Since hitting the cosmetic market in 2002, Botox has completely changed the aging game and the plastic surgery landscape.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 19, 2012
The economy may still be sluggish, but that hasn’t slowed down Botox use one bit. In fact, in 2011, Botox was again the No. 1 cosmetic procedure in the U.S. with 2.5 million users.
Botox has become so prevalent in American society that it has joined the ranks of brands like Google, whose name is often also changed into a verb (i.e. Did you Google it? Do you think she Botoxed again?) Whether in the celebrity media or around the water cooler, Botox is seemingly everywhere.
Dr. Roy Kim, a San Francisco plastic surgeon, created the infographic as a way to provide more factual information about Botox in an easy and fun format.
The infographic covers such topics as the history of Botox, how Botox arrives at the doctor’s office and other approved uses for Botox.
When it comes to getting rid of facial wrinkles, most consumers want to know: How many units of Botox do I need? The infographic gives general unit guidelines for both women and men and also addresses the dreaded issue of injection pain.
And what is a discussion about Botox without a celebrity component? The infographic reveals which Hollywood actresses have admitted to using Botox.
“Since hitting the cosmetic market in 2002, Botox has completely changed the aging game and the plastic surgery landscape,” says Dr. Kim. “People are getting fewer facelifts and looking younger for longer with the help of this relatively easy and inexpensive little injection.”
With the enormous success of Botox, it’s no surprise that competitors are chomping at the bit to get in on the action. The infographic illustrates how Allergan, the makers of Botox, will have some more company in the wrinkle fighting market with Xeomin joining Botox and the fledgling Dysport.
The “Botox - Secrets Revealed” infographic will shed new light on America’s favorite wonder drug, even for the most seasoned Botox aficionado.
