Benefits of Botox 1

Botox was once viewed as an extravagant and somewhat controversial procedure undergone only by the rich and famous, but it seems the tides have turned. Over time researchers have discovered that Botox has many more benefits than originally believed. Botox is comprised of a purified form of botulinum toxin A. This toxin works by blocking the chemical signals that cause muscles to contract, therefor relaxing and somewhat paralyzing the muscles at the site of injection.

This has proven to be incredibly effective in wrinkle reduction and prevention, especially when it comes to “dynamic” wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles are those that appear while moving your face or making certain expressions, think frown lines, laugh lines, etc. When these muscles are weakened, so is the ability to make that specific expression and therefor that specific wrinkle. When administered by a seasoned professional Botox can diminish the appearance of wrinkles without making the patient look stiff or frozen which are the most common negative perceptions associated with Botox. Botox is also a popular treatment for the eyebrow area. Botox can help to lift the brows giving the patient a more youthful appearance.

Furthermore, Botox is no longer solely used for anti-aging and cosmetic purposes. It has also proven quite affective for the treatment of migraines. When injected into the forehead, neck, and shoulders Botox can help to release tension, this relieves strain on the nervous system, thus reducing the frequency of migraines. In addition, Botox has become a popular treatment option for hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can be both embarrassing and uncomfortable. Botox reduces the amount of sweat secreted from the glands near the injection site. As more research is conducted we discover more ways that Botox can be used to treat a variety of concerns.
