By far, the most widely utilized cosmetic procedure in the United States, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, is Botox. This neuromuscular inhibitor is a member of the botulinum toxin family. Botox injections block nerve impulses of the targeted facial muscles to reduce their movement, ultimately preventing wrinkle formation for up to three months.

In 2014 alone, there were 6.6 million botulinum toxin injections, a 6% increase from the year before. Dysport and Botox injections are the most common brands for botulinum toxin. Botox is a safe process that is also quick and convenient, taking less than 20 minutes for a treatment. This non-surgical rejuvenation can significantly diminish signs of facial aging without breaking the bank.
