We see it in the celebrity gossip tabloids all the time Botox. It s so popular it s become mainstream. It seems like you see it everywhere and even wonder if maybe people you know may be getting treatments. There are so many benefits to Botox, it s easy to see why. It can make you look more youthful and even more friendly and confident. Plus it s so easy to get treatments. It s relatively inexpensive, fast, easy and involves very little pain. There is plenty most of us know about Botox, but here are some little know facts about our favorite beauty treatment.

Do you know why Botox is so well accepted and trusted? Botox has been in heavy use in the cosmetic industry for about twenty years now. It is FDA approved specifically for the purpose of reducing lines and wrinkles. Also, the effects are not permanent. The effects dissipate over time leaving you the same as you were before the treatment.

Many people aren t even aware of how Botox works. They know it gets rid of wrinkles, but aren t exactly sure how. Botox works by disrupting how much of a neurotransmitter is produced. A neurotransmitter is what handles communication between nerves and muscles. Since this communication is interrupted, the muscle relaxes. This gives the appearance of smoother, less wrinkled, younger looking skin.


Another little known fact about Botox is that it can actually prevent wrinkles from forming. Because of the way Botox works it suppresses the muscle contractions we make to our faces that cause those lines of stress like crow s feet and lines on our forehead. We make much of our own wrinkles by scrunching our eyebrows together when we re stressed or angry, squinting our eyes at the sun or glare, or raising our eyebrows in a form of expression. When these muscle contractions are reduced, so is the production of those wrinkles.

Did you know that Botox is used for purposes besides beauty treatments? There is a whole host of medical disorders that may be effectively treated by Botox. For example, Botox is used to treat blepharospasm, a disorder that causes the eyes to twitch uncontrollably. It is also used to treat migraines, excessive sweating, muscle spasms, chronic back pain, jaw tension and more. In fact, the treatment of medical conditions was the primary usage of Botox when it was first created.

Whether you love it or hate it, or are simply intrigued by it, Botox is more than just a cosmetic treatment for the rich, vain and self absorbed. It is becoming more and more accepted as people want to match their outward appearance with how they feel inside. Also, as you can see, Botox offers a wide variety of medical benefits that can t be ignored. Maybe you will find that Botox could be right for you.
