Most people think Botox is just for erasing lines on the brow, but it has so many more uses that can improve both appearance and quality of life. While removing those brow lines that appear between the eyebrows and on the forehead is one of the applications of Botox, it can also be used for lifting and relaxing the face, treating migraines and much more. We are pleased to offer Botox treatments at AuraSpa, giving our patients access to one of the most popular injectables on the market.
Botox is known as a neuromodulator, which refers to interfering with the nerve messages sent from the brain to the muscles. When you concentrate or frown, your eyebrows come together and the forehead wrinkles. Over time, this movement creates permanent lines on the brow, which is one of the first areas Botox was approved by the FDA to treat. By carefully placing injections of Botox, the message to the muscles to contract are blocked, smoothing away those lines, with results that last for 3-6 months.
Botox Treatment Options
The brow and other wrinkle-prone areas are common uses for Botox. However, as a neuromodulator, it can benefit many other issues where relaxing a muscle is needed for results. Cosmetically, it can be used to relax muscles around the eyes to reduce drooping or sagging. It can also be used above the top lip to reduce the appearance of a “gummy” smile. Other treatment options for Botox include reducing migraines and stopping unwanted muscle movements for some cases of Bell’s Palsy.
Millions of Botox treatments are given each year in the U.S. It has been the most used cosmetic treatment for many years due to its striking results and safety.
