Over the years, Botox injections have become a popular procedure in cosmetic centers around the nation. You may it’s usual uses for things like fine lines and wrinkles but there are many uses you may not be aware of. Below we are going to discuss a few.
Botox injections have the ability to curb your face’s oil production which can help in the reduction of breakouts. Tiny amounts of Botox can be injected into your face superficially as a means to reduce oil production. However, if may be best to try traditional acne treatments through your dermatologist’s office before trying a botox approach as it can only be used in small amounts (larger amounts could cause your facial muscles to freeze).
Faux Nose Job
If you don’t want to go under the knife for a nose job you may have a better time getting a few injections. Botox can help by lifting your nose and making your entire face appear younger. Did you know that as you age your nose can start to sag? A cosmetic surgeon can inject the botox at the base of your nose between your nostrils to release the muscle that pulls your nose downwards.
Botox can be injected in small amounts into the upper lip’s border as a way to roll up the top lip, making it appear plumper. It’s more subtle than collagen injections and requires less botox than other areas of the face might.
Smoothing Your Neck
Wrinkles can form on your neck in horizontal lines that can be erased with a little Botox. Tiny injections can be made into the muscles below and above your necklines. As we age, the neck muscles can enlarge and begin to protrude which can cause tight, thick ‘cords’ to appear on our necks.
Calming Excessive Sweat
Botox can work to prevent the message between your nerves and sweat glands. If you gland doesn’t receive a signal then it doesn’t produce sweat which means no more wet underarms. Your doctor can place Botox injections into your underarms or palms to curb your hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). These injections can work for up to six months. It’s a great alternative for those that have used things like prescription strength antiperspirants without success. It can be a life-changing inject for that deal with constantly clammy palms or the need to swap shirts for fresh, dry linen during the day.
Soften Your Chin and Jawline
If you are a teeth grinder you may find that your jawline had widened over the years. Botox injections can shrink those muscle and narrow your jawline. It can be a great way to make your cheeks appear lifted and can even relieve soreness and pain caused by teeth grinding.
