Wrinkle-rexia Story about Botox Overusage is Ridiculous

A medical group out of UK has created a non-story about Botox. Any procedure can have its devotees and its abusers. The same is true for Botox.

Cosmetic Botox is safe for the reduction of facial wrinkles. People can become obsessed with any procedure. It is up to the cosmetic or plastic surgeon to educate the patient on the proper treatment. At my practice, I meet with each individual client to discuss their needs and direct them to the proper procedure.

Medical spas and surgeons' offices are not cookie cutter places. The physician should be able to individualize each client's treatment. This means at times directed patients away from treatments that will not give them benefit.
