How Botox Can Benefit You
Undeniably, Botox treatments have taken the world by storm. Men, women, and celebs alike have turned to Botox to achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated look without surgery. In fact, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the year 2014 marked the highest incidence of Botox treatments to date: a whopping 6.7 million injections. This surge in popularity comes to no surprise. Botox (onabotulinumtoxinA) provides numerous cosmetic benefits by treating fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, around the eyes, in between the brows, and in other areas as well. However, its benefits don’t end there. Here’s a look at a few of Botox’s lesser-known advantages:
Chronic Migraine Relief
Migraines affect over 12% of the American population. Millions of sufferers have their daily lives disrupted by intense, debilitating headaches that are often accompanied by nausea and dizziness. But back in 2010, the FDA approved Botox for chronic migraine treatment after several studies showed a significant reduction in the rate of onset headaches. As with every medical treatment, those who suffer from migraines should consult with a doctor to make sure that Botox is right for them.
Ending Excessive Sweating
Severe underarm sweating, or primary axillary hyperhidrosis, can cause great embarrassment and even deeper emotional effects. Botox has been approved by the FDA to treat this condition because it has been found to successfully obstruct the nerves that stimulate perspiration. Injections are given in the underarm region.
Overactive Bladder Control
Sufferers of this condition know the unfortunate reality all too well: frequently having to go to the bathroom, feeling the sudden need to go, and dealing with the worry of a leaking bladder. The FDA established Botox as a safe and effective form of treatment for overactive bladder. Injecting Botox into the bladder muscle expands the bladder’s storage capacity, providing much needed relief.
