Botox Gets Boost of Approval by FDA

Botox has become one of the most recognizable brand names in cosmetic medicine; it’s recognized everywhere as being a viable cosmetic treatment, perfect for treating fine lines and wrinkles. It became the first treatment of its kind to be endorsed by the FDA. Back then, in 2002, Botox was used primarily as a treatment for frown lines between the eyebrows. Now, sixteen years later, Botox is recognized by the FDA as a viable and safe treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, but also for crow’s feet, and, most recently, for the treatment of moderate-to-severe forehead lines.

Why Botox for Forehead Lines?

The forehead is a complicated area; we use the muscles in this area to enact every facial expression we have. Everyone will eventually notice lines in this area. The problem with forehead wrinkles is that they can offset your appearance, meaning the lines could make you appear annoyed or perplexed without provocation.
During clinical trials Botox was used alongside a placebo, and over half of the participants who received the Botox injections saw an improvement in the lines and wrinkles on their forehead. And while the results of a Botox injection are temporary, there is a solid clinical foundation to back quality results.
And Botox is not only effective but also safe. The FDA has already approved the product to be safe, especially when the experienced clinical staff at Central Wellness administers the injections. You may have some minor swelling or some mild redness following an injection, but the downtime needed after a treatment is minimal; in fact, there is no required downtime at all following an injection.
Any minor cosmetic issue should be resolved in short time and any discomfort from the swelling should also quickly subside. Remember also that a Botox injection will only take about thirty minutes of your time, and, following an injection, Central Wellness will also provide you complimentary makeup so that you can get back to your day.
