Botox has been utilized since the early 1990s to achieve a number of medical benefits. First used to treat crossed eyes and uncontrollable muscle spasms, Botox has since become known as a primarily cosmetic treatment to help reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging. Today the FDA has approved a number of ways that Botox may be used, many of which you may have never heard of. Botox works by binding to receptors found in muscle and nerve endings and prevents the nerves from sending signals allowing muscles to contract. This essentially paralyzes the muscles for a short amount of time (generally several months). Licensed aesthetic professionals are able to harness the power of Botox to provide the following unusual treatments that you may want to try:
By injecting Botox into the sweat glands in your armpits, liscensed aestheticians are able to treat excessive sweating. This type of procedure is often helpful for summer weddings or other special occasions when heavy sweating would not be appealing.
Many of us suffer from horrible migraines that no medicine can seem to help. Botox is an alternative treatment to this problem. Botox injections around the head can help reduce the frequency and severity of migraines.
Many cases of overactive bladders occur due to damaged nerves. Using Botox every nine months, you can help relieve overactive bladders by paralyzing the muscles in this area.
If you suffer from uncontrollable blinking, Botox treatments may be able to help. By injecting the medicine into the muscles of the eyelids, Botox can help to paralyze the movement.
Neck spasms can be uncomfortable at best and extremely painful at worst. Using Botox can help to curb such spasms when injected into the neck muscle.
