Botox is no more a celebrity secret or a red carpet treatment. These days botox injections are the most popular aesthetic procedure opted by a large number of men and women from every walk of life. Since it is used more as a preventive measure than corrective measure a growing number of young adults and adults are opting for these procedures.
Botox injections are almost painless and have no serious side effects. The entire procedure is quick, convenient, and safe. In contrast to surgery, the results are temporary so you are not committing to something for a lifetime, you can go back to normal if you are not happy with results. However, in the hands of a certified expert, most men and women get satisfactory results and come back for touch-ups when results start to fade away after some months.
Although now popular for aesthetic and cosmetic reasons, Botox injections were initially introduced to treat muscular spasm, more specifically the eye twitches and another facial spasm. The cosmetic industry saw an opportunity and adopted the procedure for reducing the superficial wrinkles and slowing down the signs of aging. However, there are other fascinating uses of Botox injection that are maybe not as popular but very useful. Here we will discuss the five such benefits of Botox injections.
1. Corrects Crossed eyes
Botox injection has long been used for the treatment of various eye muscle-related problems like twitches and spasm, but one of the aesthetic use is the correction of crossed eyes. It relaxes the defective muscle temporarily which causes the cross-eye and thus correcting the crossed eyes.
2. Effective treatment for chronic migraines
When botox is injected in the forehead, neck, and shoulders, it relaxes the tensed up muscles, causing stress-related muscular fatigue and pain to reduce. It is effective in reducing stress-related headaches. After receiving the botox injections many patients have reported fewer episodes of migraine, a decrease in the intensity of migraine symptoms like nausea and sensitivity to light. This made dealing with migraines much easier.
3. Relieves chronic neck pain
Chronic neck pain and chronic back pain is a common problem for people doing computer-related desk jobs and is also a major cause of sick leaves in offices. According to the latest studies supports that botox injections in the neck muscles relieve the chronic neck pain and results last anywhere from three to six months.
4. Lifts Eyebrows
Drooping brows give you a permanently tired and grumpy looking face. There are biological reasons behind this problem and it is could be inherited, due to malnutrition or due to ageing. Botox can correct the issues if it is due to a muscular problem. This can help you look pleasant and reliable.
5. Prevents Excessive Sweating in armpits
Underarms sweating does not only causes bad odor but it also often leaves unpleasant looking sweat stains on shirts and dresses. When doctors noticed that patients who received botox on their face sweat less, the experimented it with armpits, hands, and feet sweat. Positive results lead many doctors to offer this solution to the public. This remedy became increasingly popular among dentists, gynaecologists, and aestheticians who often find themselves in close proximity with patients, their armpits open, and hovering over the faces of patients. A sweaty armpit with a bad odour can be embarrassing under such circumstances. A botox injection in the armpit can prevent this.
