Botox® is one of the most accessible and affordable options in cosmetic enhancements. As a non-invasive treatment, you won’t need to worry about excessive healing or downtime. There are also several ways that Botox can change your appearance for the better.
Reducing the impact of aging is the most common use associated with Botox. However, there are other benefits for younger people. Due to muscle relaxing properties of Botox, this treatment has applications that can create a slimming effect or provide health benefits.
By blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles, Botox can reduce the impact of wrinkles. Fine lines and wrinkles are softened due to relaxation of the muscles, resulting in a smoother complexion. This approach is usually intended to reduce the impact of aging.
Forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines are the typical targets of Botox. These wrinkles and lines are the result of how the muscles contracting and relaxing impact the skin. Outcomes vary from patient to patient and results are temporary. However, you can repeat Botox treatments when needed to achieve a more youthful look, depending on the severity of wrinkles.
Masseter Muscle Reduction
If you have an overly square jaw, the masseter muscles are likely responsible. These muscles operate the jaw and often bulge when large. Using the muscles more is not necessarily the cause of the problem, so change of diet or talking less will not reduce the impact.
Using Botox, Blaine Plastic Surgery can force a reduction in masseter muscle contractions. Over time, this can result in the muscles becoming smaller. The result is a slimmer looking jaw line, making your face appear more oval shaped and feminine.
Botox Medical Applications
Other uses for Botox are geared toward addressing a health concern. Some of the FDA-approved applications of Botox include addressing crossed eyes, preventing excessive sweating and reducing the impact of migraine headaches. It is important to consult with a relevant, qualified and experienced specialist before opting for Botox as a medical treatment.
