Botox® is best known for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles. Yet there are multiple ways these injections can improve your quality of life. Here are five unique cosmetic uses for Botox injections.
The ideal feminine face is typically defined by an elongated oval shape. Clenched jaw muscles can create a square-shaped appearance, which can be considered more masculine. Botox relaxes the muscles to help slim the jaws for a slimmer look.
Some individuals may show their gums as they talk, laugh and smile. This is caused by the upper lip pulling up too far. Botox can help relax the lip to reduce a gummy smile. It can take a few days for Botox to take effect after an injection to treat this condition. Results can last for up to six months.
Overactive sweat glands can be a source of embarrassment, especially during warmer months. Deodorants and antiperspirants are often ineffective in keeping underarms dry. Botox can temporarily paralyze overactive sweat glands to keep problem areas dry.
As you age, the tendons that stretch between your shoulders and jaw can form a stringy appearance. As the skin thins, neck muscles can become more noticeable. Botox can target the platysmal bands along the neck to make them less obvious.
Botox injections can help relieve migraines by relaxing nerves and muscle tension. The severity and frequency of migraines can be drastically reduced. This solution is ideal for individuals who have tried other migraine treatments and found them ineffective.
