Botox® has been one of the most popular cosmetic treatments for over two decades now and millions of people have benefitted from it greatly.
Although it is FDA-approved to soften the look of dynamic wrinkles, it is also pretty common to receive Botox® for other aesthetic concerns such as a gummy smile and excessive underarm sweating.
Here are 5 ways Botox® can help ‘ellevate’ your natural beauty:
1. Botox® Can Help Soften The Look Of Existing Dynamic Wrinkles
Botox® is FDA-approved to reduce the appearance of mild to moderate dynamic wrinkles, such as:
- Crow’s feet – The lines that spread out from the outer corner of your eyes
- Forehead lines – Horizontal wrinkles on your forehead
- Frown lines – Vertical lines between your brows, aka glabellar lines or ‘11’ lines
It can help smooth out your skin in the treated areas giving your skin a youthful appearance.
2. Botox® Can Prevent Or Delay The Formation Of New Wrinkles
You can also receive Botox® as a preventative treatment before you see any lines or wrinkles on your face. Preventative Botox® can prevent or delay the formation of new wrinkles in the treated areas, keeping common signs of aging from appearing too soon.
Preventative Botox® is considered safe and effective and best suited for people who are in their late 20’s or early 30’s.
3. Botox® Can Help Improve Your Gummy Smile
A gummy smile is when too much of your gums appear every time you smile. Botox® can help address this problem rather effectively by relaxing the muscles between your nose and the upper lip, allowing it to cover more of your gums so that you can smile with confidence.
4. Botox® Can Reduce Excessive Underarm Sweating
Excessive underarm sweating, also known as axillary hyperhidrosis, affects 2-3% of the population in the U.S. alone. Since you can’t control it, it can be a bit embarrassing and annoying to deal with it, especially when you’re out with people.
Luckily, Botox® can help you get rid of underarm sweating so you can regain your confidence effectively. It works by blocking the nerve signals to sweat glands in your underarms, preventing them from producing too much sweat.
5. A Botox® ‘Lip Flip’ Can Enhance Your Lips
Looking for a subtle way to enhance your pout? A Botox Lip Flip could be just what you need.
During the procedure, very few units of Botox® are injected into specific points slightly above your upper lip. This relaxes the muscles present in the treated area, causing your lip to slightly curl upward (hence the name Botox ‘lip flip’). As a result, they appear slightly more voluminous.
To conclude, Botox® is a minimally invasive, quick, and virtually painless treatment that can help you put your best face forward with minimal effort. However, to get subtle and natural-looking results, always opt for a well-trained and certified injector.
