No doubt you’ve heard about BOTOX®. It’s one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the USA today. From celebrities to the girl next door, it’s not hard to find somebody who has experienced its incredible benefits. Today, we’re going to take an up close and personal look at the cosmetic treatment that is BOTOX®.
How Does It Work?
BOTOX® essentially works as a barrier between the brain and nerve endings. By ‘blocking’ the signals sent from the brain to these nerve endings, the treated area of skin is able to remain smooth. This creates a much more youthful look in the targeted area. The same theory also applies when BOTOX® is used to treat medical conditions such as excessive sweating.
When Was the Treatment First Used?
BOTOX® was first used in 1977 to treat strabismus (a problem with eye muscles).
What are the Benefits?
There are a great many benefits to BOTOX®. Let’s take a look at some of them:
As we grow older, we naturally age. There is nothing we can do to stop this process or completely reverse it. BOTOX® helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in the face, restoring some of that lost youth.
When you look younger, you naturally feel younger. It’s that simple.
When you look and feel better, your self-confidence is boosted as well. This can lead to an improvement in your life in general. You may even feel more confident and in control at work, home, and in the bedroom.
What are the Hidden Benefits?
Although BOTOX® is used for cosmetic reasons, there can be some alternative benefits that you didn’t expect. Let’s take a look at some of them:
Involuntary Muscle Spasms
BOTOX® can relieve involuntary muscle spasms, such as eye twitches and neck spasms.
The treatment can also relieve excessive sweating and the body odor caused by it.
BOTOX® can also alleviate migraine pain.
How Long Does It Last?
Generally, the results of the treatment last for months at a time before repeat injections are necessary for ongoing benefits.
