Botox in Omaha

Once frowned-upon, now the most popular

Introduced in the 1980’s for treating disorders of the optic muscles and vocal cord spasms, Botox also found a role in cosmetic facial enhancement. In 2002, the FDA approved Botox for use as an injectible in cosmetic procedures. Today, it is approved in more than 75 countries, and is one of the most researched toxins and the most studied medicine in the world.

Since its widespread acceptance, Botox injections have helped millions of men and women prevent or eliminate unwanted wrinkles and facial lines. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Botox injections accounted for over 4.8 million procedures—more than any other cosmetic procedure.
