7 Powerful Things You Didn’t Know Botox Can Do

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.

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. 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.

Cleavage Makeover

Fine lines in the cleavage can appear after too much sun exposure, or even just general aging. If “wrinkly cleavage” bothers you, botox can come to the rescue. A simple injection can smooth these unwanted lines out, spicing up your cleavage.

Sweat Stopper

Many people use botox to treat their hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) because 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.

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.

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 won’t be the first prescription that a doctor will suggest for acne, but it can often be a great bonus when getting botox treatments anyway.

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 botox use 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.

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.

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!
