What is Botox Treatment and what are its Benefits?

Monday, January 25, 2021


You have probably heard of Botox and automatically assumed it’s a celeb thing. While it’s true that lots of celebrities get Botox treatment to maintain their youthful looks, so do many of us non-celeb folks. There is nothing wrong with taking care of how you look as long as you can afford the treatment and select your treatments carefully.

But what is this popular Botox treatment?

Botox is a naturally occurring protein used in form administered as an injection to treat most visible signs of aging such as frown lines and creases.

Botox blocks chemicals released by nerve cells that cause the muscles to tighten, leading to wrinkles and lines. Botox blocks these chemicals and weakens the muscle contraction a little leading to a smoother skin appearance. This is because you cannot wrinkle the brow that causes wrinkles.

However, it is a temporary solution lasting about six months, but the results are worth it.

However, regaining youthful skin is not all Botox is all about. Some people also get Botox to treat or relieve conditions such as underarm sweating, neck pain, migraines, eye problems, muscular dysfunctioning, and bladder and bowel incontinence.

In general, it treats a myriad of conditions that come with aging.
 Benefits of Botox treatment

Botox is a common skin procedure done in many spas and practices. Botox treatment in Manhattan is very popular not to mention in other states and other parts of the world as well.

If you are not aware of Botox’s benefits, here are some of them.
Treats migraines

One of the greatest benefits of Botox is that it helps relieve migraines. Botox does this by entering the nerve endings and blocks them, preventing them from releasing chemicals that transmit pain associated with migraines. However, this is a treatment for those who frequently suffer from migraines and not treat current migraine.
Treats a drooping brow

A drooping brow causes a person to look beaten, unhappy and tired even when they are happy. While some drooping brows can be treated with a proper diet, some require some particular intervention. Botox treatment is one such intervention. The treatment results in the relaxing of the brow muscles and keep them aloft.
Stop eye twitching

Eye twitching is often a temporary irritation. But in some cases, the twitch is too rapid that it becomes more than an annoyance. It can sometimes cause permanent muscle spasms. Other times, it can be painful and can interfere with a person’s vision.

Botox relaxes contracted facial muscles and stops those twitches.
Takes some years off

Yes, Botox takes away moderate to severe smile and frown lines and forehead lines. Years of those lines forming on the face can take a toll on the skin, visibly seen on the face. Not to mention, the natural aging process that causes the skin to lose elasticity causing deep wrinkles and lines.

All these lines and wrinkles are easily treated with Botox treatment.
Stops excessive sweating

Hyperhidrosis is a common condition that causes a person to sweat excessively than usual. People with this condition sweat even when they are inactive or when the weather is cool.

Botox acts as a shield for sweat glands to stop excessive sweating in areas such as armpits, feet, and hands. While a patient will need to repeat the procedure every few months, it solves that embarrassing problem.
Safe and effective

Botox is extremely effective in dealing with fine lines and wrinkles on the face. It is also effective in treating some health conditions, as discussed above. What’s more, the side effects are very mild and temporary. And of course, Botox treatment needs to be repeated every few months but the results last during that duration.
