What are the benefits of Botox injections?
Although Botox®️ was originally created to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles that develop in the facial area due to aging, after ample research doctors have discovered that Botox®️ has a variety of other medical applications and benefits.
1) Reducing and preventing Facial Wrinkles
To get rid of wrinkles and fine lines, Botox is injected into the muscles that are usually the underlying cause of wrinkles. This allows the muscles to relax around the injection site, making the skin smooth again and reducing the amount of wrinkles.
2) Correcting Eye Conditions
Botox can also be used to correct physical eye problems such as Lazy eyes, strabismus (crossed-eyes), and blepharospasm (rapid eye blinking). The neurotoxin in the Botox serum also stops the effects of eye twitching and squinting that’s oftentimes a symptom of stress and muscle weakness.
3) Stop Excessive Sweating
Excessive sweating, also referred to as hyper hidronios, doesn’t always stop once you start using antiperspirant. While deodorants are a recommended first line of defense against excessive sweating, if you’re still experiencing issues there is hope!
This treatment not only helps with the effects of hyperhidrosis, but it can also reverse the effects of stress sweat as well. It has a way of blocking acetylcholine, the chemical in the body that activates the sweat glands. It is specifically successful in areas of the body that are more prone to sweating like armpits.
4) Incontinence treatment
Botox is generally a last resort for overactive bladder. However, if other treatments prove to be ineffective, then your provider may recommend Botox injections to reduce incontinence due to overactive bladder.
5) Relief for Migraines
Botox®️ Cosmetic has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of migraines. The neurotoxin used in the Botox serum will start to affect the nerves and prevent both muscle tension responses and pain transmission that comes from headaches.
6) Treating Neck Spasms
Another benefit of Botox injections is they can help to reduce the effects of a condition called cervical dystonia. This condition often occurs due to abnormal head positioning and usually leads to severe neck pain. Botox prevents and reduces neck muscle spasms by inhibiting the nerves that cause the muscles to spasm.
7) Removing visible signs of aging
One of the most common and well-recognized of all Botox treatments, this serum has been shown to be effective at reducing the signs of aging, especially for reducing wrinkles. Specifically, Botox injections prevent and reduce dynamic wrinkles by inhibiting the nerve signal that trigger facial expressions
8) Treating TMJ
Botox has been approved for the treatment of TMJ since 2002. It’s been recognized as both safe and effective. The nerve-inhibiting properties of Botox help people who suffer from TMJ to reduce and alleviate symptoms.
9) Reducing Joint Pain
If you’re experiencing undue amounts of joint paint, arthritis, or overuse pain, Botox injections can help reduce the pain you’re experiencing.
10) Reducing the Appearance of Crow’s Feet
Finally, just like how Botox injections can help reduce the signs of large dynamic wrinkles on your face, injectable treatments will help reduce the signs of crow’s feet appearing around your eyes.
