Botox: Cosmetic and medical uses

Botox is primarily known as a popular aesthetic treatment to reduce facial aging signs, helping women and men look years younger.

However, did you know it’s not just for fine lines and wrinkles?

Healthcare professionals also use Botox to treat a variety of medical conditions, most of which affect the neuromuscular system.

Botox injections can be used to treat excessive sweating, neck or eye spasms, overactive bladder symptoms, and even migraines.

Chronic migraines are severe headaches that can make individuals sensitive to light and noise, and feel nauseous. They can last all day and occur at least every other day. Botox injections can lessen the effects of chronic migraines and how often they occur. Botox works for migraine headaches because it blocks chemicals called neurotransmitters that carry pain signals from your brain. Botox is like a roadblock in that pathway. It stops the chemicals before they get to the nerve endings around your head and neck. You’ll get several shots of Botox around your head and neck once every 12 weeks to dull or prevent migraine headaches.You may need 30 to 40 shots in all, and you’ll get an equal number on each side of your head. If you have migraine pain in one particular spot, you may need more shots there. You could see results 2 to 3 weeks after your first treatment.

Botox can also relax eyelid muscles to relieve patients of this condition for several months at a time.

Whether you are just noticing facial signs of aging or want to take back your appearance and look years younger, botox can help.
