Demand For Botox Could Be Linked to Photo-Sharing Social Media


We live in the technological world of selfie nation. Although many of us are social media obsessed, we may not be aware that it’s caused an increased physical awareness about how we present ourselves online.

According to Skinspiration, Botox has increased in demand due to this phenomenon–especially in males. Other increasing predicted trends include dermal fillers and “preventative” Botox in order to ward off wrinkles and appear more youthful for a longer amount of time.

Hollywood icons like Kim Kardashian, Renee Zellweger, and others have been in the spotlight for receiving nonsurgical cosmetic treatments, like Botox. It’s a trend that many Americans have followed with millions of Botox treatments performed in the United States alone last year, making it the #1 nonsurgical cosmetic treatment in the nation.

Not only can plastic surgeons and dermatologists perform Botox, but physicians, doctors, and nurses can too. First they must receive Botox certification by attending a Botox training course, like National Laser Institute. With the opportunity to earn CE/CME credits, medical professionals will learn how to safely perform Botox treatments with hands-on clinical training in as little as a weekend.

As a Botox injector, medical professionals typically make an average of $500 on each Botox patient. Treatments take between 30 minutes to an hour to perform. According to a recent study, it was revealed that both Botox and dermal fillers have minimal risks and provide safe results.
