What is Botox? Surely you've seen commercials or know a neighbor that has tried it. But do you actually know how Botox works and all the things it can help with?
Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows.
Botox is best known for its most routine use, which is to smooth out wrinkles and help to turn back the clock on aging.
This quick and popular treatment has revolutionized the medical field.
But, many people don't know about some of the other great uses of Botox and how the wonder injections can make a huge difference in your everyday life.
According to Allergan, the manufacturer of Botox, Botox is the first and only FDA-approved preventive treatment for Chronic Migraine.
Botox is also the only treatment for people with Chronic Migraine that can help prevent headaches and migraines before they even start--something that many patients of the Cosmetic Skin Institute can attest to.
If you suffer from constant migraines, which are a type of headache that may begin as a dull ache and then turn into a constant, throbbing pain, Botox could be just what you need to alleviate the pain.
According to Allergan, unlike acute treatments, which are taken to treat a headache or migraine once it's already begun, Botox is said to have the ability to prevent headaches and migraines before they even start.
Like migraine headaches, most people don't know that Botox can help with Hyperhidrosis--or excessive sweating.
When used to help alleviate excessive sweating, Botox is injected into the skin to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating (severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis).
For some people, excessive sweating can be a sign of thyroid problems, diabetes or infection so it is important to know why exactly you suffer from excessive sweating.
The severity of the sweating condition is usually based on the extent to which it interferes with your daily activities.
