WHAT IS BOTOX?
Botox is a naturally occurring substance that helps to diminish the look of wrinkles and fine lines on your face and neck. Botox is a muscle relaxer! Most patients use Botox for problem areas like the forehead, upper eyelids, neck, and the areas around the brow. Botox comes in 50 unit and 100 unit bottles. A unit is a measurement used to determine the amount of Botox given, for instance, some treatment areas need only 5 units while others may use 20! Botox also helps with migraines, in a twelve-month study Botox injected into various spots on the head and neck of participants resulted in 70% of enrolled patients seeing a more than 50% decrease in their number of headaches.
Over the last decade, Botox has become known for helping to stop excessive sweating. It is typically injected under the arms, actually blocking the message from sweat glands to secrete sweat. These injections have been shown to decrease sweating by 82-87%.
Botox injections have also been shown to slim the appearance of a “square face” by concentrating injections in the Masseter Muscle (the muscle around the jawline). With proper administration, this muscle will relax and actually give the face a narrower appearance. This has been found to be particularly effective for people who clench and grind their teeth at night.
It’s also virtually painless! Most people report no pain at all with Botox injections. There is no numbing medicine administered for these injections because none is needed. The needle used for Botox is much thinner than the average needle such as those used to draw blood. Botox is one of the safest cosmetic treatments available. Long-term study results have shown that 853 treatment sessions with Botox over a 9 year period resulted in no side-effects for 99% of participating patients. The only side effects that were reported were temporary and considered to be minor such as headaches and bruising.
What are the Benefits of Botox?
- Enhanced Appearance
The greatest benefit for most people who have Botox is the improvement it makes to their appearance. Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines can improve self confidence and reduce the appearance of aging amazingly!
- Long Term Results
Studies have shown that after two years of denervation, muscles atrophy; which means they get smaller and weaker. The muscles that are causing your lines, if continuously treated with Botox for two years, could also atrophy and not be as likely to create wrinkles! As an added bonus, If lines are treated with Botox on a regular basis, they tend to remain more superficial. Once the lines are “carved” into the skin, then relaxing the muscles with Botox will not erase all of the lines, and you may need Restylane, laser resurfacing, or other treatments down the road.
- No Downtime
Many patients get Botox injections before work, during their lunch hour, or after work and return to their normal routine with no symptoms of having been treated.
- No Side Effects
Allergic reactions and side-effects are extremely rare when it comes to Botox! It’s important for a potential client to discuss their known allergies, or medication, at the initial Juvly free facial assessment to ensure your Master Provider chooses the treatment for you. Long-term study results have shown that Botox resulted in no side-effects for 99% of participating patients. The only side effects that were reported were temporary and considered to be minor such as headaches and bruising.
- Everyone can benefit from Botox!
Botox isn’t just for wrinkles! Anyone who shows signs of aging, has migraine headaches, or experiences excessive sweating is a good candidate for Botox.
