What is Botox used for?
Botox can be used for the treatment of many different conditions, although it is primarily used in the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. While it won’t cure clients of wrinkles, it will help to reduce the appearance of them by relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles to form with repeated contractions. Botox works by blocking the signals to the muscles that cause them to contract, so by blocking the muscles from being able to move, it is able to treat conditions that are caused my muscle contractions. On the face it is primarily used to treat wrinkles and fine lines between the eyebrows, across the forehead, at the corners of the eyes and around the nostrils. Botox can also be used to treat neck spasms, excessive sweating, lazy eye and an overactive bladder. It has also been shown to help some people find relief from chronic migraines and help minimize nighttime teeth grinding. Your doctor will help you determine if Botox is right for you and can walk you through the risks and benefits, as well as anticipated results.
How long should Botox last?
Botox treatments won’t last forever and will need to be repeated on an ongoing basis in order to maintain the results that they provide. The longevity of Botox treatments will vary from one Client to the next based on the severity of their case and how their body reacts to the treatment, as well as how slowly or quickly the person is naturally aging. Botox treatments can typically last for anywhere from three to six months. With regular Botox injections for a prolonged period of time, clients may notice that they are able to extend the time between treatments a bit longer. This is because the repeated injections start to cause the muscles to relax over time, meaning they won’t contract as easily or as much as they did prior to starting Botox treatment.
What are the advantages of Botox?
Botox injections are quick and fairly painless and can be easily performed in a doctor’s office without any type of anesthetic. The doctor can apply a numbing agent to the injection site to help with the minor pain associated with the injection itself but otherwise it is a simple procedure. Botox is an effective treatment of anti-aging by reducing and minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on various areas of the face. Botox is non-surgical and non-invasive so there is no scarring, stitching or incisions made, plus downtime after treatment is minimal, if there is any at all. It can also be used successfully on different areas of the face, although it is recommended if you are treating more than one area, to keep the total number of areas to a minimum. Botox also has many benefits other than just anti-aging and can help with a variety of conditions without the need for painful, expensive surgery.
Does Botox help with aging skin?
Yes, Botox is commonly known and used as a treatment for aging skin. While it does have several other benefits, it continues to gain popularity as an anti-aging treatment due to the ease of the procedure, accessibility to clients and the overall benefits it provides in the reduction of wrinkles and fine lines. While it doesn’t cure aging skin, as nothing can do that, it does prevent the muscles of the face from contracting and causing the skin to crease. Its this repeated muscle contraction that leads to wrinkles, so by blocking the contraction from happening, the wrinkles don’t appear on the face. Botox injections can be used on all parts of the face to help minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Although most often used on the forehead, between the eyebrows and at the corners of the eyes, it can also be injected into the skin around the nostrils, on the chin and at the top of the nose to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.
