One of the most popular noninvasive cosmetic treatments is BOTOX®. Even though there is still a certain undeserved stigma associated with BOTOX® it represents a safe and reliable way to reduce those unwanted frown lines and creases.
BOTOX® is a revolutionary FDA approved drug made from the bacterial toxin botulin. It is used in very small doses and is not harmful. These BOTOX® injections work by weakening or paralyzing certain muscles in the face. Most of the lines and creases formed on our faces are from squinting, scowling, laughing, and raising eyebrows and as we age these wrinkles and creases can become more prominent. BOTOX® is often used to treat these unwanted lines and wrinkles and it can temporarily remove them leaving you to feel more confident. There is a saying that, “if you don’t crease the envelope, you’ll never get the line”. BOTOX® can prevent the permanent development of deep, inset wrinkles.
While most people use BOTOX® as beautifying the face it is far from being just a cosmetic injectible. Did you know it can used to treat migraines? BOTOX® can reduce muscle tension and can create less strain on the nervous system. Below are some other uses for Botox® that you may not have heard about:
- Severe underarm sweating-hyperhidrosis
- Cervical dystonia – a neurological disorder that causes severe neck and shoulder muscle contractions
- Blepharospasm – uncontrollable blinking
- Strabismus – misaligned eyes
- Chronic migraines
- Overactive bladder
- (The most common use) Temporary smoothing of facial wrinkles and improving your appearance
As attitudes towards beauty continue to shift and evolve the stigma should lessen as well. BOTOX® is a tried and tested path to younger-looking skin. It is safe and effective and results can last up to 4 months. I love BOTOX® and our clients do too. Come in for BOTOX® today and you’ll not only feel Flawless, but you’ll be more confident.
