3 Surprising Ways Botox® Can Help You


Since its introduction to the cosmetic world in the late 1970s, Botox® has become an extremely common treatment to prevent and reverse the signs of aging. However, Botox® is also an effective treatment for medical conditions like hyperhidrosis, migraines, and strabismus. Botox® is a non invasive procedure, requiring no surgery, anesthesia, or downtime.

Medical Conditions that can be treated with Botox® are:

  1. Hyperhidrosis

    • Hyperhidrosis is excessive sweating under the arms and can be an extremely embarrassing condition.
    • Botox® treatment: Your technician will apply a numbing cream to the area, and then carefully inject the Botox® into multiple sweat glands in your armpit. The Botox® works to block the signal from the nerves to the sweat glands to reduce sweat production.
    • Results: Over 80% of Botox patients notice a reduction in sweat production by at least half. The results typically last from 6 to 8 months.
  2. Migraines

    • Migraines aren’t regular headaches; they are much worse and can cause severe and often debilitating pain that is usually focused on one side of the head or behind the eyes. Chronic migraine sufferers can experience 15 or more migraine days each month.
    • Botox® treatment: Your Botox® specialist will carefully inject the Botox treatment using a fine needle. The treatment is usually administered in 2 separate sessions over 12 weeks.
    • Results: Botox® can stop migraines before they start, eliminating an average of 8 to 9 migraine days for regular migraine sufferers. You can expect the best results with regular follow-up treatments every 12 weeks.
  3. Strabismus

    • Strabismus is defect in the eye muscles, resulting in misaligned eyes that do not look in the same direction. If you have strabismus, you will notice that one eye can look forward, but the other eye looks up or to the side, making it difficult to focus and see clearly.
    • Botox® treatment: Since strabismus results from a muscle problem in the eyes, your Botox® technician will inject the treatment into the muscles of the dominant eye, allowing the overactive muscles to relax so that both eyes can move correctly together.
    • Results: You’ll notice results after 1 to 2 days, with treatment effects that can last as long as 3 to 4 months.
