It seems like everyone is talking about Botox these days. After all, it is an incredible cosmetic procedure. But most of us recognize it as an anti-aging treatment. It beautifully relaxes the facial muscles to eliminate wrinkles and fine lines. But it is not all Botox is good for. Here are some surprising benefits of Botox you might have never heard of before.
What is Botox?
Botox is a neuromodulator known as “Botulinum toxin A.” It works by blocking the interaction between nerve and muscle cells. Higher doses of it can cause paralysis and even death. Only the injectable expert knows how much concentration is needed to relax the muscles.
Surprising Benefits of Botox
Controls Sweat Production
One of the wonderful benefits of botox is it can help control sweat production. Excessive sweating is known as hyperhidrosis. People suffering from it may sweat even at the cooler temperature. Botox inhibits the activity of the chemical acetylcholine responsible for stimulating the sweat glands and controls sweating in armpits, feet, and hands.
Botox reduces migraine. Though the correct mechanism is still not entirely known. It blocks the pain signals and relaxes the muscles in the head, so they are no longer sensitive to pain. In addition, the patients who receive botox in the forehead and temple region to fade wrinkles have reportedly had fewer headaches.
The primary cause behind acne is the excessive production of sebum. Botox curbs the oil production and reduces breakouts. Though it is not so helpful for controlling severe acne, it has been found to reduce the pore size and make the skin clearer and shine-free.
Softens the Jawline & Chin
The natural aging process reduces the definition in your jawline area and results in a square-shaped jaw. It can transform your appearance completely. Botox injections in the lower cheeks on each side of the face can soften the broad-jaw effect. It provides a more contoured look with a slimmer and more symmetrical face.
The Nose Job
When you cross the age of 40, your nose begins to sag and looks more hooked. It results in a droopy face appearance. Botox incredibly lifts the nose and brings you back to your youthful days. To treat the sagging nose, the dermatologist injects Botox at the base of the nose to release the depressor muscle and make your whole face appear lifted.
The lip flip is a cosmetic procedure in which a dermatologist carefully injects a small amount of botox into the upper lip to relax the muscles. As a result, the lip curls upwards and gives a fuller and pouty appearance. The lip flip provides you with subtle and natural-looking results. If you want to add the volume, try the lip fillers along with botox for your lips.
Helps You with a Gummy Smile
People with a gummy smile feel a little conscious in the gatherings and avoid smiling. When they smile, their upper lip thins out and creates a disappearing effect. The makeup, highlighting, and contouring techniques may cover it up, but they are not so effective. Plumping the lips with dermal fillers and injecting a few units of botox in the right spots along the upper lip helps the muscles relax and reduces the gums’ appearance when you smile.
Can Smoothen the Neck Lines
The long horizontal lines around your neck are the signs of aging. But no worries, the botox can help with that. A dermatologist injects it between the lines that extend around your neck. It relaxes the neck muscles and reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
