4 Things You Didn’t Know Botox Was Used For


The rich and famous use it and it’s likely that your friends and coworkers have had their own dose of this filler as well. As the most popular filler on the market, Botox is considered to be a miracle worker for many women. Used to help fill in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead, Botox gives patients a younger and more even looking skin tone. However, although it’s predominant use is as the top facial filler on the market, Botox is also used to treat a variety of other areas, including the following.

  1. BotoxMigraines
    If you’re like the millions of individuals who suffer from debilitating chronic migraines, and you just can’t seem to find a cure, then Botox might actually be able to help. During this process, 31 injections will be inserted into the neck and head every 12 weeks in order to help prevent the onset of headaches.
  2. Underarm Sweat
    Nothing is quite as embarrassing as lifting up your arm only to reveal a giant sweat stain underneath. If you suffer from chronic underarm sweating and it is causing embarrassment and discomfort, Botox can help with that too! By having injections of Botox made in your underarms, it helps to stop the production of chronic sweat, leaving you with less sweat stains and less of an embarrassment.
  3. Overactive Bladder
    One of the most surprising things that Botox can help with is an overactive bladder. If you struggle with the constant urgency to urinate and just can’t seem to find some sort of relief, then Botox can help you. During the procedure, Botox is injected into the bladder muscle in order to help stop any spasms that help induce the desire to urinate.
  4. Neck Pain
    Cervical Dystonia is a condition that causes neck pain in individuals who are 16 years and older, and that effects even the slightest neck movements. However, you may have guess by now, that Botox can in fact also help to alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by this disorder.

Botox is used for a slew of other things not associated with plastic surgery. In fact, it can be used as a tool to help treat serious conditions like chronic migraines and neck pain. If you or a loved one suffers from any of these conditions, ask your doctor today about the possibility of using Botox treatment.
