You know that Botox injections can be used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles around your mouth, at the outside corners of your eyes and along your forehead. But did you know there are other uses for these anti-aging injections in Richardson? Read on to learn more about the different ways that Botox can be helpful.
Small amounts of Botox injected superficially in the skin can curb oil production, thereby helping to reduce breakouts. It can be used anywhere on the face, but is most often applied to the forehead.
Lift the Nose
Funny things might start happening to your nose after the age of 40—you may notice that it begins to sag and become more hooked. Botox could be a non-surgical alternative to a nose job. Injected at the base of the nose, Botox releases the depressor muscle that pulls your nose downward, so your whole face gets a lift.
If your jaw line is looking less defined–that is you’re starting to have jowls that remind you of your dear ol’ granddad—then Botox can help. Injections along the muscles of the jawbone are used to pull the skin up for a more defined appearance.
A Fuller Upper Lip
Fillers aren’t the only way to get a fuller looking pout. Botox in Richardson can be injected in very small amounts along the upper lip border. This causes the lip to roll up and out so it looks plumper. The look is less pronounced than with collagen injections, and because such a small amount of Botox is used, it can also be less expensive.
Botox is also being used to treat certain medical conditions. For example, some migraine sufferers are getting relief with Botox injections. Doctors are not entirely sure how it works, but they believe Botox blocks the pain signals from reaching the brain and that it relaxes muscles in the head so they’re not as sensitive to pain. The injections are given in the forehead, temples and scalp. Botox should only be used when traditional medicines for migraines don’t work.
Just the way Botox works on muscles, it can also have the same affect on nerves. For people that sweat excessively, injections block the message from nerves traveling to your sweat glands. Doctors can inject Botox underarms, palms, scalp, temples and forehead, as well as the soles of the feet to stop excessive sweating for up to six months. The treatment is FDA-approved and can be life-changing for people with pathological sweating.
