Nowadays, it’s easier than ever to kiss your wrinkles, crow’s feet and forehead lines good-bye, thanks to a little miracle in a bottle called Botox. Botox has a storied history: It was licensed to Allergan, Inc. and approved by the FDA in 2002 to treat frown lines.
While the popularity of age-prevention methods and finding the best beauty products are best relegated in everyday conversation, here are three reasons Botox might just be the right method for you to help prevent wrinkles and other unlikely conditions.
1. Visible Signs of Aging
Growing older is inevitable, but you can minimize the signs of aging with Botox injections every 3–4 months.
“The long-term benefits are the reduction of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles requiring less frequent injections as the years go by and the muscles atrophy, says Dr. Richard Norden, MD, FACS.
“From an aesthetic standpoint, anyone that has wrinkles of the face and neck that are worse with facial expression is an excellent candidate.”
2. Headaches Are Your Worst Nightmare
If you experience frequent migraines or tension headaches, and you’ve tried everything under the sun to find a cure without feat, then Botox might be perfect for you.
Every condition is different, and consumers shouldn’t expect to completely rid themselves of certain headaches with Botox injections. However, the level of discomfort may become more tolerable and headaches will be less frequent.
Multiple injections are given around the head and neck area to dull the pain from future headaches, but, Dr. Andrew Miller, a board-certified NYC and New Jersey-based plastic surgeon, warns that not all Botox injections are created equally.
“Be wary of treatments that are overly inexpensive, even cheap, because usually what has happened to lower the cost is that it’s been diluted too much, which will lessen the result.”
3. Excessive Sweating
It’s safe to say that no one likes the idea of sweating, especially when there’s no steam sauna or physical activity involved. For those who suffer from severe underarm sweating, Botox injections just might become your new best friend.

“The best way to find a qualified doctor to perform this kind of treatment is by going to the web site: www.botoxcosmetic.com.”
“Dermatologists, plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, neurologists, ophthalmologists and ENT physicians are most qualified to perform this kind of injection, says Dr. Miller. “You should also make sure that your doctor is Botox-certified by Allergan.”
