How do Botox injections work?
The botulinum toxin blocks signals between the nerve cells and muscles. Without instructions from the brain telling them to contract, the muscles slacken. The Botox injection is just enough to prevent the targeted muscle from contracting.
In the instance of wrinkles and fine lines, your View Beautiful Wellness provider injects Botox serum into the soft tissues where it blocks signals to and from the muscles, allowing them to relax completely. The skin over the injected area tightens, giving it a smooth appearance. Fine lines and wrinkles begin to fade, leaving behind a more youthful appearance. The results of Botox injections last four to six months depending on the original health of your skin.
What are other uses for Botox?
Since the late 1980’s, doctors have used Botulinum Toxin A — brand name Botox — for cosmetic purposes. Since then, the medical community has used it with no significant side effects, and it involves little recovery time. It’s considered a very safe treatment.
Botox Cosmetic is more than a solution for wrinkles and lines: It allows people to age gracefully while looking their best. It can treat cosmetic concerns that traditional plastic surgery can’t correct.
Aside from cosmetic purposes, Botox can be:
• An effective part of various pain-management plans
• Used to help eliminate joint pain associated with chronic illness
• Used to ease the pain and discomfort of migraine headaches
We can also use Botox to treat:
• Rapid eye blinking
• Excessive sweating
• Crossed eyes
• Severe neck and shoulder muscle spasms
These are just a few of the many medical conditions for which View Beautiful Wellness uses the serum. Many of our patients using Botox for cosmetic purposes also report a dramatic decrease in the frequency and duration of their headaches, including migraines and tension headaches.
Are Botox injections and dermal fillers the same?
Botox injections and dermal fillers aren’t the same. While the results they produce are similar, the way each one works is dramatically different. Botox targets the signals between your muscles and nerves, while dermal fillers stimulate your body to produce more of the fibers that maintain the integrity of your skin and tissues. Because dermal fillers provide actual support to the tissues, the results of the procedure last much longer than traditional Botox therapy.
