Chances are you’ve already heard of Botox and what it can do for wrinkles in the face, the feature it’s most commonly known for. But did you know that there are numerous other benefits that can come from a Botox procedure? Read on to learn more about Botox and how it might be able to help you!
What is Botox?
Botox is a type of drug that is prepared for medical use to treat certain muscular conditions. The goal of botox is to cosmetically remove undesired wrinkles in the skin, typically on the face. Botox comes with a number benefits, such as the ones below.
The first thing most people think about is the ability to reduce the amount of wrinkles in the face. Although, these wrinkles are limited to those that result as a result of movement in the face, like smiling or frowning. These are often referred to as “motion wrinkles” and is what Botox focuses on.
Helps Fight Migraines
One of the doctors from the FDA that approved Botox has reported that it can be utilised to reduce, or even outright prevent, headaches in adult patients that have suffered from chronic migraines. There have been many reports of a reduced frequency of migraines after receiving Botox.
Fixes Crossed Eyes
Due to the nature of Botox and its ability to help relax muscles, it has the ability to help correct crossed eyes, known as strabismus. It does this by directly relaxing the eye muscles so that they aren’t actively working against one-another. This can help the other eye muscle to heal and as a result, will progressively fix crossed eyes and other related eye muscle conditions.
Increase Bladder Control
For those that suffer from bladder incontinence, Botox may be the answer. Most people don’t think about Botox when they want to control an overactive bladder, but it can help to increase the volume in which it can hold. As a result, bladder incontinence can drastically reduce.
If you suffer from hyperhidrosis, the official term for ‘excessive sweating,’ Botox may be able to help. Botox has been shown to help fend off excessive sweating, helping those that suffer from it live a more relaxed life where excessive sweating may have impacted them in social situations.
Relief From Joint Pain
There have been studies that have shown plausible evidence that Botox can help to alleviate shoulder, hip and knee pain. It can help to block certain undesired signals in the body that would cause the muscle to contract in a painful way.
