If you’ve been living under a rock for the last decade or so, you might not have heard of Botox. But for the rest of us, it’s probably one of the best-known brands and most familiar words in our vocabulary, whether we’ve used it or not.
For those of us who have had Botox injections, we’re pretty sure we know what this neurotoxin can do to help smooth the lines on our faces. You might also have seen some of the TV ads touting Botox as a method to help control everything from migraine headaches to over-active bladders. What an amazing product!
But there are some new developments in the use of Botox, some of them being used in the place of, or to help postpone, the need for invasive plastic surgery. You might be perfectly happy with all the ways you’ve been able to use Botox to improve the look of your wrinkles and give you a more youthful appearance. But the many new uses for Botox are just getting started. Here are a few that might sound too good, or too weird, to be true:
Is your nose crooked?
Botox has been used to lift the tip of the nose for some or slope the nose downward for others.
Are your eyes too narrow?
Botox has been used to create a wider appearing eye.
Does your smile show too much of your gums?
Botox can be keep your upper lip from lifting as high when you smile, keeping those upper gums more attractively covered.
Still fighting skin breakouts?
