4 Surprising Uses For Botox You Never Knew About

Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments at our Kelowna clinic for nixing unwanted wrinkles and fine lines, but did you know that it can be used for so much more than just anti-aging concerns? Here are 4 surprising uses for Botox you never knew about.

Botox Cosmetic was the first FDA-approved cosmetic treatment for temporarily improving the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines.

This quick, 15 minute treatment has become increasingly popular amongst patients because it has many benefits, such as:

  • Results that can last for up to 4 months
  • Instant improvement (results are noticed within 24-48 hours)
  • Lower costs when compared to cosmetic surgeries, such as facelifts
  • No surgical risks and no downtime
  • Few and temporary side-effects

By temporarily reducing the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe facial lines, Botox is one of the best cosmetic skin treatments to help your skin look visibly smoother and younger.

4 Surprising Uses For Botox You Never Knew About

Despite being well-known for treating unwanted facial lines and wrinkles, there are some lesser-known uses for Botox that may surprise you. These include:

1. Teeth Grinding

Do you grind and clench your teeth at night? This common condition is known as Bruxism and it can lead to a number of problems for the suffer, including:

  • Jaw pain
  • Headaches
  • Damaged or broken teeth

When injected into the main muscle responsible for teeth grinding, Botox can cause it to relax and weaken, thus reducing the symptoms of this condition.

2. Hyperhidrosis

If you have ever dealt with excessive sweating (also known as hyperhidrosis), you know just how embarrassing and uncomfortable it can be, and how it can affect your self-esteem in social situations. Hyperhidrosis can affect various parts of your body, including:

  • Hands
  • Feet
  • Face
  • Underarms

Using Botox in the affected areas can provide relief because it impedes the release of the chemicals responsible for activating the body’s sweat glands and initiating perspiration.


3. Facial and Neck Spasms

Do you suffer from uncontrollable movement of your face or neck muscles? By disrupting nerve messages to those muscles and causing temporary muscle paralysis, Botox can be a very effective solution for issues such as involuntary twitching and spasming of eyelids and other facial areas.

4. Migraines

In 2010, Botox was FDA-approved for the treatment of chronic migraines and it works by reducing abnormal muscle contractions. The injection points are often similar to those for wrinkle relaxation, so a few less facial lines could be a welcome bonus from this treatment.
