The Benefits of Botox
- Posted on: Feb 15 2019
Botox is one of the most popular treatments available, and we completely understand why. It requires no surgery, no downtime, and very little time before your results show up. Even better: it’s effective at what it is meant to do. Wrinkles are removed in a quick session, and stay away for months.
But, we bet there’s more about Botox that you didn’t know. Keep reading for some of the other benefits of Botox you didn’t know about.
There are other treatments and procedures out there that feel more one-size-fits-all, but not Botox. Botox is a treatment that can be tailored to your needs. If you have just one spot where wrinkles bother you, you can have only that area treated.
Studies are currently being conducted that explore how Botox can help you fight feelings of depression. You read that correctly: using Botox to prevent you from frowning may actually make you feel less sad. The idea behind this rests on the facial feedback hypothesis. The idea behind the facial feedback hypothesis this: the muscles in our face actually influence how we feel. You may remember putting a pencil in your mouth sometime in your school years, using your lips or your teeth, and reporting how you felt. Most people feel more negative when they hold a pencil with their lips, rather than their teeth, and the idea behind it is they’re mimicking a frown.
So when we frown, we feel worse, creating a negative cycle. Strangely, f you feel better after your Botox treatment, there could be a scientific reason why.
Did you know that Botox was created with the intention of treating muscle twitches? When it was used in the face, the cosmetic benefits became clear. And now, Botox is one of the most popular wrinkle treatments on the market. If you do suffer from muscle spasms, Botox can help with that, too.
