Even before it was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration as a cosmetic treatment for specific facial lines in 2002, botox injections have already been widely used in Hollywood as a treatment for facial lines. Botox has been popularly regarded as the “miracle of youth” due to its reliability, relative affordability, and convenience. Botox promises a quick fix, no surgery and no downtime, and can even be administered during lunch break. It only takes about 15 minutes for a botox treatment.
Botox involves the injection of botulinum toxin into the facial muscles resulting in a temporary frozen state. This results in a smoothening and improvement in the appearance of wrinkles and lines. However, due to its temporary effect, which lasts around three to four months, continued regular injection is necessary to maintain the overall appearance of a wrinkle-free face.
Regardless of how we might think about botox, it has without a doubt become a permanent cultural force among the majority. It has become popular for the younger generation, as young as nineteen, to have botox injection. This is because botox has also been used to prevent facial lines appearing permanently. It was noted that the injection of botox early may decrease the likelihood that it will appear permanently on the face.
