Botox® isn’t just a one-trick pony. As a muscle relaxant it has a range of cosmetic and therapeutic uses that can help solve a number of problems or issues. By blocking the release of a chemical called acetylcholine, muscles can be relaxed for an extended period of time for a treatment that can last up to between 3-6 months.
As a cosmetic substance its main use is a skin treatment to smooth deep and persistent facial lines such as forehead wrinkles or crow’s feet. This gives the appearance of a smoother, more youthful complexion by evening out the skin.
As a therapeutic substance its reach extends further. Hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating) can be controlled with Botox® injections as it blocks the chemicals that turn on sweat glands.
Botox® has also been proven to reduce a number of chronic pains. Sufferers of back, joint and foot pain as well as those who suffer from frequent migraines have all found respite through regular Botox® injections.
For those with an overactive bladder Botox® can also offer a solution to an embarrassing and often socially limiting problem.
This purified protein is also used to treat movement disorders or muscle spasms such as crossed eyes (strabismus), uncontrolled blinking (blepharospasm) and cervical dystonia (spasmodic torticollis), which is an involuntary muscle contraction in the neck that causes abnormal posture of the neck or head as well as abnormal movement in that area.
