Botox is still a bit of a taboo word, even though by 2018 the global Botox market is set to reach a whopping 1.72 billion pounds. Since the treatment was officially approved by the FDA in 2002, it’s quickly risen to become one of the most sought out anti-ageing treatments worldwide.
It’s no surprise that somewhere in those 15 years, it would be tweaked and optimised to make the whole injecting process a little bit more comfortable for the patient. From ‘baby Botox’ (tiny doses injected in areas of the face), to the botox pen – it’s become easier and less painful to fight wrinkles.
