We all know that Botox works wonders when it comes to smoothing fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines between the eyes and crow’s feet around the eyes. But what most don’t know is that Botox can be used for treating other areas on the face and neck to soften lines and relax muscles. It’s also used to treat a variety of medical issues. Read this blog to find out more!

Severe Underarm Sweating

We all know how hot it can be during those California summers. Sometimes deodorant just isn’t enough. If you have problems with severe underarm sweating, Botox may be a solution for you! In studies, it has been found to reduce the amount of underarm sweating for as long as 201 days, more than 6 months, with just a single treatment.

A Gummy Smile

When you smile does your lip elevate above your teeth, exposing your gums? Some people call this a “gummy smile.” An injection of Botox into the upper lip can easily correct this so-called “gummy smile.”

Uncontrollable Blinking

Some of us suffer from uncoordinated eye movements and uncontrollable blinking. These are two conditions that Botox can help! It is injected into the affected muscles and can relax and reduce the severity of this uncontrollable blinking condition.

Strabismus, a condition that causes the eyes to move separately and can create double vision, can also be treated with Botox. For those severely impacted by this condition, Botox may be able to restore normal vision and allow the patient to resume activities like driving.

An Overactive Bladder

Does it seem like you have to go to the bathroom every five minutes? Or you have leakage or the sudden urge to go? Botox can help your overactive bladder.

Injected into the bladder muscles by a urologist, Botox may be able to reduce the symptoms and severity of overactive bladder. In clinical trials, it was shown to reduce the number of daytime accidents by almost half, a big reduction in this embarrassing problem.

Chronic Migraines

If you suffer from migraines, you know how miserable they can be. When a migraine does strike (and for many with migraines, this happens far too often), it can last for days, leading to missed work, canceled appointments, stressed relationships and even hospitalization.

Botox is often used as a preventative treatment for chronic migraines. It is injected every 12 weeks and can reduce the number of headache days per month.
