Like it has done with so many things in our world, COVID-19 has changed the landscape of beauty and wellness. Face-masks have become a requirement and show no sign of leaving for quite some time. Having to wear them every day has brought a shift in the world of beauty’s requests.
Because masks cover a large portion of the lower face, they draw obvious attention to foreheads and eyes. This attention has led to an increase demand for Botox: an injection which relaxes the muscles in the forehead and around the eyes that create fine lines and wrinkles (i.e. worry lines, crow’s feet and that vertical wrinkle between your eyes known as the “11”). Botox injections create a smoother, younger appearance and help clients achieve an entirely new level of self-confidence. Results can be seen within a few days, with the full result achieved in 2 weeks. The benefits of Botox can last anywhere from 3-6 months.
In addition to the stress and anxiety that COVID-19 has created from a medical perspective, it has also caused severe emotional stress to individuals as schools and businesses have closed and jobs have been lost. Recent studies have revealed a tremendous rise in stress levels across the United States, and this has contributed to stress related tension headaches, migraines and TMJ. TMJ is a painful condition that can cause pain in your jaw joint and in the muscles that control jaw movement. In cases where traditional remedies (anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxers) aren’t enough, Botox injections into the jaw muscles used for chewing have been shown to relieve pain associated with TMJ disorders.
