Uses Of Botox with Signs of Aging

Botox is the most popular when it comes to treatment for signs of aging. There is no other alternative that comes close to the widely accepted Botox. 

In fact, Americans spent four billion dollars on Botox in 2014 and more than six million treatments. And while everyone is familiar with the regular botox Melbourne treatments, many patients are still unaware of the many other uses for this injectable drug. Let us look at some of them.

Frown lines are the lines that form between the eyebrows. Treatment usually requires twenty units of Botox, but men with strong muscles and some women may need a higher dose.

Forehead lines are often seen with expressions like surprise or questioning. Typically, applying eight to twelve units to the forehead will relax these lines. It is important not to treat the forehead too much as it can cause an unnatural appearance or lower the eyebrows.

Crow’s feet are lines outside the eyes that can be treated with twelve units per side. Also, neckbands are caused by contraction of platinum muscles. These vertical bands on the neck are often seen with age and can be easily treated with ten to fifteen units per band.

Lines below the eyes or bulging caused by contraction of the orbicularis oculi muscles can be improved by only one to two units per side.

Vertical lip lines, also called smoker’s lines, although not always seen only in smokers or lipstick lines can be improved with the use of Botox and fillers. Commonly, eight units of Botox fillers can really improve these lines.

Bunny lines appear on the bridge of the nose due to contraction of the nasal muscles and are easily treated with four to six units. 

Chin cobble-stoning is caused by the contraction of the mentalis muscles. The chin can be smoothed by injecting four to six units into this muscle.

Loose or downturned corners of the mouth are caused by depressed angel oris muscles. An injection of fewer than two units per side helps remove this.

An undefined jawline can be improved by injecting eight to ten units of Botox into the platysma muscle on each side of the jawline. Known as a Nefertiti lift, this procedure helps refine the jawline and smooth the appearance of jowls.

Although this is not an anti-aging treatment, excessive or unwanted underarm sweating can be treated with Botox. Each armpit requires about fifty units and treatment usually controls sweating for six months.

So, there are a lot of benefits and uses of Botox. All you need to do is find a reliable doctor and surgeons who can administer you and guide you on Botox usage.

Nobody likes to age, though it is natural. Aging will occur, but it does not mean that you have to look your age. With Botox treatment, you can prolong your youthful appearance and live a more confident life.
