woman with crows feet who needs botox
Botox is an injectable solution that can be used to temporarily prevent individual nerves from passing the electrical signals that cause associated muscles to contract. Botox is widely used to reduce facial lines and wrinkles that are the result of facial muscle contractions – basically, any line or wrinkle that becomes more apparent when you activate certain facial muscles can be made less apparent by reducing or eliminating the ability...

Although Botox is well known as an effective way to reduce or eliminate facial lines and wrinkles, it has another lesser-known usage — treating excessive sweating. How Botox Controls Sweating Botox helps reduce facial wrinkles by blocking the nerve signals that cause associated muscles to contract – if muscles don’t receive signals telling them to contract, then any wrinkles linked to the muscles will become less visible. Botox’s ability to...

When researching the effects of various cosmetic injectable products on the body, it’s unusual to see any mention of the fact that injectable treatments (including dermal fillers and Botox) do not necessarily have identical effects when used on different people. This is one reason why an experienced practitioner will approach new patients cautiously, applying products judiciously until they’ve established exactly how each patient reacts to different products and dosages. The...

Although Botox is widely used as an effective, non-invasive way to reduce or eliminate facial wrinkles by preventing the muscle contractions that cause the wrinkles, it is not the only commercially available injectable product that can be used to achieve this effect. Dysport is, like Botox, based on modified versions of the botulinum toxin. Both products work by blocking the passage of the nerve signals that cause facial muscles to...
woman discussing botox with her doctor to treat TMJ
We previously wrote about the possible use of Botox to treat jaw pain. The sliding hinges that connect each side of your jawbone to your skull are known as the temporomandibular joints, TMJ for short. The powerful masseter muscles surrounding the jaw are responsible for moving the jaw, but most particularly they are used when chewing food. TMJ joints can become inflamed via trauma to the jaw or neck, but...
woman looking in the mirror debating on botox and if it will help her acne
Botox is best known as a particularly effective way to treat muscle-related facial lines and wrinkles. There are however several other cosmetic problems that can potentially be treated using Botox – acne outbreaks being one of the lesser-known ones. Causes of Acne Outbreaks Acne occurs when hair follicles become blocked and infected. This can be caused by one or more factors, including overactive production of oil by the sebaceous glands,...
woman before and after a botox touch up session in los angeles
The effects of a Botox procedure are not immediately apparent – results start to appear two to four days after treatment and continue to develop for a week or two afterward. There is no hard-and-fast rule – Botox simply affects people differently, and naturally, the quantity of Botox administered is also a factor. Experienced practitioners are typically conservative in the choice of how much Botox to administer – it’s easy...

Botox has proven to be a very effective and popular way to reduce or even eliminate many facial lines and wrinkles. The effects of each Botox treatment are temporary, typically lasting between three and six months, and so Botox procedures have to be periodically repeated to stop lines and wrinkles from eventually reappearing. As a consequence, many have wondered if the long-term use of Botox has negative consequences. How Does...

Botox and facial fillers are both applied via injection, but the two minimally invasive cosmetic procedures differ in all other respects. The essential difference is that Botox can be used to indirectly reduce lines and wrinkles by blocking nerve signals to the muscles that actually cause the lines and wrinkles. Dermal fillers, however, are used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles by adding extra volume and structure beneath...

As Botox is administered using needles, it’s not unusual that the first question potential patients ask is how painful will it be? As “no pain, no gain” is not the answer they’re typically looking for; we gathered some relevant information. Does Botox Hurt? Botox needles are very small – as a result, many patients report feeling no pain at all. That’s not guaranteed, however, and some patients do indeed experience...
