The Benefits of Botox

Posted on January 6, 2017

Botox injection are the most popular non-surgical aesthetic procedure in the United States. Botox has several medical purposes but it’s cosmetic uses are the most sought after. Botox is made of Botulinum Toxin which blocks nerve signals and prevents facial muscles from contracting. Facial expressions cause fine to deep lines overtime, but can be lessened by relaxing muscles with Botox.

Botox Benefits

The Benefits

Minimally Invasive- Botox is an injection that is relatively painless and can be done quickly with very little downtime.

A More Relaxed Appearance– Many people express the concern of their resting face looking tense or angry, and Botox can relax these muscles to produce a softer, friendlier appearance.

Corrects Asymmetry– If your face appears slightly uneven, Botox can be used to relax one side to give a more symmetrical appearance.

The Look of Vitality– After fine lines and wrinkles are softened, your skin will appear refreshed and rested in a subtle and natural way.

Can Be Used Preventively– Some younger patients in their twenties that show little to no signs of wrinkles can use Botox to lessen the chance of wrinkles forming by weakening the muscles that cause them.

In addition to proper skincare, Botox Cosmetic is a very effective tool in the treatment of wrinkles and fine lines. In addition to cosmetic benefits, you also may also be interested in some of the more medical benefits. Since Botox prevents muscle contraction, it has been proven effective in treating muscle spasms (often of the eye), chronic migraines, and crossed or lazy eyes.

Although there is little risk associated with a Botox procedure, you should always discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns with a skilled medical and cosmetic dermatologist.
