10 Benefits of Botox Injections

Botox is one of the most common non-surgical treatments for cosmetic purposes. It is injected into muscles to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines), on the forehead, and around the eyes. Botox relaxes the tiny facial muscles linked to expression and prevents them from contracting. After a Botox procedure, the overlying skin remains silky and unwrinkled for 3 to 4 months following treatment. Here are just a few of the benefits of treatment with Botox Cosmetic.

  1. Reduces Wrinkles

Botox treatment can smooth out the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. If you have crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, or “parentheses” between your eyes, those issues can be addressed with Botox. This helps you to have a more youthful look and refreshed facial skin.

  1. Prevents New Wrinkles

One benefit of Botox many people don’t know about is that it can help prevent new wrinkles. This happens because of its ability to relax the facial muscles temporarily. With regular Botox treatments, you can continue to keep new wrinkles at bay. Many younger patients will choose to be treated with Botox as a preventative measure to keep wrinkles from forming in the first place.

  1. Gives You an Upper Lip Lift

You can use Botox injections into the muscles around your mouth to relax them. This gives you a slight upper lip lift, without the use of lip filler. Botox above the upper lip can also get rid of a “gummy smile” by relaxing the muscles that cause the upper lip to retract, exposing too much of the gums.

  1. Gives You a Brow Lift

Botox can give you a subtle brow lift. This is done with injections under the eyebrow to allow the muscle to relax. The result is a slight brow lift and a beautiful, fresher appearance that helps your eyes pop.

  1. Treats Jaw Problems

Some people have jaw problems like TMJ or grind their teeth while asleep. These conditions can cause pain and discomfort and lead to chipped, cracked, or broken teeth. Botox can help by relaxing the muscles around the mouth, easing the symptoms of those disorders.

  1. No Downtime

Finally, another benefit of Botox treatment is that there’s no downtime, regardless of why you get it. You can come in for injections and resume your normal activities immediately after. We do recommend waiting 24 hours before exercise or any strenuous activity and recommend patients not lay down immediately following treatment.
