Did you know that Botox clinics around the country treat a whopping 2.95 million people each year? Of this staggering amount of people, 82% of patients see an improvement within just a week. Whether specialists place Botox under eyes, on foreheads, or around the mouth, patients can also expect to see full results in only two weeks.
What you might also not know is that Botox cosmetics can be used to treat several other unexpected things. Here are a few Botox treatments that you might not be aware of.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating, much to the dismay of its sufferers. Damp armpits, sweaty palms, and greasy faces can all cause social nightmares. Thankfully, Botox treatments can stop excessive sweating, alleviating patients’ anxieties and stress in social situations.
Bruxism is a condition in which sufferers gnash and grind their teeth, causing problems with the jaw’s musculoskeletal system. Bruxism is a serious enough condition that dental professionals advise patients to wear mouth guards at night to prevent their teeth from being damaged. Thankfully, patients can also get Botox treatments that help relax the jaw’s overworked muscles, which in turn relieves pain.
While many are completely content with taking pain relievers to help their occasional migraines, others aren’t so lucky. Some people’s migraines can be debilitating, while others may get them every day. Botox treatments can help prevent migraines by treating the muscular tension that causes migraines to occur, thus preventing them from forming.
Who would’ve thought that Botox be more than a cosmetic treatment? What’s great is that these are only a few of the unexpected Botox treatments that are out there. If you have any questions about what other conditions Botox and fillers can treat, feel free to ask in the comments or schedule a consultation with your local specialist.
