Botox has been a mainstay on the cosmetic market for decades now. It was the first neuromodulator to be FDA approved for treating facial wrinkles. 

But Botox isn’t just about age any more! At Southlake Plastic Surgery we’re able to use Botox to treat more than just wrinkles.

Our favorite classic benefits of Botox

These are the reasons why Botox is a staple cosmetic injectable and is a favorite for many of our patients. 

It works

The reason Botox is a household name is because the results are effective. Botox can be used on its own or in combination with other products like Sculptra to provide a unique treatment for any patient.

It’s non-invasive

The injectable treatments can be completed on your lunch break! They’re that quick. Plus, you can get right back to your normal day afterwards.

It treats multiple conditions

That’s right! Botox can treat more than just wrinkles. It started out as an anti-aging treatment, but now has multiple conditions that it can be used to remedy.

It can be used preventatively

It used to be that most people didn’t think about getting Botox until wrinkles had already appeared. Now it’s possible to receive “baby Botox” injections to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place!

6 unexpected benefits of Botox

Botox was originally FDA approved for wrinkle treatments, but over the years has been revealed to have other benefits as well!

Relax the DAOs (Depressor Anguli Ois)

The DAO muscles are near your mouth and when they’re tense it can cause a perpetual frown. Because neuromodulators relax muscles, the injections can result in a more natural resting face.

Treat “Tech Neck”

Everyone’s a little guilty of too much screen time these days and constantly looking down can strain the neck and shoulders. This stress can cause pain, stiffness, and headaches. Botox injections can be used to alleviate those issues by relaxing the platysmal bands.

Decrease excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)

The most common places people experience excessive sweating are under the arms, the scalp, hands, and feet. Neuromodulators block the nerve signals that cause sweating and can provide relief with regular injections.

Reduce Gummy Smile

Another one of the benefits of Botox is that it can be used in combination with lip filler to enhance the appearance of the upper lip. By increasing the size of the lip, they can also reduce the appearance of a gummy smile.

Relieve Migraines

If you suffer from frequent migraines, you might find that neurotoxins injected at the temples can relieve the pain and frequency.
