Botox injections have been in the news for a while now for one reason or another. Most times it is when a famous celebrity makes an appearance at a public function suddenly looking much younger than their previous appearance a few weeks or even a few days earlier. At times like these, there is often much speculation about whether or not the person in question has had Botox injections.
Some celebrities are quite open about admitting to it – after all, there’s nothing wrong with it, is there? However, others prefer to be more secretive about their cosmetic procedures and either deny it or just say nothing at all.
So what exactly are Botox injections and what are the cosmetic benefits they offer?
It Makes You Look Younger Without Any Adverse Effects
What makes this procedure so popular around the world is that it makes you look younger and who does not want to look younger? What’s more, you get to look younger without having to undergo any invasive surgery and without any down time either. This win-win situation is what makes Botox the go-to solution for anyone who wants to look younger.
When injected into the skin, the Clostridum Botulinum, which is the primary ingredient in the injection, freezes the muscles that it comes in contact with. This causes the fine lines and wrinkles in the face to appear plumper so that the entire skin looks younger, firmer and wrinkle-free.
It Helps To Lift Drooping Eyebrows
The eyebrows gradually lose their natural arch as we age and they start to appear dull and drooping. This in turn accelerates the formation of frown lines above and below the brows. It also starts to create permanent wrinkles and deep sagging around the brows. All of these can make us look even more aged.
Botox injections can effectively lift drooping eyebrows by plumping up the sagging skin and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
It Reduces Excessive Sweating
Hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating can be a major source of embarrassment and discomfort for some people. While no medical solution has been found for this problem yet, Botox injections have been found to help by relaxing the muscles around the underarms, palms or feet. This restricts the production and secretion of sweat from the sweat glands and curbs this embarrassing problem for up to six months after a single treatment.
The absence of serious or long term side effects of this particular cosmetic treatment is what makes it particularly popular along with the fact that it is much cheaper than many of its other alternatives.
