Woman getting BotoxDid you know that Botox does more than prevent and diminish fine lines and wrinkles? This cosmetic enhancement is best known for combating the signs of aging, but there are actually a few other benefits from these injections, too. There are various reasons why it’s the most sought-out procedure across the country, and today we’re presenting you with the top four.

  1. Get Rid of Crow’s Feet

Crow’s feet are the unavoidable wrinkles that form outside the corners of your eyes. Sadly, as our skin gets older, it loses its elasticity, because the production of collagen and elastin decreases with age. The folds of our skin become more prominent with each expression and Botox injections are effective for temporary treatment.

  1. Soften Frown Lines

Horizontal lines across the forehead and vertical lines between the eyebrows are two other disappointing signs of aging, but frown lines aren’t caused by frowning. They’re actually caused by facial muscles interacting with sun damaged skin. When Botox is injected, nerve signals are blocked, the muscles relax, and the presence of frown lines is reduced.

  1. Neutralize Over Productive Sweat Glands

As human beings, we naturally sweat, but it’s easy to recognize when your sweat glands are working overtime. Excessive sweating also known as hyperhidrosis, can be counterbalanced with these same injections used to address wrinkles. Sweat glands are stimulated by chemical signals from the nerves, and the treatment blocks the stimulation.

  1. Prevent Migraines

Suffering for hours or even days due to chronic migraines is excruciating. According to the National Library of Medicine, 12% of Americans suffer from migraines, and women are three times more likely to experience migraines than men. When supervised doses of Botox are injected into designated areas, the results can last up to three months depending on the patient.
These top four reasons for Botox are all approved by the Food and Drug Administration. The procedure is non-invasive, the downtime is minimal, and the procedure is virtually painless!
