Wait, there’s Botox for Sweating?! What Else Can I Treat?
What most women do not realize is that while Botox absolutely benefits you in the anti-aging department, Botox has other uses, too. In fact, men are now getting Botox to combat other health issues, like excessive sweating. Botox is no longer limited to high end housewives, like you might see on TV. Instead, the cost of Botox treatments is now affordable enough to service most people. And what’s more is that doctors have realized that the benefits of Botox treatments stretch far beyond anti-aging. Botox is now used to deal with perspiration, dull and frizzy hair, skin issues, bladder problems, and even regular migraines. The benefits of Botox far outweigh the cost. Many of these embarrassing problems can be dealt with without the use of ongoing prescription medications. In fact, Botox is much safer with less side effects that some of the medications you might be taking to deal with health issues that Botox can combat.
Botox for Migraines—chronic migraines are common at every age for a variety of reasons. “Chronic” migraines are defined as migraines occurring fourteen or more times each month. Believe it or not, Botox treatments for migraines are not only preventative, but the only FDA approved preventative treatment out there. For people who suffer with migraines, missing days of work or school, this could finally get your life back on track.
If you are considering Botox for migraines, you should expect to get treated in the neck and head. This sounds scary, but actually you should only feel a slight prick. There are some rare side effects to consider, chiefly increase neck pain at the injection site. Schedule a consultation to see if Botox is right for you.
Botox For Sweating—Sounds too good to be true? Well, consider the fact that patients who have tried this have reported up to six and half months of sweat free days! When nothing else works, Botox is injected in the armpits, around the sweat glands. This is for severe sweating that occurs on a daily basis—enough that you are visibly sweating through your clothes. Botox can take care of this embarrassing problem with just a few treatments a year.
Botox for Hair— This is really revolutionary. Botox injections can actually improve the health of your hair. The collagen treatment is infused with essential oils and vitamins which work together to moisturize and repair to damaged, dry, or frizzy hair. Magically, Botox for hair can even repair split ends and even prevent hair loss. Botox treatments for hair are perfect for any type of hair color and texture. Treatment will last for four weeks. This is alternative to an expensive treatments that use harsh chemicals like formaldehyde.
Botox for Bladder Problem— Officially, this is called “overactive bladder” and it’s no fun to deal with or talk about. The solution is relatively simple: Botox injections finds the nerves and muscles in your bladder to block signals that cause the overactive bladder. As a result of treatment, you have reduced experiences in leakage, frequency, and sudden urge. This has been a huge discovery in Botox medical treatments in that it replaces harsh medications with serious side effects for people who suffer with this problem.
How do I Know if Restylane Treatments Are For Me?
When most people think of Botox, they think of Botox for skin. The primary ingredient in Botox is Restylane. Botox for treatment for wrinkles is the most common use for Botox and Restylane was the first drug that was FDA approved for such a treatment, and it remains a staple in the industry. Here is what you need to know about dermal fillers.
The side effects are extremely minimal. At most there can be some bruising and soreness that will subside within a few days. In extremely rare cases, tiny lumps, or granules, can form but this is easily reversed. Injections should be avoided in places where there has been skin irritation, rash, inflammation, or other skin disease. Botox for treatment of wrinkles can last for about six months. Some people follow up twice a year with Botox treatments and some only once per year. Cost varies based on need, but has become much more affordable over the last few year.
