We all know that Botox is praised for its ability to smooth out wrinkles and fight the signs of aging. But did you know that it also has other, lesser-known abilities that are just as amazing? Below are seven Botox uses that you may not know about.
1. Jawline Softener
If you feel like your jawline looks “hard” or unfeminine, Botox can be injected in this area in order to shrink the muscle there and narrow the jawline out.
Over time, the muscles on the posterior of your jaw can grow due to chewing and clenching. Botox can help to soften this muscle out.
This special Botox use can last for a year, and many clients also see a pleasant “cheek lift” when they undergo this treatment as well.
2. Cleavage Makeover
Fine lines in the cleavage can appear after too much sun exposure, or even just general aging.
If “wrinkly cleavage” bothers you, this is one of the botox uses that can come to the rescue. A simple injection can smooth these unwanted lines out, spicing up your cleavage and giving a more youthful appearance.
3. Sweat Stopper
One of the most powerful Botox uses is to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Botox has the ability to block “sweat messages” that go to your brain.
When these sweat messages are blocked, sweat production stops. Botox injections can solve your sweating issues for up to six months, and this Botox use has been very life-changing for some people who suffer from hyperhidrosis.
4. Nose Lift
Because our noses never actually stop growing, they can start to look more “hooked” as we get older.
However, if you notice this happening, you can take care of it with a little botox. A Botox use for noses is to “lift it” by injecting it into the base of the nose. This releases the muscle that is pulling your nose downwards.
5. Clearer Skin
If you experience a lot of acne, it may interest you that Botox can slow down oil production. Since oil is one of the biggest causes of acne, this means that Botox injections can often help with spotty skin.
Botox may not be the first prescription that a doctor will suggest for acne, but it can often be a great bonus when getting Botox treatments anyway.
6. De-Gum Your Smile
Some people dislike how “gummy” their grin is, and find that it distracts from their smile.
If this is you, one of the great Botox uses is that it can decrease how much of your gums show. A few small injections near the nose can lower your upper lip, preventing all that gumminess. At Lazer Lounge, we offer many other options for enhancing lips with fillers and injections.
7. Eliminate Neck Lines
This Botox use is more well-known than the ones above—however, many people who have neck lines and wrinkles do forget that Botox is fantastic for smoothing these out.
Small Botox injections in the neck area can give you a more youthful-looking neck, and can take years off of your appearance. This is one of our favorite Botox uses!
8. Temporary Facelift
Botox can decrease forehead wrinkles, lines around the eyes, and can also define your jaw. Combining all of these together every few months will give you an instant, non-surgical facelift!
