Toxin, more commonly known as Botox™️, is a form of neuromodulator called Botulinum Toxin-A, this is a liquid that is injected into muscle tissues to paralyze movement. Those lines you see on your forehead when surprised or angry, or when you smile big and those areas that crinkle beside your eyes are all areas that can be treated with this product!
One of the primary uses of Botox is to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles and fine lines such as frown lines (or 11’s), crow’s feet, and forehead lines. It works by blocking nerve signals that cause muscle contractions, which helps to soften and relax the muscles responsible for creating wrinkles.
Toxin injections can also be used to pinpoint very specific areas of movement that need to be adjusted, such as a gummy smile, lip tucking, or downturned oral commissures (The “permanent scowl” look) or sagging eyebrows.
Botox has been approved for the treatment of chronic migraines in adults. It works by inhibiting the release of neurotransmitters involved in pain signaling, which can help reduce the frequency and intensity of migraines.
Botox injections can be used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in areas such as the underarms, palms, and feet. It helps block the nerve signals that stimulate sweat production.
Muscle Spasms and Disorders
Botox can also be used medically to treat various muscle disorders, such as cervical dystonia (a condition causing neck muscle contractions), strabismus (crossed eyes), and blepharospasm (involuntary eyelid twitching).
Jaw Clenching and Teeth Grinding
Botox injections into the jaw muscles can help alleviate bruxism (teeth grinding) and jaw clenching, which can lead to headaches and dental problems.
Commonly used by clients who are already experiencing these lines, however, the best and most affordable way to treat is start as early as possible!
