BOTOX® Cosmetic is a medical treatment approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. Montclair Rejuvenation Center uses the procedure to treat various disorders, including facial wrinkles and sagging skin. Still, it is most commonly known for its ability to enhance the appearance of facial features.
Botox works by blocking signals sent from nerves to muscles, which relaxes them. The process makes the area look smooth and relaxed. It is a safe treatment option that can reduce signs of aging without surgery or downtime. It has also been shown to improve the quality of life for many patients who suffer from muscle spasms caused by certain medical conditions or injuries.
If you are thinking about getting Botox, you may wonder why you should. After all, the procedure costs money. Main reasons to consider Botox may include:
It improves your skin tone.
Botox has been shown to increase skin tone in those with sallow complexions, making it an excellent cosmetic treatment for those with darker skin tones. This procedure also benefits in reducing the look of dark circles under the eyes. It creates a more even complexion giving a healthy glow to the skin while reducing puffiness under the eyes, which can make us look tired or ill.
It can help you look younger.
Botox is an FDA-approved medicine that relaxes the muscles around your eyes and forehead. It makes your muscles appear less wrinkled and more youthful. The treatment also slows collagen production in these areas, which helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The injection is painless and takes only a few minutes, so it is easy to get on with your day after the treatment.
It can smooth out frown lines.
Another benefit of Botox is that it can smoothen out frown lines around the mouth or forehead, giving you a more relaxed overall appearance. You may notice that this impacts other people, too – they tend to comment on how much better you look.
It can help with forehead lines.
Botox can also treat forehead lines, frown lines around the mouth area, and crow feet around your eyes. Muscle contractions cause these under your skin that pulls at your facial features, causing wrinkles, deepening existing ones, and fine lines around your eyes and mouth region (crow’s feet).
It may even help prevent migraines.
Botox is a cosmetic treatment that can help you look and feel your best. However, it is not just for decorative purposes. It could also help prevent migraines.
Migraine headaches are a common health problem. They are characterized by severe pain on one side of the head and may be accompanied by nausea and vomiting. Migraine attacks can last from four hours to several days and can be painful enough to require medicine or surgery.
The FDA has approved Botox as a prophylactic migraine treatment in patients who suffer from chronic migraine or cluster headaches, tension-type headaches that occur with recurring periods of pain. The drug works by blocking nerve impulses in the first part of your trigeminal nerve, which connects your brain to your face, neck, and scalp muscles. The treatment reduces the release of chemicals that cause headaches in these areas and other parts of your body like the arms, shoulders, and jaw.
BOTOX® cosmetics can improve the appearance of moderate to severe drooping eyelids and moderate to harsh frown lines between your eyebrows to enhance your appearance.
