At one time, Botox was largely associated as a simple anti-wrinkle injection. However, as consumers have become savvier about the different ways in which this toxin can be used, it has encouraged more practitioners to start offering more advanced Botox treatments.
Advanced Botox treatments are defined by either the difficulty of the procedure or the condition Botox is being used to treat. It takes a lot of skill to perform more advanced treatments which is why thorough training will need to be carried out. Here, we’ll look at some of the different advanced Botox treatments available that you may want to introduce into your practice.
Advanced Botox Treatment: Nasal Tip Botox
A great example of an advanced treatment is Nasal Tip Botox. Used to stop the tip of the nose from drooping, it helps to give it much more definition. The Botox works by relaxing the muscles of the nose which are currently weighing it down. It’s basically a non-invasive version of a nose lift.
The treatment takes around 30 minutes, and results can be seen within two weeks. The fact the results last for six months is also a major benefit to patients.
Advanced Botox Treatment: Smoker’s Lines
Also referred to as Perioral Rhytides, smoker’s lines gather around the lips. They are a collection of small vertical lines, caused when the muscles are frequently bunched together. While anybody can develop these lines as a sign of ageing, they are more prevalent in smokers.
Advanced Botox can help to eliminate the lines, though it requires expert precision to target them correctly. The injections are provided close to the lips, in order to relax the tiny muscles surrounding them.
The treatment takes approximately 20 minutes to perform and results will be seen within 3-10 days. The results should last around 4-6 months.
Advanced Botox Treatment: Masseter Muscle
The masseter muscle is located around the jaw and mouth, responsible for adding definition along the jawline. For some women, they feel their jawline is too defined, creating a masculine appearance. This can be caused naturally, or it may be down to over-clenching the teeth or even chewing a lot of gum.
Advanced Botox treatment can be used to relax the patient’s jaw muscles and provide a much softer appearance around the jaw. Treatment takes around 30-40 minutes and results will be seen within 10-14 days. The results should last for around 4-6 months.
Advanced Botox Training: Excessive Sweating
Everybody sweats, but some patients experience excessive sweating. It could be sweating of the hands or armpits and it can cause significant embarrassment to sufferers. Botox injections into the armpits have proven to help reduce the problem, helping patients to enjoy a normal life.
Treatment takes around 45 minutes, and results can be experienced after 7-14 days. The results last anywhere from 6-9 months.
These are just a small selection of advanced Botox treatments available to patients. If your practice isn’t currently offering more advanced procedures, you could be missing out to your competitors.
