The Emotional Benefits of Botox

If you’re ready to say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles, it may be time to consider Botox®, the most popular non-surgical treatment for erasing the signs of aging. This minimally-invasive procedure only takes minutes to smooth away the years, leaving your skin looking smooth, fresh, and firm. 

At KeyLife Med Spa in San Antonio, Texas, Anwar Gerges, MD, and our entire team are here to help you look and feel your best. That’s why we want you to know that the benefits of Botox may extend beyond your skin. Read on to learn how this aesthetic treatment may be able to offer emotional benefits as well! 

What is Botox?

Botox is an injectable treatment composed of the botulinum toxin. This popular injectable is commonly used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, like crow’s feet and frown lines. 

Your skin begins to lose elasticity and tone in your late twenties. As a result, when your facial muscles make repeated contractions from motions like smiling or frowning, wrinkles begin to form. 

Botox blocks the signal from the injected nerve to the muscle. This prevents the muscle from contracting as tightly. The result? Your face appears younger as wrinkles and lines soften. The best part? It stays that way for up to four months.

Like all injectables, results are technique specific, so it’s important to get injections from qualified professionals, like the team at KeyLife Med Spa. 

What about the emotional benefits?

There are many products and services that claim to turn back the hands of time and erase fine lines and wrinkles. Yet Botox remains the most popular injectable with over 7 million procedures performed each year.  

Part of the reason Botox remains so popular is that it helps battle the unwanted emotions that accompany looking older than you feel. Not only are your fine lines and wrinkles reduced, but the psychological strain is lifted. 

Many patients report significant emotional benefits after getting Botox injections. The top five benefits include: 

In fact, based on patient reports, scientists are actively studying the use of Botox to treat depression. Researchers believe that Botox’s effectiveness in treating mood is related to our “facial feedback” mechanism, which relies on facial expressions to send feedback about our emotions to the brain. Research is still ongoing, but early results are promising. 

How can I learn more about Botox?

Before you receive Botox, our team examines your skin and medical history to ensure Botox is right for you. While most people are candidates, the treatment isn’t for women who are pregnant or nursing or people with certain medical conditions. 

Our team also determines the optimal placement for each injection as well as the amount needed to give you the best results for smoother-looking skin and a happier outlook!
