3 Benefits of Botox Treatments
What is Botox?
Botox® is an FDA-approved drug known as a neuromodulator, consisting of Botulinum Toxin A. It’s like a shield between a muscle and nerve to prevent your muscle from moving and creating indentations in your skin, like frown wrinkles.
Botox® treatments offer a variety of benefits including preventing wrinkles, minimizing migraines, and minimizing sweating.
Botox® For Wrinkles
How often do you scrunch your eyebrows together when you’re angry or when you’re focused on a tedious task? If you look in the mirror and see mild or deep indentations in your skin, it’s because over time your muscles have forced the skin to bunch together, forming lines between the bulk of the muscle.
A majority of these wrinkles are dynamic. The most common dynamic wrinkles are frown wrinkles between the eyebrows (glabellar region), forehead wrinkles, and crow’s feet, found by the outer corners of the eyes.
Botox® injections are a temporary treatment solution to prevent muscles from moving and creating these dynamic wrinkles. At Coco Med Spa we recommend these treatments as a preventative measure to minimize the chances of wrinkles forming. This anti-aging solution truly gives your skin a healthier, firmer appearance, while also helping stop acne breakouts!
Botox® For Migraines
If you suffer from debilitating migraines that last you 15 days or more a month, for a period of 4 hours per day, you may benefit from Botox® injections. Botox® is the #1 prescribed branded Chronic Migraine treatment.
At Coco Med Spa, we don't inject specifically for migraines, but if you hold tension in areas that can be treated for cosmetic purposes (like the frown and forehead area), you may see an improvement in your headaches when those areas are treated.
As a roadblock to these pain signals, you no longer feel your migraines or headaches as badly.
Botox® For Sweating
If you have overactive sweat glands or suffer from hyperhidrosis, Botox® injections may be a treatment you could benefit from.
When our bodies overheat, we sweat to cool it off. However, if you have hyperhidrosis, you may sweat more often.
At Coco Med Spa, we inject Botox® into the armpits and the palms, if necessary. Botox® prevents your nerves from triggering your sweat glands, specifically at the site of injection.
Botox® is a highly effective treatment for overactive sweat glands. If you believe you could benefit from this treatment, reach out to our experts and ask for a free consultation. Check out our Botox® FAQ’s page for more information or read more about our Botox® services here.
