The application of botox was once restricted to just removing wrinkles, but the drug has since evolved and the list of its applications is growing. Let’s take a look at some of the uses of botox:

face acneFight acne
Botox can curb the oil production on the face, reducing breakouts. But, to completely treat acne using botox, you may need large doses that could result in the ‘frozen face’ condition.


Get a temporary face-lift

Botox can be used to create temporary face-lift like effects. Botox applications can shape your jaw, lift the tip of your nose, relax wrinkles around your eyes and forehead. The effect lasts for about 3 months.



soften jaw lineSoften your jaw line and chin
Botox for wrinkles is passé, there are other unexpected uses of the drug too. Over time, the jaw line and chin areas of your face tend to grow wider. Botox application can shrink the muscle around your jaw and narrow down the jaw line and chin. 


Tighten jowls

If your jaw line has become less defined, botox applications along the muscles of the jawbone can pull the skin up for a more defined effect.




plump lipsPlump up your lips
Fillers aren’t the only way to fake voluminous and plump lips. A few drops of botox along the borders of your lips can makes it appear plumper. This technique is also cheaper than collagen injections.

Smooth your neck

Horizontal wrinkles on the neck can become defined with age. Solve the problem with botox injections that can smoothen out the creases on your neck. 



botox for headacheBotox for headaches
Of all the medical benefits of botox, the most unexpected one is that it cures migraines. Though not completely understood how botox prevents migraines, injecting it in the forehead, temples and scalp can relax the muscles in the area preventing headaches. This is only recommended if your head ache is not curable by other methods.


Botox was once misunderstood and its applications were restricted to only reverse ageing. But the wonder drug has now got the recognition it deserves and is slowly making its way from cosmetics to medical applications.
