3 Lesser-Known Benefits of Botox
1. Curb Excessive Sweating
Excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, can make life uncomfortable for those who live with it. The physical discomfort and the social impact may cause significant distress for anyone with the condition. Botox can help with that. While not a life-threatening condition, excessive perspiration does affect your overall quality of life and may cause embarrassment at work. Botox injections are not a cure for hyperhidrosis, but a course of treatment can help alleviate the symptoms for up to six months. Injections are particularly successful in addressing hyperhidrosis in the armpits, feet, and hands.
2. Migraine Relief
If you suffer from migraine headaches, Botox may be able to help. A carefully-crafted treatment plan will likely include multiple injections from one of our highly-qualified injectors. The course of treatment may help minimize the frequency and intensity of your migraines. By forcing the muscles to relax, the injections help ward off the pain that migraines bring. Botox has brought enormous relief to many migraine sufferers, and this treatment is one of the additional benefits of Botox.
3. TMJ Pain Relief
Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) pain is a common affliction that can result in debilitating discomfort. Relaxation of the jaw muscles by injecting Botox may result in significant pain relief if the joint itself is intact and free of significant arthritis.
