What is Botox?
Before we go any further, let’s first answer the question: What is Botox?
Botox is a type of minimally-invasive injection used to counter wrinkles. Adults typically use this surgery to smooth out their face and give themselves a much more youthful and healthier appearance. Botox is also sometimes used to help treat problems including:
- Excessive sweating
- Neck spasms
- Lazy eye
- Overactive bladder
- Chronic migraines
Botox injections can reduce the appearance of wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing muscle activity. They work to weaken or paralyze certain muscles, or they block certain nerves, which helps you get rid of any unwanted lines on your face.
How long does Botox last?
The effects of this procedure typically last about three to twelve months, although it can differ from person to person and treatment to treatment. Talk to your doctor or one of our team members here at Pacifico Plastic Surgery to find out if you would be a good candidate for this type of surgery.
How can you benefit from Botox?
Botox is normally used by people who are wishing to reduce the appearance of their wrinkles, but the procedure can also be used for various other issues. Here are the potential benefits of Botox:
- Erase the signs of aging – Known as the anti-aging treatment; Botox can erase the signs of aging on your face by removing wrinkles.
- Reduce migraine headaches – If you frequently have to deal with migraine headaches, then you may want to ask your doctor about Botox. Studies have shown the procedure to reduce pain from migraines.
- Rid excess sweating – It has also been found that Botox injections are effective in stopping the production of sweat by inhibiting the chemical called acetylcholine, which stimulates the sweat glands.
- Ease aches in muscles – If you’re dealing with aches and pains, arthritis or muscle spasms, consider getting Botox surgery. It temporarily paralyzes muscles, which helps relieve unwanted aches and spasms.
