One of the first reasons that Botox became so popular is its ability to erase wrinkles in the forehead. With just one or a few simple injections, a person can achieve a younger look without invasive surgery. Over time, and with the addition of other means to reduce wrinkle, Botox has taken a backseat. However, Botox offers a lot more benefits than ever before. Here are four reasons why a woman should consider getting Botox again.
1. Botox Can Help Prevent More Wrinkles From Forming
Botox smooths the skin and reduces or eliminates existing wrinkles. But Botox can also help prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place. Wrinkles are formed when the skin is crinkled. When you laugh, smile, or frown, the skin creases. Typically, these creases occur in the same place on the face, as a result of the underlying muscle position. This chronic crinkling eventually leads to a permanent crease that we call a wrinkle. If your skin doesn’t crease in a particular spot, no wrinkle can occur. That’s where Botox comes in. Botox can prevent your already wrinkle-free skin from creasing, thereby preventing a wrinkle from forming there. For best results, ask your esthetician to apply the Botox treatment in areas where you would be most likely to get wrinkles in the future.
2. Botox Treats Chronic Headaches
For those who suffer from headaches on 15 or more days each month, Botox can help. The American Migraine Foundation reports that the way Botox works—entering nerve endings and preventing the release of certain chemicals—makes it effective against the pain and suffering of chronic migraines. Just two Botox treatments could reduce migraine symptoms by up to 50%.
3. Botox Can Stop Excess Sweating Issues
Hyperhidrosis is a condition where the sweat glands are overactive. This can cause discomfort, rashes and embarrassment. Botox injections have been shown to be effective against overactive sweat glands. Whether you have excess sweating issues on your hands, feet, forehead, underarms or somewhere else, Botox injections can help.
4. Botox Can Treat Eye Twitches
Everyone occasionally gets an eye twitch that seemingly happens for no reason. For most, the twitch simply stops after a few minutes or a couple of days. But for others, eye twitches are worrisome and lasting. Botox is commonly used to stop relentless eye twitches immediately, leaving you with distraction-free vision.
Botox has transformed from being simply a beauty treatment to offering what can almost be described as medical treatment for a host of common concerns. Talk to your esthetician about Botox treatments today.
