How Does Botox® Work?

Botox® is a neuromodulator that essentially stops nerves from talking to the affected muscle. The unique treatment method makes Botox® beneficial for a variety of concerns. Patients can typically see results in as little as several days with an optimal outcome lasting several months or more. Let’s take a look at a few ways you may be able to take advantage of Botox® treatments.

#1: Wrinkle Reduction

One of the most obvious conditions Botox® can fix is visible signs of aging including wrinkles. Botox® is most effective for deep dynamic wrinkles caused by repetitive facial movements. Patients can address a variety of lines and wrinkles including crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and even horizontal neck bands.

#2: Sculpt the Lower Face

More and more patients are beginning to use Botox® on the lower portion of the face to improve their overall profile. Over time, Botox® actually works to shrink muscles in the chin and jawline for a more contoured appearance. Botox® is also effective for patients looking for a preventative solution to combat genetics.

#3: Thwart Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating (Hyperhidrosis) is a common condition among both men and women. Botox® stops overactive sweat glands from secreting unwanted sweat. Patients can safely minimize sweating on the face, forehead, palms, underarms, and soles of the feet. Botox® treatments for excessive sweating can last upwards of 6-months.

#4: Combat Eye Dysfunctions

Botox® is highly effective for treating a variety of eye dysfunctions. By slowing nerve-muscle communication, Botox® can help with everything from an overly lazy eye to unwanted twitching. Restore optimal eye health for 4-6 months with Botox® treatments.

#5: Tame Chronic Migraines

Botox® is FDA-approved to treat migraines by relieving pressure caused by muscle contractions. Reduce migraine inducing symptoms such as nausea as well as sensitivity to light and sound in just 1-2 weeks after treatment. Typically, the more often a patient has frequent headaches, they better they do with Botox® treatments.

Is Botox® Right for You?

Aside from the above-mentioned conditions, Botox® has a wide range of off-label functional and aesthetic uses. It’s always a good idea to choose a skilled provider who is experienced with the nuances of the product to avoid a less than ideal outcome. At the time of your initial consultation, Board-certified Plastic surgeon Dr. Correa will assess your concerns and determine if Botox® is right for you.
