5 Things You Might Not Know About Botox®

Botox® is the most popular injectable treatment in the world for addressing the lines and creases that form around the forehead and eyes over time. But while tackling those pesky signs of aging is what it is best known for, Botox® can actually be used to treat many other concerns.

#1 Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating) Treatment

Botox® is an option for treating hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. Injections can be given in the underarms, palms of the hands, soles of the feet, upper lip, nose, and even the forehead. Individuals with hyperhidrosis are often very self-conscious of the condition, and using Botox® to block the nerve signals that stimulate the sweat glands can help bring back their confidence.

#2 Chronic Migraines

It is becoming more and more common for Botox® treatments to be used on individuals with chronic migraines, as it prevents the headaches before they even start, with results lasting up to 12 weeks between treatments.

#3 Wrinkles You Don’t Have Yet

There is not really an ideal age to start Botox®. While the average client may be in their 30s or 40s, many people in their 20s are starting to get preventative Botox® treatments to help prevent signs of aging before they even occur.

#4 Jaw Muscle Size

Botox® can be used to treat the jaw muscles, thus reducing the size of the jaw and making the face appear thinner and more heart shaped. As we age, the corners of our mouth also tend to turn downward, causing an unhappy expression. Botox® can be precisely placed to re-lift the corners of the mouth and restore a relaxed appearance.

#5 TMJ Relief

Individuals that suffer from TMJ (medically called temporomandibular joint disorders) can use Botox® to help relieve pain and alleviate any issues with chewing. TMJ occurs when the jaw bone and the cheek bone rub together, typically during chewing.
