Cosmetic Uses of Botox VA
Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments. This injectable is safe and effective for many treatments. Here are some of the most popular cosmetic uses of Botox in VA.
How Botox Works
Botox is made from botulinum toxin. When used correctly, in small doses, it has benefits in the medical community and cosmetic world. Botox temporarily paralyzes muscles by preventing the release of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine attaches to the receptors of the muscle and causes cells to contract or shorten. When this chemical is no longer released, the muscle cells don’t contract. This means the muscle relax and become less stiff.
Uses of Botox VA
Cosmetically, Botox is used to treat wrinkles, but it has other uses as well. Typically, it is used to treat the appearance of facial wrinkles between the eyebrows, around the eyes, on the forehead and around the mouth.
Hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, can be treated with Botox. This condition significantly impacts a person’s life. it may affect the scalp, underarms, hands, feet, and groin. This treatment is particularly effective since it blocks the signals responsible for sweating.
Botox Lip Flip
The Botox lip flip is an alternative to lip fillers. Tiny micro doses of Botox injected around the lips lets the upper lip roll slightly out, making it appear fuller. Some patients prefer this more subtle look, while others use the Lip Flip as a way to “try on” lip fillers.
Botox Nose Lift
Botox can be used to treat a hooked nose, or down turned nose. When injected, it relaxes the muscles the pull the nose down. This can let the tip of the nose lift slightly. This is a good option for people who want to avoid surgical rhinoplasty.
