How Botox Became So Common

A few decades ago, if you were to look into the amazing compound that is Botox, it’d be pretty hard to believe that it would become a common trend for so many people. Even to this day, there are people that still see the compound as a privilege only rich people can afford.

The truth is, that Botox is actually very these days and you can get treated for relatively low prices, it’s just a matter of looking in the right places at the right times. Regardless of what you think of it, the big cosmetic trend for the past few years has been Botox NYC residents are going crazy about it recently.

So we’re going to understand just why this happens, how Botox grew to this popularity and why you should change your mind about it.

Safety

It’s easier to jump on the bandwagon when you hear so many rumors. The term “jumping on the bandwagon” means following in other people’s footsteps just because something they do have is to be popular. And for the longest time, seeing Botox as this expensive and exclusive privilege that only rich people can afford drew a lot of bad rep to the otherwise well-intentioned treatment.

Rumors began to spread of how dangerous Botox was and how getting treated could cause a whole bunch of side effects that would make you look like a plastic doll, puff up your face and give you this bloated look. Add to that a couple of photos of some botched Botox treatments that a celebrity here and there went through and you have this big bandwagon effect where people regard Botox as unsafe or dangerous.

In reality, Botox is one of the safest treatments in the beauty industry. While the compound itself can be dangerous in the wrong hands, it never gets a chance to be used by someone who’s even a little under qualified to work with it. Surgeons have to go through many, many years of rigorous studying and training in order to get the most basic qualifications for any kind of facial treatment.

And Botox has no exception. The surgeons have to be certified to the highest extent to work with a compound and are under constant monitoring to ensure that the safety regulations are all met. This goes for the compound itself. While Botox derives from chemicals which could be dangerous, the compound itself is used in such a way that there is practically no way that it can harm the patient. The compound is constantly being tested and developed, so with each year, every new iteration gets more and more advanced.

And if you don’t want to take my word for it, you can always take the FDA’s (Food and Drug Administration) who approved it decades ago as a completely safe form of anti-aging.

Availability

If you decided to go for Botox a good 10 or more years ago, you’d have to look pretty hard to find not only a clinic that offers the treatment, but also one that’s near where you live. Not everyone is lucky enough to live in big cities like LA or NYC, so not everyone has the same easy access to cosmetic clinics as other people do.

Back in the day, it’d be a whole journey just to get to the clinic, and we’re not even talking about the prices. Just the distances you’d have to travel would be a big enough trip that would make you think twice before booking an appointment.

But now, clinics are much easier to access and a lot more available. While I can’t really comment on their availability in terms of schedule, I can say very confidently that if you live in a metropolitan area of any kind in the US, you are bound to find a cosmetic clinic which offers Botox and for a price that suits you. It’s all just a matter of looking, but you can be sure that you can find something suitable.

A lot of people think that only a few select clinics work with Botox, as it’s this exclusive and very expensive compound when in reality, many clinics are qualified enough to work with it and have many clients that love their treatments and visit them regularly.

Price

And lastly, there’s its price. Some of you may have neglected to get to this part, as you think I’m about to give you a number with a lot of zeros behind it.

The truth is that Botox is not cheap. It’s a cosmetic surgery that de-ages your face by injection a super accurate dosage into key areas of your face. It’s not cheap for many reasons, one being that there is a lot of pressure on the surgeons and many dangerous factors are at play. While the treatment is safe as botched procedures are super rare, this is all thanks to the people that do the work.

So, don’t expect to pay for Botox with a little loose change. But, if you were thinking that the treatment comes with a price tag that only the very rich and fortunate can afford, you’re wrong there too. While Botox is not cheap, for understandable reasons, it’s also not that expensive, considering that you’re not going to get treated on a weekly basis. Botox lasts for around half a year and if you consider the amazing results, it really is worth the price.

Everything, however, has its good price, and you can find some of the best prices on Botox in big cities, like NYC, where there are a ton of different clinics to choose from, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. One of these happens to be MiracleFace MedSpa and their Botox NYC treatment plan, hailed as one of the best deals in the city.
