Get Your Summer Confidence with Botox
Botox, Juvederm, and Restylane are used by millions of people across the country to achieve a relaxed, more youthful appearance without compromising expression. A perk of a more youthful appearance? A brighter smile and more self-confidence. If you are looking to boost your self-confidence this summer, here’s why you should try Botox.
What is Botox?
Botox is a neurotoxin that works to weaken or paralyze a muscle. When used correctly, Botox can help reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and serve as a treatment option for medical conditions like migraines, muscle spasms, and more.
Botox is a toxin, Medical News Today explains, however, in small doses it provides a number of cosmetic and medical benefits. They explain that it targets the nervous system, which disrupts the nerve signaling processes that stimulate muscle contraction. Due to this, the muscle temporarily experiences paralysis.
According to Mayo Clinic, Botox is most commonly used for:
- Cervical dystonia, where the neck muscles contract involuntarily
- Lazy eye, caused by an imbalance in muscles positioning the eye
- Muscle contractures, like cerebral palsy, which can cause your limbs to pull in toward your center
- Hyperhidrosis, which is excessive sweating no matter the temperature or activity
- Chronic migraine, happening more than 15 times a month
- Bladder dysfunction, like urinary incontinence caused by overactive bladder
- Eye twitching, where the muscles around the eye contract
How Long it Takes and Lasts
Within 3-5 days of receiving the injection, the treated muscles will become relaxed, which causes the skin to lay flat and not wrinkled. The untreated muscles will continue in a normal fashion, which means you can keep expressing yourself like normal. The length of time the injections are effective vary from person to person, but they can last anywhere from 3-6 months.
What are Fillers?
As we age, skin loses collagen and hyaluronic acid. These two work together to give structure and volume to the face, so when you lack them the skin can sag and easily wrinkle. With the help of fillers, which are made from naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, you can restore deficient areas of your face to have a more natural, young appearance.
Botox isn’t all cosmetic, it has some medical benefits too. While you already know what it can do for your skin, dental Botox can help with:
- Headaches from muscle tension in the neck, head, and face
- TMJ headaches
- Teeth grinding and clenching
- Gummy smiles caused by over-retracted upper lips
- Upside-down smiles
- Lip lines
- Puckered chins
Risks of Botox
Fortunately, side effects with Botox are not common. While some people may experience some minor bruising and swelling near the injection site, others may not experience anything at all. Other potential side effects people have experienced include headache, an upset stomach, temporary weakness in muscles near the injection site, and malaise. If you’re concerned about any of these risks, ask us now how the benefits far outweigh them!
How Botox Helps with Confidence
Having confidence is important year-round, but we find that in the summer months it’s especially important. Botox can help you achieve a more youthful appearance. In addition, it also has the ability to help you heal from conditions that make you feel less than your best.
Millions of people use Botox, Juvederm, and Restylane to relax and smooth their facial appearance. The best part? You won’t lose your expression. Having a smile you love not only improves your image and confidence, but it can bring out your full beauty potential.
Developing fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin is a normal part of the aging process. We can’t reverse time, but Botox can make it seem like we aged much more gracefully. You shouldn’t feel bad about yourself because of a few wrinkles. The good news is that you don’t have to. That is just one of the reasons we love Botox, because of what it can do for our overall self confidence!
