Botox Is Not Just For Forehead Wrinkles

Botox is now a household name due to the popularity that the show “The Real Housewives of Orange County” brought to it. Some people think Botox is only meant for wrinkles on the face. While this might be true to an extent, there are other significant areas Botox can be applied to on the body. According to how the show portrayed it even without surgery, Botox can be administered around the lips too.

Aside from these, Botox can be used to treat other non-wrinkle condition such as excessive sweating. We all know how excessive sweating can be, especially after a rigorous workout session. It is regarded as a bona fide situation also known as hyperhidrosis. However, excessive sweating can be embarrassing and hurt one’s social life. It can embarrass you on a date night, at work and even your personal life. It tears down your self-image. To curb it, you could first try antiperspirants. But what it fails. Another option is to seek Botox treatment. When the skin is injected with Botox, it blocks the acetylcholine, which is responsible for stimulating sweat glands in the body. A local injection of Botox switches off the sweat glands on the injected site. According to studies conducted, about 81% of patients that apply Botox treatment for sweat reduction purposes notice a reduction in sweating by 50%. Note that it is not meant to cure and there are no permanent effects. But the results can last for many months, and you are advised to administer the treatment repeatedly for persistent results.

Before now, patients who want to soften their jaw and adjust its appearance opt for a jaw reduction surgery. But it takes a long time to notice desired results which might be unnatural with unhealthy side effects. But today, with Botox, a professional cosmetic surgeon can enhance the shape of your face without cosmetic surgery. Women with an overly square or masculine face can soften their facial muscles with Botox. Botox injection is inserted into the masseter muscles (that is responsible for chewing) to soften them and keep them in a relaxed state. Hence, it can contour your face if you have a square jawline without necessarily undergoing surgery. So without going under the knife, patients can boost their self-esteem and enhance their looks.

Unfortunately, smokers line can appear on your mouth even without smoking. They look as vertical wrinkles around the lips which can result from aging naturally. But smokers mostly have these lines puck their lips around their cigarettes frequently. Fortunately, you can get rid of these lines. One of the ways you can do this is by applying Botox. It works by inhibiting the functioning of the nerve impulses to the muscles in the smoker lines part of your face. Most times, a Dermal filler is used together with a Botox injection which fills up the skin to reduce the appearance of smoker’s line and wrinkles on the face. Each person has a unique skin texture and several skin beauty goals, but if you want to reduce the effect of smoker’s lines on your face, you should seek proper medical advice from a medical professional.

Botox injection can be used to treat the effect of necklace lines and other wrinkles in the neck region. It can also enhance the face by altering the downturned corners at the edge of the mouth. There are several possible uses of Botox. If you have any part of your body that you are unhappy with and desire a change, Botox might be a practical solution for you.
