The Many Benefits of Botox Injections
BOTOX® Cosmetic, offered in our Nashville, Tennessee office, provides a quick and effective remedy for the facial lines and wrinkles that age, stress, worry, and environmental factors can produce, even on a younger person’s face. A BOTOX® injection skin treatment smoothes frown lines on the forehead, between the eyes, and at the base of the nose. With BOTOX® Cosmetic, derived from botulinum toxin, “crow’s feet” wrinkles at the corners of the eyes fade or disappear for a more youthful and vital facial appearance.
BOTOX® Cosmetic provides candidates for this increasingly popular procedure with an effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles. From the treatment of “crow’s feet” at the edge of the eyes to glabellar lines (wrinkles between the brows), BOTOX® Cosmetic can smooth a wide range of facial lines and wrinkles with a simple 10-minute treatment. BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for people aged 18 to 65.
Because BOTOX® Cosmetic involves only a few small injections, a very large number of people seeking the treatment find they are excellent candidates. BOTOX® Cosmetic has been proven safe for a wide range of candidates. While there are many medical uses for the protein that makes up BOTOX® Cosmetic, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles is far and away the most common application. Anyone who would like to smooth wrinkles through BOTOX® Cosmetic – whether they be crow’s feet around the eyes or wrinkles around the mouth – is potentially a candidate for this effective treatment.

Botox for Eyes – Nashville, TN
“Dynamic wrinkles,” or wrinkles caused by facial expression and muscle movement, are especially prevalent in the area around the eyes. Fortunately, these wrinkles are very responsive to BOTOX® treatments. One of the benefits of BOTOX® injections is that BOTOX® Cosmetic weakens the muscles responsible for squinting and crinkling of the eye area. The treatment effectively reduces or eliminates crow’s feet and other wrinkles around the eyes. Since BOTOX® injections only affect muscle nerves, not nerves of sensation, patients do not experience a loss of feeling in the treated area.
Botox for Brows – Nashville, TN
Smiling, laughing, and frowning can all result in permanent wrinkling of the brow. Removing wrinkles from the area between the eyes can dramatically change a person’s appearance from one of continual anger or sadness to one of contentment and restedness. Because BOTOX® treatments are so effective in improving moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, many patients have them as an alternative to a brow lift. Reducing deep, stubborn furrows between the brows is also a widely documented benefit of BOTOX® injections for men. You will start to see aesthetic improvement from your BOTOX® injections after a few days, and results can last up to four months.
Botox for Forehead Wrinkles – Nashville, TN
Wrinkles on the forehead can give the face an older, more haggard appearance. As people age, the muscles used to form facial expressions create permanent creases in the skin. One of the benefits of BOTOX® injections is that they can be used to relax the facial muscles, resulting in smoother skin and fewer wrinkles. In areas such as the forehead, where horizontal wrinkles tend to form, the BOTOX® benefits are particularly valuable. Contrary to the common misconception that a doctor must treat each wrinkle, only the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles must be treated. Once you have received your BOTOX® treatment, the muscles that ordinarily cause wrinkles and lines to appear in the forehead are no longer as active for a period of several months.
Botox for Jaw Contouring – Nashville, TN
Recently, doctors have discovered a new BOTOX® benefit: Patients with oversized masseter muscles, the muscles of the jaw used for chewing, can be treated with BOTOX® injections. Many patients with square-shaped faces want a non-surgical option to give them the oval face shape they desire. BOTOX ® treatments have been reported to reduce the size of the masseter muscles, resulting in a gently curved cheek and jaw. There are several additional benefits of using BOTOX® injections for jaw contouring. The procedure is non-invasive. A BOTOX® treatment can be quickly performed in your doctor’s office. There is virtually no recovery time necessary; you can resume your normal activities immediately after treatment. Although the bone structure is not changed, the reduction of muscle thickness noticeably refines the angle of the patient’s jaw.
Alternative Health Benefits of Botox
The benefits of BOTOX ® injections are not limited to treating wrinkles. The FDA originally approved BOTOX ® for several non-cosmetic treatments, including blepharospasm, a condition in which the eyes twitch uncontrollably, migraine headaches, and excessive sweating. To remedy blepharospasm and muscle spasms in other areas of the body, BOTOX® treatments are used to block the nerve impulses that cause the affected muscles to twitch. BOTOX ® injections in the forehead, brow, side of the head, and back of the neck, can reduce the frequency and severity of migraine headaches for up to six months. BOTOX® treatments can also reduce excessive sweating by blocking the chemical transmitter that induces sweating. Reduction of chronic back pain and jaw tension are two additional health benefits of BOTOX® that extend beyond aesthetic enhancement.
BOTOX® Treatment for Men – Nashville, TN
While the majority of BOTOX® patients are women, many men are seeking the treatment as well. BOTOX® injections for men are a very subtle way to improve the appearance of the face, and as the procedure takes so little time, a busy man can conceivably have the procedure done on his lunch break and head right back to the office.
