Medical Uses for Botox

Botox is the popular miracle cure for wrinkles that has exploded in popularity in the past decade. While the science of Botox use on the general public was largely pioneered in swanky Beverly Hills salons and clinics many people do not know that there are uses for this medication other than wrinkles. Aside from it's beautifying properties injections can also have a wonderful effect curing headaches, curbing excessive sweating and even helping with TMJ or temporomandibular joint disorders- also known as jaw clenching. In the following article we will go more in depth over how the treatment can help with these medical issues.

As a Cure for Hyperhidrosis and Excessive Sweating

When your body sweats it is getting rid of excessive water and saline and basically telling you to drink more water. However due to hormones or other disorders some individuals may sweat more than others. Sweat comes out through pores in your face which are also the source of the wrinkles that trouble many folks getting older. It can help with your excessive sweating problems safely by closing those pores and preventing sweat from coming out in annoying places like your armpits or on your forehead. If you have tried other methods or even nothing at all consult an expert to see if your excessive medical sweating may be helped by treatment. Learn more here.

How it Can Help Headaches and Chronic Migraines

Much of the pain and stress that can come from migraines or headaches can come from the associated symptoms. Tightening of the jaw or neck or constant rubbing can be almost as painful as the actual headache. Injections into target areas can actually reduce a huge amount of stress on your face and neck which can lead to a feedback loop that will help the medicine to relieve or at least reduce your migraine or headache. Typically a professional will give you a 12 to 15 month regimen of treatments to ease your migraines.

TMJ Relief Using Injections

Teeth grinding has multiple causes. There are some causes that you may be able to have a medical injection to relieve your suffering from TMJ also commonly known as teeth grinding. Just like the rest of your face there are a number of muscles in and around your teeth that can cause your teeth to rub into each other and grind nightly. If you are lucky a couple well placed shots from a trained practitioner can help to ease those muscles and hopefully decrease significantly or get rid of totally your teeth grinding problems.
