People have a pre-conceived notion about botox, why it is used and the benefits that it provides. Even those who have had the treatments may not realise that it has more than just one or two positive aspects. Indeed, botox has many uses, bringing about a plethora of benefits to your physical appearance, mental wellbeing and general overall health, which we will outline here.
Let’s start with the obvious one: botox consists of anti-wrinkle injections which reduce the size and regularity of any visual wrinkles. Wrinkles and their surrounding lines are softened, allowing you to look ten years younger, which impacts upon your mood to make you feel younger in yourself. You will look smoother, healthier, more relaxed, more refreshed and rejuvenated. This is the main benefit of botox, but it’s far from the only one.
Having focused on the cosmetic side of things, let’s think about how it affects you within your mind. Botox injections will help with any chronic migraines that you may be suffering from, with our highly-qualified and experienced therapists applying the treatments to not only handle existing migraines or headaches, but to prevent them from arising in the first place. Botox can also help with muscle spasms; they will reduce the swelling around the affected areas and keep them relaxed to avoid the spasms reoccurring, especially when the injections are placed directly into the problematic muscle groups.
For those who suffer from excessive perspiration, perhaps due to stress or anxiety or for another medical reason, botox can also help with this. Botox reduces the pores of the skin so that they produce less sweat, meaning that over time you will find that you are perspiring less, and with your skin becoming healthier in the process. Finally, botox will help with any tense areas of the body such as the shoulders or the jaw; again, the injections will relax the skin and any surrounding muscles, and by doing this, the injected areas will soften and thus produce less tension.
So, don’t assume that the sole purpose of botox is to aid with wrinkles and the aging process, because as we have outlined, their benefits are great in number, and we’ve only covered a select few of them here.
