What Can Botox Treat Besides Wrinkles?
When it comes to halting the dreaded aging process, many of us are still searching for that elusive fountain of youth. Most turn to technological advancements like lasers and injectables to achieve younger-looking skin but did you know the beloved Botox can treat other issues besides wrinkles? Impact Medical Rejuvenation of Tampa shares the scoop on three things that this wizard of injectables can do for you.
Create a softer chin and jawline. If you wake up to an aching jaw from overnight grinding or clenching, Botox may be able to help. Over time, grinding your teeth can widen the jawline. When injected into the area, Botox can both shrink and narrow the jawline. This treatment lasts about a year, helps alleviate pain and soreness, and can make your cheeks appear more lifted.
Ease migraines. In this procedure, Botox is injected into the forehead, temples, and scalp. Though it’s not fully understood how the injectable works for migraine relief, the theory is that it blocks pain signals from being sent to the brain and thus, relaxes the head muscles. Doctors suggest that this is not a blanket treatment for all migraine sufferers and recommend it for patients that have frequent attacks that aren’t improving with traditional medications.
Lift and smooth. A bit on the nose (pun intended) but Botox can do wonders in the facial area. Patients can achieve a temporary facelift by receiving injections in the jaw, tip of the nose, and wrinkles around the eyes. Others interested in revamping the nasal area might consider using Botox to lift the nose and release the depressor muscles that will give the whole face a fuller appearance.
