5 Uses of Botox You Probably Didn’t Know About
Botox is an incredible treatment for wrinkles and fine lines. This treatment is very well known for the aesthetic benefits it can provide. But did you know that Botox can serve as a medical treatment as well? Continue reading to learn about 5 different uses for Botox.
Botox is a neuromodulator treatment designed to block nerve signals to muscles. This injectable treatment is formulated with small amounts of botulinum toxin type A to minimize muscle function. Blocking nerve signals to muscles can diminish wrinkles, excessive sweating, incontinence, migraines, TMJ, and neck pain.
As you age, the subcutaneous fat in your body diminishes making wrinkles and fine lines more prevalent on your face and hands. When the subcutaneous fat diminishes in the face, your facial muscles are closer to the skin and there is no protective layer in between. Repetitive facial movements use these muscles repeatedly, making gradual imprints onto the skin.
Botox injections have been FDA-approved to treat hyperhidrosis. Excessive sweating can be treated with Botox because the injections turn off the targeted sweat glands, resulting in sweat-free treatment areas.
Incontinence or an overactive bladder can be treated with Botox injections into the bladder wall. Botox stops the bladder wall muscle from contracting excessively. This minimizes urinary incontinence, frequency, and urgency. It can take between three days to three weeks to begin to see the effects of this treatment.
Migraines can be extremely frustrating to endure. Botox can treat chronic migraine through a variety of injections into the forehead, temples, head, neck, and shoulders. It can take multiple sessions before your migraines begin to diminish.
Botox for neck pain, also known as TrapTox is an effective treatment to diminish aches, tightness, and overall neck discomfort. Injected into the upper trapezius muscles, this treatment blocks the signals from the nerves to the muscles, effectively treating symptoms of neck pain.
