Over the last 15 or so years, Botox® Cosmetic Injections have gone from being an aesthetic curiosity to possibly the most commonly-performed cosmetic
treatment in the US. Neuromodulators like Botox® and Dysport® are now staples for patients who wish to reduce the appearance of aging signs like fine lines and wrinkles in the upper portion of the face caused by excessive motion or expression. Though despite its status as America’s favorite cosmetic injectable treatment, there is a lot that many people may not know about Botox®. That’s why our skincare experts wanted to present the following facts.
Botox® Can be More than Just a Cosmetic Treatment
Although it is commonly thought of as a cosmetic treatment, Botox® can help patients in other ways. For example, Botox® injections are FDA-approved to treat hyperhidrosis, a condition that causes excessive sweating. Unlike surgical alternatives for excess sweating, Botox® injections to the armpits can block the nerves from reaching the sweat glands to effectively reduce sweating. Botox® can also be used to help patients who suffer from chronic migraines.
Botox® is For Younger Patients Too
Cosmetic injectable treatments like Botox® are commonly associated with older patients since they are often used to treat visible signs of aging. However, in recent years younger patients have begun to use Botox® to help treat wrinkles and lines before they begin to develop. This is known as preventative Botox®.
Botox® Can be Administered with Different Methods
Depending on the specific aesthetic needs or preferences of the patient, we may utilize different injection methods for Botox® treatments. For instance, here at AYA™, we use the AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ method for Botox® injections. AQUAGOLD® fine touch™ is a unique application technique that uses tiny stainless steel microchannels (each thinner than a human hair) to direct small droplets of Botox® directly into the patient’s skin. The result is greater absorption of active ingredients and even more precise skin tightening and rejuvenation.
