What is Botox used for?
‘Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,’ and I think we can all agree that everyone sees different things as attractive. However, regardless of what society deems as beautiful, there are certain features that are universally considered to be outward signs of youth. For example, nobody wants wrinkled skin or dark spots on their face because it makes them seem older than they may be.
An extremely popular way to reduce visible facial wrinkles is Botox treatment, which has been very common in the beauty industry for many years.
One of Botox’s most well-known functions is to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles. However, it is also utilized to treat conditions such as neck spasms (cervical dystonia), excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis), an overactive bladder, and a sluggish eye. Botox injections may also aid in the prevention of chronic headaches.
Is Botox safe for cosmetic use?
Botox has a very safe record. According to a 2005 study, only 36 serious adverse effects linked with cosmetic use were reported to the FDA between 1989 and 2003. And of those, 13 patients had underlying health issues that may have explained their response to the medication.
Botox (Botulinum toxin) injections relax the muscles in your face to smooth out lines and wrinkles, such as crow’s feet and frown lines.
It is a temporary treatment and usually lasts three to four months.
A series of small injections will be administered to the area which stops the muscles from moving and create a smooth, relaxing effect.
