When you think of Botox, you may think it’s a luxury of the rich and famous. That, however, is a major misconception. Just like with cosmetic
dentistry, Botox benefits not just your looks, but has a lot of practical effects as well. Let’s take a look.
4 Awesome Botox Benefits
1. Reduce your sweating
Over-sweating is known as Hyperhidrosis, and it can be quite serious. Hyperhidrosis makes you sweat, sometimes even when the temperature is low. This decreases your body temperature and greatly increases your chance of hypothermia.
Many of us suffer from excessive sweating. This can cause a few different issues, from extreme temperature decrease to clogged pores. By injecting Botox, we’re effectively tightening the skin around the mouth and cheeks, minimizing the amount of sweat you produce.
2. Put an end to twitching
An eye twitch may sound trivial, but many people suffer from a permanent or long-term muscle spasm that is annoying, to say the least. When the muscle spasm continues for too long, the muscle begins to tighten, which could make it pretty sore.
Botox benefits the muscles of your face by reducing tightness and over-activity. As long as the Botox is active in your face, the eye twitching will be essentially non-existent.
3. Dull the pain of migraines
There are many benefits of Botox, but it isn’t a definite cure for headaches. It can, however, soften the pain quite a bit. Those who suffer from frequent migraines also suffer from nausea and sensitivity to light and sound.
Botox is an FDA approved treatment and preventative measure for migraines due to its relaxation factor. Botox can help prevent migraines and, when injected in appropriate amounts in the right areas, produces results that can last up to three or four months.
4. Stop drooping
A drooping brow, or ptosis as it’s medically referred, has the unfortunate effect of making an individual look upset and/or tired. However, it isn’t an expression, but a weakened muscle that hangs down lower than it should.
A drooping brow can often be treated by changing your diet. However, many cases of eyebrow ptosis are genetic and require a different approach, whether it be dermal fillers or Botox. Injecting Botox into the affected area allows the muscle to straighten out again and make them look tighter.
