BOTOX® is a cosmetic procedure that has become nearly synonymous with anti-aging. It’s become a popular option for those looking to reduce wrinkles to achieve a younger-looking appearance. These injections have been proven safe and effective. You may not be familiar with the extent of the cosmetic benefits of BOTOX®.
When used in cosmetic injections and in other medical treatments, the purified protein solution found in BOTOX® has been shown to be safe. When injected into the skin, it relaxes the movement of muscles, which is why one of the first medical uses of the solution was for controlling spasms. In particular, eye spasms were commonly treated in this manner. Patients soon began reporting a reduction in their wrinkles and fine lines, leading to research and development of its use in cosmetic procedures that has become so widely seen today.
Age Fighting Benefits
The results BOTOX® offers are usually the primary reasons patients seek this effective treatment. You can look years younger after receiving injections, with fewer lines and wrinkles around your eyes, forehead and mouth. There are also numerous benefits that make undergoing BOTOX® an easy choice. First, it is quick and non-invasive. It only takes about 10 to 15 minutes to treat each desired area.
In addition, you may not need any anesthetic at all, and there is no recovery time with BOTOX®. You can return to your typical routine immediately. Thus, it is an incredibly convenient procedure to fit busy lifestyles. Though the results aren’t permanent, it is likely you will continue to see an improvement in your look for a long time even without recurring treatments.
Along with the cosmetic benefits of BOTOX®, there are actually a number of other medical uses for the treatment. As mentioned previously, it is beneficial in the treatment of muscle spasms.
Along these same lines, it is often used to improve the appearance of lazy eye. This is achieved by simply lifting the lid and brow above the eye to mask the lazy eye’s severity. Those experiencing chronic muscle pain can achieve relief with BOTOX®, as the tightening of the muscles is restricted.
Severe headaches and migraines are lessened when BOTOX® is administered to the shoulder and neck area due to release of the tension that causes these headaches. Also, injections to the bladder can slow constrictions that lead to urinary urgency. Finally, hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, is controlled through the relaxing of the sweat glands with BOTOX® injections.
