HOW DOES BOTOX WORK?
Over time we all make certain facial expressions that essentially end up working against our favor. Repeated expressions such as squinting, smiling, laughing or frowning can create lines to form on the face which turns into wrinkles. While there is nothing wrong with natural beauty, you shouldn’t feel bad about wanting to look good. This is where Botox can help. It is the only anti-aging treatment that works effectively, quickly and is also a preventative measure for future wrinkles. When Botox is injected into the skin it works by blocking the muscles from contracting. The treatment lasts between 3-4 months, however everyone is different. Metabolism comes into play and for some it may be processed a bit faster or slower depending on the person. You will want to schedule your appointments after the Botox wears off to keep up with the results and prevent new wrinkles from forming.
BOTOX ISN’T JUST FOR AGING
Anybody can benefit from Botox and it’s not just for treating signs of age. Botox can help with migraines, gummy smile, excessive sweating, grinding teeth, defining lips and jawlines, and treating neck bands and wrinkles. If any of these are of concern, keep reading below to see how Botox can benefit you.
Migraines can be a pain and damper your quality of life if it’s not taken care of. Botox is proven to be beneficial to those who struggle with ongoing chronic migraines. It is even recommended by doctors. Botox helps treat migraines by blocking the pain signals to the brain.
A gummy smile appears when the upper lip is slightly higher causing the gums to show when you smile. Botox injected above the upper lips will relax an overactive upper lip and decrease the gummy smile.
The same way Botox blocks the muscle from contracting it can also lessen those who produce excessive sweat. The nerve responsible for signaling the sweat glands is blocked and you no longer have to worry about sweating through your favorite tops.
The masseter muscles can make your jawline appear fuller from clenching your jaw or grinding your teeth at night. Botox injected into your jawline can relax those muscles and create a slender looking face. This can also prevent jaw pain that is also caused from grinding the teeth at night from stress.
Did you know you could define your lips with Botox? A popular treatment is the lip flip! Those who are looking for a subtle lift to their lips can receive a small amount of units above the upper lip and in just 6 days the lips will appear fuller and lifted.
As we begin to age some of us will experience horizontal wrinkles that wrap around the neck. Neck wrinkles tend to enlarge or even protrude as you get older. Neck muscles are connected to some of the facial muscles, so the neck muscle can actually pull your facial features downward. One example is smile lines, these can begin to drop lower because the neck is pulling them down. Your answer to treat this concern once again is Botox!
