Botox has deep roots in clinical medicine. In the mid 20th century, the base substance of Botox Cosmetic was frequently used to help patients with muscular disorders gain comfort from unexpected spasms and tension. It was in clinical use where the cosmetic advantages of this neuromodulator were discovered. Today, Botox is one of the most common anti-aging treatments; popular amongst men and women of all ages.
One of the reasons that the signs of aging become more and more obvious is because the body produces less and less collagen with every passing year. As stores become depleted, the matrix that lies just beneath the skin can no longer support upper layers of tissue as it once did. The result: deflated cheeks, saggy jowls, under eye bags, and the appearance of age. Fillers quickly resolve fine lines and wrinkles by plumping them with a biocompatible material that the body metabolizes over several months time.
Because most of the signs of aging that occur in the skin are related to collagen loss, it would make sense to restore youthful skin with collagen itself. This is a method that was once much more common that it is today. Due to the need for testing prior to treatment, collagen injections have taken a backseat to filler products such as Sculptra. This injectable is more than a filler, it is a substance that prompts the body to generate additional collagen for up to 2 years.
