Look Good and Feel Even Better with Injectables
Many people assume that treatments with BOTOX® and other fillers can only be used for aesthetic purposes; however, injectables actually offer a variety of different benefits, from smooth skin to improved overall wellbeing.
In order to appreciate the benefits, it helps to first understand what exactly these treatments are and how they differ from one another. BOTOX® works by temporarily blocking signals sent from nerves to muscles (such as the ones that cause wrinkles and crow’s feet with certain facial expressions). As a result, activity in that muscle is reduced. Alternatively, dermal fillers do exactly what you’d think—they fill depleted areas, such as where a lot of collagen has been lost, to restore a healthier appearance. Many fillers also stimulate natural collagen production, which helps to maintain long-term results. Keep in mind that fillers aren’t just for smoothing out wrinkles—they also work well to augment the chin and nose, plump thinning lips, and fill out sunken cheeks. Some fillers can even be used on the hands and chest area.
Of course, the most common benefits of injectables have to do with improving a patient’s appearance. They’re often regarded as a safe alternative to going under the knife, because both dermal fillers and BOTOX® are a safe and effective treatment for plumping lax skin, reducing deeper wrinkles around the forehead and mouth, and rejuvenating the overall appearance of the skin. The other aesthetic benefit of these treatments is that, when done properly, they accentuate your features, not change them—the results will still look natural, so you don’t have to worry about looking “frozen” or made of plastic.
These treatments can do more than just improve your appearance. For instance, BOTOX® injections are an effective, FDA-cleared solution for hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating of the underarms), or excessive sweating, of the underarms. When injected into the area, the solution signals the glands to stop producing sweat, thereby halting the problem for up to a year. The FDA has also approved BOTOX® to help treat chronic migraines in adults.
