses of a purified version of the neurotoxin are injected into the muscles that cause wrinkles, making them relax. First used for frown lines between the eyebrows, the treatment is now considered a safe and effective method for smoothing crow’s feet around eyes, “laugh” lines around the mouth, sagging eyebrows, forehead furrows and neck bands, and can also help other conditions such as migraine headaches and neck spasms. Noticeable wrinkle-smoothing results typically last about four months. Botox treatments are available from plastic surgeons and dermatologists, but many people opt for the more relaxing surroundings of a med spa, offering non-surgical procedures in a spa-like environment.
