What are the benefits of Botox Injections?
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the #1 most common cosmetic complaint patients have is wrinkles.
Approved for wrinkle treatment in 2002 and more recently for crow’s feet by the FDA, nothing smooths out wrinkles quicker than Botox Cosmetic®.
The best way to explain how Botox works:
Botox® works as a shield between the brain and the muscle. Even if your brain is telling a muscle to move–whether this is on purpose or because of misfiring neurons– Botox Cosmetic® will tell the muscle to stay still.
Botox Benefit #1: Treat a Drooping Brow
Also called “Brow Ptosis,” drooping brow can cause you to look unhappy and tired even when you are feeling awake and happy.
In some instances, there are biological reasons for the droop. This might be improved with diet.
Many times, intervention is needed. Administering Botox® results in the relaxing of the brow muscles and, when administered correctly, can keep them aloft.
Botox Benefit #2: Stop Excessive Sweating
“Hyperhidrosis” is defined by the National Library of Medicine as a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably.
People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest.
Just like Botox® can prevent directions given by the brain from reaching the intended muscle, it can also act as a shield for sweat glands.
It is particularly helpful for excessive localized sweating in the patient’s armpits, feet, or hands.
Botox Benefit #3: Reduce Migraine Pain
Many migraine sufferers make the mistake of thinking that the drug stops the migraine itself.
It will, however, reduce many of their major symptoms like sensitivity to light and nausea, making the migraine easier to deal with.
Botox Benefit #4: Treatment for Bells Palsy
Administering the treatment to the paralyzed side of the face–can help relax facial muscles that might have tightened up and become painful. It can also prevent unwanted facial tics.
Administering the treatment to the non-paralyzed side of the face–this Botox® benefit is more cosmetic in nature.
This technique can help relax the movements on the dominant side of the face. This helps give the face a more balanced look even when you are talking or moving your face a lot.
Botox Benefit #5: Stop Eye Twitch/Squinting
It’s safe to think that a twitch is more than a temporary annoyance.
Sometimes the twitching will be rapid and/or constant. Other times the twitch can cause a permanent spasm of the muscle, holding it in a tense position for a prolonged period of time.
In addition to being annoying and sometimes painful, these twitches can also interfere with your vision.
