Keep reading to learn more about what Botox can do.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox is most commonly used for treating wrinkles, and particularly wrinkles around the eyes and forehead.
Botox works by temporarily weakening the muscles in the target area and this results in a more relaxed look where wrinkles are less prominent. Because it works by weakening the muscles, Botox is usually used to treat wrinkles caused by repeated muscle movements such as furrows in the brow and crows feet around the eyes.
The procedure is quick and non-invasive. In most cases it only takes 10-15 minutes to complete the injections. After the procedure is over, there may be some minor discomfort, but most patients can return to their regular activities later the same day. Results become noticeable a few days after the procedure and they last for three to six months depending on the patient.
The Many Uses of Botox
Although Botox is primarily used for wrinkle treatment, it has many other valuable uses. T FDA has approved the use of Botox for treating chronic migraines, excessive sweating, and eye spasms.
Botox treatments have been clinically shown to reduce the frequency of migraines and minimize headache symptoms.
When used to treat excessive sweating, Botox is injected under the armpits. It blocks signals to sweat glands and provides results that can last for six to seven months.
