Botox is one of the most common and popular aesthetic treatments in America, and for good reason. Best known for its use to reduce and eliminate wrinkles, Botox also plays an important role in resolving health issues ranging from excessive sweating to overactive bladder disorders.
If you are experiencing problems with the appearance of your eyes and the skin surrounding your eyes, Botox could be the solution you need.
More About Botox
Botox is considered a therapeutic muscle relaxer because it works to decrease the function of motor nerve endings. It is derived from Botulinum Toxin Type A, also known as Clostridium Botulinum, which blocks the release of electrical messages being sent to the muscles to instruct them to contract and move. Without receiving these messages, the targeted muscles become relaxed, giving the skin time to reverse the wrinkles that were created with constant muscle contractions.
It’s important to note that Botox isn’t a cure. The injections last between three and six months, after which time another injection is needed to continue the benefits. However, it’s always possible to return for another injection, and usually less Botox is needed to maintain the results.
Potential Botox Uses Around the Eyes
The “No Knife Eye Lift” using Botox has become very popular in the last few years. Injections of Botox right around the eyes can prevent your muscles from squinting, leading to relief of crow’s feet wrinkles and deep lines.
Botox can also help minimize drooping and hooded eyelids caused by thin and sagging eyelids. By injecting the muscles around the eyes with Botox, the muscles responsible for squinting will relax and, in turn, lift heavy eyelids to open your eyes wider and help you look younger and more energetic.
Botox has been used for years, making it a safe and reliable method of achieving youth and enhanced beauty for anybody!
