We all are familiar with the wrinkle-free and anti-aging perks of Botox, otherwise known as botulinum toxin; however, Botox has a variety of other benefits for those who get it done. One small Botox injection has the power to weaken and paralyze muscles in the face. Often used in small amounts to reduce wrinkles and fine lines on the face are now being seen to treat many other conditions. We can thank Botox’s ability to weaken muscles for its many uses. This form of treatment works by playing a role in the nervous system, once injected it disrupts the nerve signaling process that alerts your body to move the muscles. When this happens, your body will experience weakened and paralyzed facial muscles. We see the nerves in the nervous system not being able to alert the body to move once injected. Thus, the proper chemicals that allow for movement cannot be released, allowing for the Botox to work its magic on wrinkles and conditions such as excessive sweating. After breaking down the science behind the procedure we have found that many people begin to understand it and feel much more understanding of why people get it. But for those who are legitimately considering Botox, Delray Beach Plastic Surgery is here for you.
- Excessive Sweating
Excessive sweating, otherwise known as hyperhidrosis, can be a hard condition to live with, especially living down here in the sunshine state. Sweating a lot can have a large impact on some people’s self-esteem, especially those who sweat in areas that are noticeable such as the forehead or the underarm. Luckily Botox works its magic for sweat reduction and can truly make some feel more confident in their skin. Sweating a lot is something all of us South Florida residents can relate to. We all know it when we are sweating and thinking of how noticeable it is to others has the power to make us nervous and sometimes sweat, even more, it’s absolutely the worst. With Botox, this does not need to be an issue anymore. The Botox treatment will act as a shield against your sweat glands and your exterior making excessive sweating no longer an issue for you.
Migraines are by far one of the most painful conditions that anyone can have. This type of pain, although seemingly no big deal, can be a huge deal. Especially for those who find themselves getting them chronically. Sometimes these migraines mean bed rest for an entire day and plenty of vomiting. The effects of these can impact everyone differently and range in severity. At Delray Beach Plastic Surgery our hearts go out to those who suffer from these painful occurrences. While our treatment recommendation of Botox may not get rid of all of the pain, it will surely help some of it and some of the migraine symptoms. This will at least give the ability to get out of bed and tackle the day, unlike a migraine before Botox.
- Eye Twitches
This is one of the more unknown reasons for getting Botox; however, Botox is extremely effective when treating eye twitches. It’s safe to say that this kind of treatment for anything eye-related sounds kind of funky, but it treats this condition better than any other. For those who do not experience eye twitches, they can be very annoying to live with. You may think this is something to brush off, but these twitches last a lot longer than what the average person thinks. Sometimes the twitch may be short-lived but happening at a quick pace and other times it can be twitching every couple of minutes for hours on end, either way, it can drastically interfere with the patient’s life. They also can impact the patient’s vision, a very dangerous situation in some instances.
