BOTOX(r), also referred to as onabotulinumtoxinA, is one of the most popular types of injectable treatments. It is used to smooth out wrinkles and provide patients with a more youthful appearance. Usually, it is used when a patient has severe lines and wrinkles but is in good overall health. While dermal fillers are used to add volume to the face, BOTOX(r) works at the muscular level to prevent wrinkles from forming.
One of the most common cosmetic benefits of BOTOX(r) is that it minimizes the appearance of lines and wrinkles. After treatment, the wrinkles and fine lines of a person’s face are smoothed, leaving the individual with a younger appearance. BOTOX(r) works by freezing the muscle under the skin. When the muscle is frozen, it cannot contract, and therefore cannot create wrinkles. The effects of BOTOX(r) are temporary and must be repeated in order to main results. Over time, however, the treated muscles can be “trained” to remain in this frozen state, so you need less treatment.
Most commonly, BOTOX(r) works on the lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. These “dynamic wrinkles” – colloquially referred to as crow’s feet and laugh lines – are common signs of aging. While the aging process is unavoidable, BOTOX(r) can help treat the signs and symptoms.
There are also additional, lesser-known advantages of BOTOX(r). It can help to ease the symptoms of migraines, particularly the pain of the headaches. It can also help to ease pain from arthritis and reduce excessive sweat or hyperhidrosis. Finally, BOTOX(r) has also been discovered to provide relief to men who have an enlarged prostate in reducing their symptoms.
While BOTOX(r) is a commonly used treatment, it’s important to only receive treatment from a medical professional. If not administered properly, BOTOX(r) can have adverse side effects. At Breeze Laser Center, our team offers safe, comfortable and effective treatment options.
