Beyond Wrinkles: 6 Surprising Reasons to Consider Botox Injections

Anti aging medical spas offer all kinds of treatments, including Botox, to improve the appearance of your skin. An immensely popular treatment for over 20 years, Botox injections were the top non-surgical procedure performed in 2018. But it might surprise you to learn that Botox treatment isn’t only meant to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. In fact, the use of Botox often goes beyond skin wellness to treat a number of other medical conditions and health concerns. Let’s take a closer look at six unexpected reasons to consider Botox injections.

  1. Migrane Headaches: Migraine headaches are the third most prevalent illness worldwide, with one in every four U.S. households including someone who suffers from migraines. These debilitating headaches can be difficult to treat and can sometimes last for days, causing additional symptoms like light sensitivity and nausea. Botox was approved by the FDA for migraine headache treatment in 2010; treatment typically involves around 30 injections in places on the head and neck. Results of Botox treatment for migraine headaches can last for about three months, with many people experiencing fewer and less severe migraines as a result.
  2. Excessive Sweating: Although sweating helps to regulate body temperature, there can be too much of a good thing. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that involves excessive sweating of the feet, hands, underarms, or face. This condition can be frustrating and embarrassing for many people and was difficult to treat until the FDA approval for Botox came through in 2004. Botox treatment has been found to be up to 90% effective in treating certain types of hyperhidrosis and repeated treatments have been shown to be safe — particularly because the areas impacted by this condition actually contain a very small percentage of a person’s sweat glands.
  3. Acne: Although Botox is commonly known as a wrinkle treatment, there are actually other skin conditions that these injections can be used to address. Botox is sometimes used to treat acne breakouts, which can alleviate the need for harsh topical products, antibiotics, and risky oral medications like Accutane. One small study found that a single dose of Botox can decrease oil production and pore size, which allowed 85% of patience to experience improvements in their acne as a result.
  4. Eye Disorders: Eye disorders such as strabismus (characterized by improper eye alignment) and blepharospasm (which involves involuntary blinking or twitching) can often find relief through Botox injections. Essentially, the injections can relax the muscles to minimize spasms or correct the position of the eyes. In some cases, this can even help strabismus patients avoid surgery.
  5. Overactive Bladder: Many Botox treatments center around the face and head, but that’s not always the case. In 2013, Botox was approved by the FDA as a treatment for overactive bladder. These injections can help to relax the bladder while increasing its storage capacity, making urinary incontinence less likely to occur.
  6. Neck and Vocal Cord Spasms: Conditions like cervical dystonia (which involves neck pain and abnormal positioning of the head) and spasmodic dysphonia (a neurological issue that culminates in spasms of the vocal cords, making the voice sound shaky or strained) can be treated with Botox, too. By relaxing the muscles in the affected areas, individuals can find relief from discomfort while experiencing more normalized characteristics of the head, neck, or voice.

Whether you’re simply interested in attaining a more youthful look or you’re seeking relief from an unrelated medical condition, Botox injections may provide the solution you’re looking for.
