Long gone are the days when people used to put on tons of makeup to conceal all the things on their faces that they used to find imperfect. Cosmetic treatments have now provided the easiest and most effective solution to all cosmetic complaints. Fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring – no matter what the problem is, you will find a cosmetic treatment for each one of them.
Botox injections are an aesthetic treatment that brings back the youthfulness of your face by reversing your biological clock. There are myriad benefits of Botox. A few of them are covered in this article.
How Does Botox work?
But before we talk about the cosmetic benefits of Botox, let’s get to know what they are and how they work. Botox is essentially a brand name for a toxin that is made by a bacterium. This toxin is used as an injection to treat multiple cosmetic problems.
Botox works by blocking the signals from the nerves. Since the wrinkled areas of your skin are caused by the contraction of muscles present in that area, the signal blockage from the nerves relaxes those muscles. As a result, your wrinkles disappear and your skin restores its natural smooth appearance.
The mechanism by which they work makes them highly beneficial for your skin, forehead, eyes, lips, and overall face.
Botox Benefits for Face
If you talk about beautifying and elevating your look with aesthetic treatment, Botox takes the lead. It offers many treatments that enhance your facing by giving it a youthful and smoother appearance.
Forehead Wrinkles Removal
One fine day, you go on a meetup with your friends and take as many selfies as you want, to upload all of them on your social media as a way of storing them for remembrance’s sake. But when you do sit to upload these pictures afterward, you are put off by seeing prominent wrinkles and fine lines showing on your forehead.
This is where Botox comes into the picture with all its lifting and glowing glory. Botox injections can treat your forehead wrinkles, the most prominent ones on your face. They paralyze the muscles in your wrinkly forehead area, causing them to lose their contraction. Thanks to this, you can have a nice and smooth forehead,
Removal of the wrinkles between eyebrows
Another benefit that Botox injections have to offer is the removal of wrinkles between your eyebrows. Thanks to their ability to smooth out the contracted muscles of the wrinkled area, they can remove every last wrinkle between your eyebrows.
Smoothes Crow’s Feet
Crow’s feet are wrinkles that radiate from the corners of your eyes and become more prominent and pronounced when you squint or smile. The name crow’s feet comes from the fact that the wrinkles that appear on the corner of your eyes resemble a bird’s claw, which is enough to give you an idea about how unattractive they can look. But Botox takes all your worries away as it smoothes out those birds’ claws and gives you a finer look.
Gummy Smile Treatment
Botox is your savior if you show gums when you smile and think they are destroying your overall look. When Botox is injected between your nose and upper lip, it freezes the muscles present in that area. Once the muscles present between your nose and lips are frozen temporarily, they stop contracting or elevating. As a result, you no longer show your gums while smiling.
Bunny Lines Treatment
If you develop lines on your nose either from squinting or smiling, you will know how annoying it can get. Botox can also treat these bunny lines, giving you the finest and smoothest appearance.
Botox Benefits for Eye Bags
Botox in crow’s feet not only helps in treating crow’s feet but also reduces tension around the eyes, causing improvement in your eye bags. However, Botox does not remove eye bags entirely, they only improve the under-eye area.
Additional benefits of Botox you should know about
For Underarm Sweating
The reason why your underarms sweat a lot is because of the fact that the gland responsible for sweat production is stimulated excessively. Botox blocks the chemical signal that leads to sweat production and its release eventually. If you are wondering if getting underarm Botox injections can cause you to lose touch or sensation in the area, then that’s not the case at all. You don’t have to worry about losing any type of sensation there.
Other medical conditions
Where Botox is commonly used for several aesthetic treatments, it can also be used for some medical conditions. Those conditions are the following:
- Cervical dystonia: This condition causes your neck muscles to contract involuntarily, leading to a sudden head twist. Botox treats this condition by freezing those contracted muscles.
- Chronic Migraine: If the frequency of your migraines is more than average, Botox can reduce the frequency.
- Bladder dysfunction: An overactive bladder can lead to urinary incontinence. Botox injections can treat this condition as well.
- Other conditions: Eye twitching, hyperhidrosis, muscle contractures, and lady’s eye.
Botox can treat the above-mentioned medical conditions, however, we don’t offer treatments for medical conditions at Syra Aesthetics. The information shared above is only shared for your knowledge.
How long does Botox last?
In general, Botox lasts about 3 to 4 months. After four months, its effect starts wearing off and your nerves start sending the signal to the muscles to contract. This restores wrinkles on the injected areas. For some people, the effect of Botox may wear off in 6 months while for some in 2 months. But in general, it may not go beyond 6 months.
