Botox makes you look younger. Sold! Do I even need to tell you any other functions before you head out of the door to get your Botox job? Jokes aside, Botox has many benefits which has taken it to the popularity levels it has today. Besides the technical jargon that you can find on Wikipedia about chemical composition, medical terms, blah, blah… here I list for you the top  benefits of Botox – keeping it straight and simple.

1. Non-surgical

The word ‘surgery’ freaks me out. It just sounds wrong. Do you agree? I think just the fact that there is no incision, scarring, stitches or cuts involved makes Botox much better than other invasive cosmetic treatments. Injections of Botox are suited for people like you and me who want to see benefits of plastic surgery, without the complications and hassle. I mean, of course you’d prefer a quick injection over spending a day under the knife. Benefit numero uno!

2. Effective anti-aging

Have you looked at the mirror and said, “Oh I wish I could wipe a few of those wrinkles of my face” Yeah I’ve done that too. It brings a smile to my face to tell you that Botox relaxes the facial muscles resulting in smoother skin and reduced wrinkles. You will agree if I said that wrinkles make us look old. Before all you pessimists jump in to spoil the party, I will make it clear that I am not the one to go against graceful aging. But if I can take away a few years off my face by a quick job of Botox, I’m game. One of the best and most common ways is using Botox to reduce wrinkles on the forehead.

3. Eyebrow lift

A beautiful face and sexy eyebrows go hand in hand. As you age, eyebrows gradually lose their arch and appear dull. Dull brows, frown lines below and above the brows, deep sagging of skin below the brows or permanent wrinkles around the brows due to expressions – you name it, Botox can treat it. You may have heard the word ‘Brow life’. Yeah, that’s what they call it and trust me, Botox can do wonders in this case.

4. Hyperhidrosis treatment

Ever thought that Botox was for cosmetic purposes only? I did too! Hyperhidrosis is the technical word for excessive sweating. Now I don’t need to tell you why excessive sweating of the palms, underarms or feet can be embarrassing. For reasons very obvious, this is uncomfortable. Botox relaxes the muscles around which it is injected and reduces the amount of sweat secreted from the glands around it. Botox will reduce symptoms of excessive sweating for up to 6 months after one treatment.

5. Migraine treatment

Exactly how Botox treats migraine pain is unknown, but medical experts think that the drug blocks the sensory nerves that project the pain messages to the brain, as well as relaxing muscles, thus making them less sensitive to an onslaught of pain. The only side effects observed thus far are a temporary drooping of the skin around the injection site, which can be avoided by changing the point of injection, and the occasional slight bruising, bleeding or burning sensation, all of which resolve themselves shortly. People who receive Botox injections for migraines report the instances of the headaches drop by at least half, if not more, and the headaches are less severe.
