Botox overuse and "frozen faces" - Oralift

Thankfully, there’s another more natural way to improve your complexion and reverse signs of ageing.

For over 10 years, Botox has been used cosmetically to treat wrinkles. Many, many women have used Botox treatments as a lifeline to retaining a youthful look.

Botox definitely has its proven benefits, but there are some risks as well. In fact, in a recent survey titled ‘Are We Bored of Botox?’, it was revealed that 3 in 4 Botox users would prefer a pain-free alternative – a rather large percentage of anti-ageing advocates!

Benefits of Botox

Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxic protein that, in small doses, can provide cosmetic and medical relief. This toxin works by relaxing muscle contractions and blocking nerve impulses. It is commonly used for mini facelifts as it reduces wrinkles and fine lines.

Botox is also used to treat furrowed brow, lazy eye, uncontrollable blinking, chronic pain, migraine, overactive bladder, enlarged prostate, and diabetic neuropathy.

“Frozen Face” and Other Risks of Botox

The main cause of concern is the repeated Botox treatments. The effects of Botox last several weeks but then require repeated treatment in order for the results to continue.

Your muscles begin to get trained from the Botox injections, so there is less recurrence of wrinkles. However, some people become “addicted” to Botox and repeat the treatments so often that their faces actually become frozen in appearance.

If you are looking to treat a specific condition and you don’t abuse the Botox treatment by overusing it, you may get the effect you want. But beware the risk of Botox addiction – and the cost of all those treatments.

A non-surgical alternative

Today we have a non-surgical solution – the Oralift Facial Rejuvenation device. This device can reverse the “triangle of ageing” and seem to reverse the ageing process. With a device like this, the face keeps improving as we get older.

Indeed, with the Oralift facial rejuvenation device, we see reversal of ageing.

The Oralift seems to work by using two principles: the healing capacity of the body and the body’s remarkable ability to adapt to environmental change.

The muscles of the face when relaxed usually keep the lips together and the teeth slightly apart. The little space between the upper and lower teeth is called the “free way space” and is usually 1-3mm.

At this relaxed or resting position there is a minimal amount of electrical activity occurring in the facial muscles to maintain muscle tone.

“When people start looking at you and wondering, ‘What have you had done?’ that’s the Oralift effect.”

Dr.N.Mohindra

When you wear the Oralift appliance, it separates the teeth by an amount much greater than their original “free way space”. The muscles on the face immediately “realise” that this device is something that cannot be chewed or eaten. The muscles therefore adapt by altering their fibres to create a new resting length and a new “freeway space”.
