The Top 4 Benefits of Botox

Botox is a popular skin treatment with both males and females. If you are curious about this cosmetic procedure or are a bit unsure whether this treatment is for you, here are the top 4 benefits of Botox.

1.       Non-Surgical Procedure

The treatment of Botox is a non-surgical procedure; there is no incision, there are no stitches and therefore no scarring. Botox is a great alternative procedure to plastic surgery that as it isn’t invasive and does not include a hospital visit. Botox is given to patients with injections, which means a lesser chance of complication and much less disruption to your life.

2.       Anti-Ageing Treatment

Everyone looks in the mirror and wishes that they had a few less wrinkles and wishes their lines away. Botox works to relax facial muscles resulting in smoother skin and the reduced appearance of wrinkles. The treatment of Botox allows you to look as young as you feel – often resulting in enhanced confidence.

3.       It’s Temporary

Should you decide that you don’t like the results of your treatment, you will be happy to know that the results are temporary; you are not committed to the change for the rest of your life, unlike cosmetic surgery. Botox lasts for around 6 months, so if you do love the results as many do, you will only need treatments around twice a year – of course this can alter depending on the individual.

4.        Migraine Treatment

Botox not only has aesthetic benefits, but can also be used as an effective treatment of migraines. Since 2010 Botox has been a specifically licensed as a treatment of chronic migraines. Nobody really knows exactly how this treatment banishes migraines, although many medical experts believe that it is the botulinum toxin included in botox that reduces the pain by releasing peripheral nocicptive neurotransmitters that may lead to causing migraines.

You should be aware that Botox often causes minor and temporary side effects such as brusing and swelling, however this does not take long to subside.
