You could say that Botox is the face of modern cosmetic treatments. You wouldn’t be wrong, since it’s one of the biggest anti-aging treatments out there. For a lot of reasons, too. In fact, Botox has become such a big part of the beauty industry, that unbeknownst to many, people will refer to just about any cosmetic treatment out there as “Botox”.

So, it’s clear that Botox has become a phenomenon not just in the beauty industry, but a cultural phenomenon in general.

According to Skinly Aesthetics, one of the most well-known dermatology clinics in New York, Botox injections have become the most commonly requested anti-aging treatment around the world. But what exactly makes them so special?

Hopefully, you’ll get to see just why so many clinics and clients alike go crazy for Botox and why it’s so big all across the world.


When most people hear “anti-aging” or “youth restoration”, they think that all that happens is the wrinkles become a little more shallow and thinner, maybe a bit of saggy skin is gone and the rest stays the same. But if you’ve seen quality Botox treatments in action, you know that the results go beyond minor changes. 

I challenge you to look at a before and after photo for Botox and count all the little changes and differences you see. If the treatment was performed in a clinic like Skinly Aesthetics which offers top quality treatment, performed by highly skilled and seasoned professionals, then you’ll be amazed at just how much of an improvement there is. In fact, you can check out their work with the Botox NYC treatment plan on their website.

Botox doesn’t just smooth out skin: it tightens it, but in a way that looks and feels natural. Unlike other anti-aging and wrinkle-combatting treatments, Botox brings out a set of results, without sacrificing a bit of the natural beauty that your face already has. And this happens thanks to the special methodology and technique behind each injection.


Botox, unlike other treatments, works on a more muscular level, as opposed to directly working with the skin. You have fillers, laser treatment, all kinds of other methodologies that directly work with the skin by lifting it, tightening it, stretching it out or pulling it all over the place. Botox, however, works with the muscles and on a deeper level. 

Our facial muscles are naturally always tense. This is perfectly normal and is the case for everyone. But it’s this tension that, over time, causes wrinkles to form on the surface of the skin. But with Botox, doctors are able to counteract this by soothing and numbing the muscles, allowing them to ease out and the wrinkles above them to become less visible.

That’s a quality that the Botox compound or the botulinum toxin, as it’s referred to in the medical sphere, has. It’s able to numb whatever nerve endings it comes into contact with. Now, yes, this can be dangerous and it can cause some damage to the body if used incorrectly. However, the only people that can utilize Botox in procedures, cosmetic or otherwise, are highly trained and require tons of qualifications before they get a chance to operate.


And it’s important to talk about safety as well, since it’s a crucial aspect of any properThis leaves a very small margin of error and absolutely nothing dangerous can happen. The techniques utilized for Botox injections are foolproof, especially in the hands of someone that’s been performing them for years.

If you have any doubt about the treatment’s safety at all, consider the fact that it’s been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and if they had any bit of doubt regarding its safety, it would not be available for use at the moment. Not to mention the fact that it was approved 2 decades ago, back when the compound and technique were nowhere near as fine-tuned as they are today. 

Just by the fact that it’s an injections based treatment makes it far more safe than many others out there. Some procedures involve the cutting of skin or other kinds of damage in order to get the kind of results that Botox provides. While they’re also safe and effective in their own right, with minimally invasive injections, you have far fewer things to worry about when you recover from the treatment. Not to mention there are no scars, stitches or other damage that your body would have to recover from if the procedure was different.

Long story short: with Botox you’re getting the absolute best that the beauty and cosmetic industry has to offer and if you find the clinic, both in terms of quality and price, you’re sure to get a great bargain on your next visit. 


But what’s the point of all these advantages that Botox has, if you couldn’t find it or if it was far too expensive for your budget. Well, luckily, this isn’t the case either. Botox is super easy to find, as most clinics offer the treatment. Considering the demand for it, you can easily find tons of clinics in NYC alone that have the treatment on offer.

And as for the price: you’re in luck too. A common mistake that most people make when considering Botox, is thinking that it’s going to be incredibly expensive, costing them a small fortune for the benefit of looking a little younger. This just isn’t the case nowadays, when Botox is so readily available in many clinics. Sure, it’s not exactly a cheap privilege, but it is something you can easily afford, especially considering the fact that you won’t be going in for Botox for more than 2 times a year. It’s a long-term investment and considering the huge difference it makes in the youthfulness of the face, Botox is worth every penny that you would have otherwise spent on countless other anti-aging treatments, with varying results.
