While no one was watching, Botox Cosmetic turned 20 years old this year. The first scientific articles on the cosmetic use of Botox were published in 1992 by a Canadian husband and wife team. Carruthers and Carruthers, a dermatologist and an ophthalmologist, respectively have published over 200 peer-reviewed scientific articles and 5 text books. Since that time, Botox has been used worldwide by millions of patients.
Botox is one of the safest and most effective tools we offer patients. It helps you look great in the short term and prevents long term skin changes that occur as you age. Botox, when used in combination with dermal fillers, leaves you feeling refreshed. It often reverses the signs of age by smoothing wrinkles and restoring volume.
