Hypnotic Botox – The Latest Beauty Craze?
Hypnotherapy is well known to help with many issues such as weight loss, phobias, confidence issues, and addictions such as smoking. Creative and inventive hypno-therapists have massively expanded this traditional base of therapies, and now the latest trend seems to be hypnotic botox sessions.
How Botox Works
In actual Botox procedure works by a series of small diluted botulinum toxins’ being injected into various muscles in the face. These injections have the effect of relaxing the facial muscles, causing wrinkles to relax and soften. The effects usually last between 4 and 6 months, when another injection may be required. However it is often the case that after each injection the wrinkles return as less severe, as the muscles are trained to relax, giving some permanent benefit.
Botox blocks the transmission of acetylcholine from the nerves to the facial muscle. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter which sends a message to the muscle telling it to contract or tense up. When the flow of acetylcholine is reduced, the muscle can no longer retract and it relaxes. As a result, any wrinkled areas smooth out and soften.
A botox procedure sometimes has the side effects of headache and nausea. Hypnotherapy does not. In fact hypnotherapy patients usually wake up feeling more relaxed and happier than usual, which can aid a natural healthy sparkle and glow.
How Hypnosis Works
Hypnosis is very effective at replicating this effect, but without the need for an expensive procedure that caries a small, but albeit realistic risk. Hypnosis is very effective for relaxing both the mind and body. A good clinical hypnotherapist can direct a subjects’ attention to relax specific muscles, anywhere in the body. The hypnotherapist only needs to direct a subject to relax the muscles in the face, and the results are very similar to a botox operation – a relaxation of the facial muscles, which leads to a smoothening of the lines and wrinkles in the face.
A hypnotherapist can teach a patient self hypnosis so that they can use it to top up the initial therapy. A patient can then hypnotize themselves every few weeks in order to maintain the muscle relaxing, facial smoothing effects. A person using audio sessions can simple re listen to them every now and then for no extra charge, helping to keep those facial muscles nicely relaxed. Often over time the same long term effects as a botox procedure can be observed – the muscles in the face become more and more accustomed to relaxing, leading to a permanent smoothness of the face.
The hypnotic botox treatment follows a recent trend of other hypnotically produced operations. A hypnotic gastric band procedure has proved very popular and effective for weight loss. Hypnotic botox treatments look like they will prove to be equally as popular. This is not surprising as they are cheaper, have no side effects, and are as effective, sometimes more so, than the real procedure.
