Botox injections are injections that can be used for both medical and cosmetic purposes. When people talk about botox, they're most commonly talking about injections that are administered in the different parts of the face to reduce the appearance of wrinkles. The same botox injection can be used to achieve a variety of effects. When people talk about crowsfeet botox, droopy eyelid botox, botox for smile lines, marionette lines botox and face slimming botox and other forms of botox, these are all the same botox injection, but just used in different areas using different techniques.
Alternative uses for botox include the treatment of neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder and lazy eye. New research is also suggesting that botox injections could also help prevent chronic migraines.
But what actually is botox? Well, put simply botox is a brand name of a toxin made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum. Other popular brands include Dysport and Xeomin to name just a couple. This toxin blocks signals between your nerves and the corresponding muscles, making sure that the injected muscle can't contract.
There are so many benefits that can come hand in hand with the use of botox injections. Wehn botox is injected, it makes sure that muscles in the injected area can't contract. This results in relaxed and softened wrinkles, reducing and minimising signs of ageing. Some people start getting preventative botox at a younger age, before wrinkles establish themselves. In this instance, the facial muscles can't contract, which reduces the establishment of wrinkles in the first place. Those who already have wrinkles will find that botox softens the wrinkles and makes them less prominent.
While ageing is an entirely normal and natural process, the anti-ageing benefits of botox can give many increased levels of self-confidence and make them feel better in their own bodies. If you want a younger look, botox can help you to achieve this. When compared to alternatives, such as facelifts, botox is also non-invasive, requires minimal recovery time and is much lower cost.
Last but not least, botox delivers fast results. Once you get your Botox injections, you can see results as early as three to four days after your procedure. The treatment will continue to work for roughly 3 months after your injections, meaning that it lasts well for the price too.
