Eight Areas Where Botox Can Work Wonders
Botulinum toxin (popularly known as Botox) has become a popular cosmetic treatment. Here are surprising areas where botulinum toxin is popularly used.
Botulinum toxin is a drug that doctors across the world have been using for cosmetic treatments and otherwise. This drug helps to block out signals from the nerves to the muscles, therefore ensuring they don’t contract. Apart from cosmetics, doctors use this treatment to cure uncontrollable blinking, eyes that look in different directions, chronic migraine and even an overactive bladder.
In the world of aesthetic beauty, botulinum toxin (popularly referred to as Botox) is used to eradicate wrinkles and bring back lost confidence for many. Some of the areas that are popular for this treatment approach are:
Brow lift: A Botox Brow Lift is a procedure that treats frown lines between the brows. After this injection, the client experiences elevated height of eyebrows and eyes that look more open. The practitioner can also choose to add additional injections at the ends of the eyebrows to help relax those muscles as well. Both men and women above the age of 18 with moderate to severe frown lines may benefit from this brow lift.
Neck bands: As the body ages, the skin on the neck begins to show age lines. To rectify this, a Botox neck band is carried out as it eradicates the lines on the neck. After these injections, the client can expect a tighter appearing neck and smoother skin. Getting this treatment is one of the most effective ways to treat platysma bands and get a younger-looking neck.
Bunny lines: Know the lines that show themselves around the nose when one makes a particular face or gesture? These are bunny lines. To eradicate these, Botox injections are used by practitioners for skin on the nose to look smoother. With this, the client can get rid of wrinkles on their nose bridge.
Frown lines: The treatment is also known to take away the look of anger and tension from the face as they can address frown lines easily. Frown lines or Glabella lines are the vertical creases that appear between the eyebrows. In younger ages, these lines go away when the person stops frowning. But as we age, these stay even when a person is not frowning as well. With botox, the doctor will subtly smooth these leading to a rejuvenated and more relaxed appearance.
Gummy smile: If you have a gummy smile, where your gums are exposed more than needed while smiling, then your practitioner might use this treatment approach. People with a gummy smile are often conscious of smiling as 3 mm or more of upper gum tissue is exposed when they attempt to smile. To treat this, botox is injected to the upper lip thus relaxing the muscles in that lip. Due to this, the lip does not rise while smiling thus restricting the exposure of the gums.
Jaw contouring: When used for the jaw, botox can lift the jawline and transform a person’s appearance. Some people have a larger masseter muscle (the muscle responsible for moving the jaw when we eat) thus giving their face a square look. With this treatment, this muscle is relaxed, thus making the jaw look chiseled and thinner.
Horizontal lines: Horizontal forehead lines are the ones that run from one side to another on the forehead. These grow deeper as we age and can hamper the look of the entire face. When botox is used, these will relax the frontalis muscle on the forehead, making it look younger and wrinkle free.
Eye wrinkles: Eye wrinkles or crow’s feet appear close to the eyes on the face as a part of ageing. Botox injections when taken around the eyes can help eliminate these wrinkles and offer a rejuvenated look to the client.
*Note: Getting a Botox injection is a temporary solution, and should be done under an authorised medical practitioners’ supervision and guidance. The client should consult a dermatologist before starting off with this treatment. Have your skin and health conditions closely examined before finally taking the step to get the body rectified with the help of botulinum toxin.
