Botox is a safe, effective anti-aging treatment that can be performed by a cosmetic dermatologist. Unlike cosmetic surgery, Botox injections have a short recovery period, few side effects, and quick results. Here are just a few of the many advantages of Botox that may help you decide whether to seek the treatment.
One of the surprising side effects of Botox injections is that they can relieve you of painful migraine headaches. Regular Botox injections in the head, face, and neck have proven to prevent migraine occurrences in chronic sufferers. The effects of Botox last for about 3 months, so this quick, convenient treatment is also long-lasting. It also has far fewer side effects than many migraine medications.
Botox injections can help diminish or erase scars. Botox injections, combined with dermal fillers, can erase acne scars and pock marks. Botox also prevents larger scars from becoming bigger. Doctors have even begun using Botox for scar management and preventing scarring after surgery, as the drug will prevent the skin from pulling apart at incision sites. Wide scars result from muscle movements pulling the skin apart during the healing phase. For facial wounds, a Botox injection can temporarily paralyze the muscles that may cause the movement that would result in a larger scar.
The most common use for Botox injections is to reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles on the face and neck. Botox temporarily paralyzes the facial muscles whose movement causes wrinkles and lines. The injection takes only seconds, and results can be seen after just three days. You won’t need another treatment for three months.
