The Many Uses Of Botox
Botox is one of the world’s most popular cosmetic injectable, yet so many of us still do not know the full benefits that the treatment can provide. Botox is one of the most versatile injectables on the market, and can provide patients with an array of results. To explain more about the many uses of Botox, we called on the expertise of Dr. Thevendra of APSARAS Clinic.
What is Botox?
As many of us know, Botox is a cosmetic injectable that is primarily used to combat the signs of ageing within the skin. The injectable provides patients with an array of cosmetic benefits by restricting the mobility of the facial muscles. Freezing the muscles can have a range of benefits, from preventing the formation of lines and wrinkles to stopping excessive perspiration.
Botox for anti-ageing
The most common use for Botox is non-surgical facial rejuvenation. Botox has long been the go-to non-surgical treatment for celebrities and members of the public alike to treat the signs of ageing.
Botox is used to effectively freeze the facial muscles in order to prevent further creasing of the skin,. This is an effective solution to the signs of ageing because it is due to a combination overuse of the facial muscles and a reduction in collagen levels that causes wrinkles to form; restricting the facial muscles eradicates one of the contributing factors, therefore dramatically reducing the chance of wrinkles forming.
“Botox is most known for being a non-surgical anti-ageing treatment, and is an extremely successful form of treatment. Patients can gain not only an improvement to their already present signs of ageing, but also prevent the formation of further wrinkles through the use of Botox. This is a huge positive to Botox use for anti-ageing purposes as it means patients can gain the short term improvements that they are looking for, whilst being provided with a way to preserve their youthful skin in the long term,” explained Dr. Thevendra.
Botox for hyperhidrosis
A use of Botox that many people are still not aware of is using the cosmetic injectable as an anti-sweat treatment. Hyperhidrosis is an issue that millions of people suffer with worldwide, and can affect sufferers at various levels and locations on the body.
Botox can provide patients with an effective solution against excess sweating by effectively blocking the sweat glands that it is injected into. This prevents the sweat from passing through the glands, giving patients control over their perspiration.
“The great thing about using Botox as a hyperhidrosis treatment is that the injectable nature of Botox means patients can treat a wide range of body parts. Common sites of treatment include the palms of the hands and the armpits. However, there are a growing number of patients using the injectable to combat scalp perspiration. This can help patients control oil buildup and sweat from their scalp that can flat, greasy or frizzy hair,” said Dr. Thevendra.
Botox for medical purposes
Although Botox is usually used for cosmetic purposes it also has uses for the medical profession too. Botox can be used to combat a number of medical issues, from an overactive bladder to muscle spasms, and even correcting eye conditions.
“Botox is a truly versatile injectable, and this is reflected by the amount of medical and cosmetic uses it has. Muscle relaxing injectables can improve patient’s lives in so many ways. Whether that is by reducing the embarrassment that hyperhidrosis can cause, correcting eye disorders or banishing lines and wrinkles, Botox is a great example of a multi-purpose modern cosmetic treatment,” Dr. Thevendra concluded.
If Botox treatment is something the interests you, it is important that you conduct thorough research before making the decision to undergo treatment. This means not only understanding the risks and benefits involved with treatment, but also who is the right cosmetic professional to perform it. As Botox is such a popular form of cosmetic treatment many practitioners now offer it, and although this can be a great thing for patients as it allows them to shop around for the right practitioner, it also means many less reputable practitioners now offer the treatment. In order to prevent a negative experience, patients should conduct extensive research into treatment.
