Botox Goes Beyond

Recently, I started to explore other uses of Botox, beyond its prowess to smooth out expression lines and wrinkles. My curiosity kicked off because a close friend of mine proclaimed that Botox took away a longstanding pain she had over one side of her face for many years. Her neurologist told her it was trigeminal neuralgia and, then, she needed strong painkillers to control her pain, which also made her very drowsy. At her regular session of Botox for her frown lines, she complained to her plastic surgeon that her neuralgia was particularly bad that day. Her surgeon suggested using Botox for that and she never looked back. Now she has no more pain and completely stopped her painkillers. This is thanks to Botox’s ability to block neurotransmitters, chemicals that fire off nerves and muscles. Here are 5 uses of Botox that may benefit you.

Smooth Out Lines

By relaxing facial muscles, it soften expression lines such as crows feet, frown line and forehead creases. Some men are also requesting to smooth out their scrotum, aka Scrotox!


 

Botox Facelift

2 types of muscles play a game of tug-of-war on our face, those the lift the face up and those that drag it down. The clever trick of using Botox to weaken the drag muscles will make the lift muscles work more better, effectively giving the face a lift.


 

Jaw Reduction

Botox injections into the masseter muscles, which sits at the sides of the face, can slim a square jawline.


 

Pain Relief

Apart from trigeminal neuralgia, Botox can alleviate migraine attacks. When Botox is injected around pain fibres responsible for migraines, it blocks the release of neurotransmitters and triggering of pain transmissions.


 

Curb Sweatiness

An FDA approved use of Botox is excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, reducing sweaty palms and wet underarms. Heard of a Blowtox? Women are getting botox injected into their scalps to control scalp sweating and oiliness so they can prolong their salon blowouts.
