(Newswire.net — November 16, 2016) Troy, Michigan — Botox Cosmetic is a skin rejuvenation treatment that helps diminish or erase fine lines and wrinkles without surgery. While its effects are temporary, lasting up to three to four months, repeated uses help keep your face looking smoother and more younger-looking.

Botox is one of the most popular skin rejuvenation procedures. Its manufacturer, Allergan, reports Botox treatments have been administered in more than 11 million cosmetic procedures since 2002. Let’s explore five facts about this favorite treatment.

1. A little known fact about Botox is that it can alleviate excessive sweating.

Botox is a treatment option that’s FDA-approved for excessive perspiration. Botox can be injected into underarms, palms of the hands and soles of the feet. It works by preventing the release of chemical signals that activate sweat glands. Ask your doctor if this is a good option for you. It may require several injections, but the results can last for about a year.

2. Another little known fact is Botox treatments can help relieve depression.

A study published in the Journal of Psychiatric Research, in 2013, found that using Botox in facial muscles appears to bring about significant and long-lasting antidepressant effects in people with major depression. The connection between facial expressions when sad (frowning) feeding back into the brain was broken when people received Botox treatments. As a result, individuals experienced less depressive symptoms.

3. Botox is safe to be injected into humans.

Botox Cosmetic is derived from small amounts of highly purified botulinum toxin from the bacteria that causes botulism. It’s specially formulated and given at doses as recommended by its original manufacturer. That’s why there is no generic form of Botox. Globally, Botox is the top selling product of its kind.

4. Botox works by controlling muscle movement.

When you smile or frown, your facial movements create wrinkles and crow’s feet. If you’re younger, when you go back to a neutral expression, these lines disappear. As you age, your skin is not as elastic, and the lines remain visible even when you aren’t moving your face.

Botox works by temporarily reducing muscle movement in the facial areas where it’s been placed. By reducing muscle activity, the result is visible smoothing of your crow’s feet wrinkles and frown lines between the eyebrows.

5. Botox is for men too.

According to Botox manufacturer Allergan, 17.5% of all Botox procedures were performed on men. Clinical trials showed that it successfully treated men for moderate to severe frown lines.
