Botox provides a healthy and non-surgical way to improve a person's facial appearance, one expert in the field has said.
Speaking to NBC Connecticut, plastic surgeon Gary Price said the safety of the process means many women and men can enjoy the effects of Botox injections without worrying about side effects.
"Botox is a very safe and effective way of stopping muscles in the face from making wrinkles that we don't like and it can be used very selectively to take those wrinkles away," he explained.
The process is also better than a facelift, as it can emphasise areas which surgery cannot, like the cheeks, the expert said.
Dr Price suggested Botox can even create a more youthful appearance than going under the knife is able to.
MSN 9News recently reported that Botox is now being used to treat acne scars by relaxing the muscles surrounding pitted areas marked by damaged tissue.
