When most people think about BOTOX®, they think about people using it to treat wrinkles and look younger. And while it is true that it has been able to help individuals enjoy a happier and more youthful look, the product can be used for a wide variety of medical purposes as well.
Erase Dynamic Wrinkles
In order to understand how this product is able to improve a person’s appearance, you need to understand why wrinkles form on the face as a person gets older. First, both static wrinkles and dynamic wrinkles appear as a person ages. Static wrinkles are typically the result of a person losing facial volume. Just think of the way a person’s cheeks start to look hollow as they get older. This issue is able to be easily addressed with a dermal filler treatment.
Dynamic wrinkles appear because of the way the skin folds and creases as a person’s muscles contract when they make facial expressions. BOTOX® injections are able to effectively erase or minimize light to moderate dynamic wrinkles and can soften more severe dynamic wrinkles. If you are interested in treating dynamic wrinkles, this is the best way to go. We are confident when we say this because it actually gets to the root of the problem. Topical creams promise to erase wrinkles, but they are not able to do so because they cannot change the movement of the muscles. After these injections are given, the muscles have the opportunity to relax, which allows the folds in the skin to soften.
More and more individuals are seeing the benefits that come from using this product in order to prevent dynamic wrinkles. Just think of how crow’s feet form at the outer corners of the eyes. When a person smiles or squints, the muscles in these areas contract. If you are able to reduce the strength of the contractions before crow’s feet form, you can prevent them. You may not be able to stop them from ever forming, but you will definitely be able to enjoy a youthful appearance for a longer period of time. Many younger individuals begin using this product in order to accomplish this goal.
Treating Medical Conditions with BOTOX®
First, a brief history. The first time this product was ever used for a medical purpose was back in the year 1981. It was used to help individuals who had crossed eyes. It also has other uses.
For example, are you dealing with excessive sweating and body odor? This can be an embarrassing problem. In fact, it can cause a person to withdraw from normal social situations. BOTOX® injections have proven to be helpful for individuals in these circumstances. It is able to stop the muscles from squeezing the sweat glands with the same intensity. Since the body is not able to act in the same way it normally would, excessive sweating and body odor are reduced. This does not mean that a person will not be able to sweat normally in other areas. So a person can still regulate their body temperature in a healthy way.
What many people don’t know is that this product is extremely versatile. In fact, BOTOX® can even be used to treat muscle spasms and other medical conditions. It’s truly an amazing treatment that has been helping people from various walks of life achieve the results they desire.
