Botulinum toxin, popularly known as Botox injections are one of the most popular non-invasive cosmetic treatments in the beauty industry. It is estimated that more than 6 million injections are given each year. Usually, these injections are either Botox, Xeolin or Dyspot. These neurotoxins are derived from Clostridium botulinum, a naturally occurring organism that exists inactively and is also non-toxic.

The Botulinum toxin is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles that develop on the skin, especially around the eyes. The toxin paralyzes the underlying muscles. For this reason, Botox treatments are usable beyond beauty. Some people use Botox injections to manage muscular movements, bladder and bowel disorders, migraines and excessive sweating.

Botox Facial

Usually, Botox injections penetrate the skin deeply to reach the muscles. However, during a Botox facial, we use microinjections, which are a fraction of a millimeter. Botox facials are ideal for minimizing sweating on the face and reducing pore sizes. Some of the ingredients used for Botox facials include hyaluronic acid to increase plumpness and give you dewy skin. We also incorporate Vitamin C to provide you with a glow and improve your skin’s radiance.

After several Botox facials, most patients report experiencing less sweating, reduced acne, and less oiliness. One way to explain this is to look at the anatomy of the skin. The oil glands on your skin are like little vessels with muscles around the opening. When the muscles around the vessels contract and squeeze to enhance sweating, the oil comes out. So, if squeezing increases oil production, then reducing the muscle contractions through a Botox facial reduces oil secretion.
