Botox has been on the market for years. And not only has it been on the market for a long time but it has also managed to maintain popularity among patients— and with good reason! Not only is Botox considered to be a miracle worker for cosmetic reasons like filling in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and forehead. But Botox has recently in past years received a lengthy amount of medical attention for helping ease pain caused by migraines and TMJ, and even helping to stop people with severe underarm sweat. Read on to learn more about the miracle of Botox.
Migraines plague millions of people each year and can be quite debilitating— leaving people having to leave work early, sit in the dark, and basically pray for their migraine to quickly subside. However, doctors have discovered that Botox injections can actually help to alleviate this pain and get people feeling back to their normal selves again. Approved by the FDA to treat migraines, multiple injections will be administered in the head and neck to stop headache symptoms for up to three months. If you suffer from migraines multiple times a week, the thought of a headache free life for three months might sound too good to be true, but it isn’t.
TMJ or Temporomandibular joint disorder, is a disorder that causes pain, swelling, and discomfort around the jaw bone causing patients sometimes with the inability to chew or even open their mouth. With really know treatment options available other than surgery, doctors everywhere were pleased to discover that Botox can be used to help treat symptoms of TMJ. By simply being injected into the muscles around the jaw, Botox causes the muscles to relax and untighten, leaving patients feeling better than ever.
3. Underarm Sweat
Sweating under your arms is normal, but some people suffer from excessive underarm sweat that can be downrigth embarrassing. If you are one of those people, you might be a candidate for Botox injections for under your arms. By injecting your underarms with Botox, the chemical signals from the nerves which cause sweat glands to be stimulated are blocked— leaving you with dryer armpits all day long.
As you can see, Botox really is a miracle worker for many people. Not only can it help individuals look great but it can help people feel great as well.
