So we all know that botox injections are simple and effective anti-ageing wrinkle injections. But did you ever stop to think just what else this anti-wrinkle injectable is used for? So much!
Of course, botox work wonders on both men and women looking to achieve a more youthful and energized complexion by relaxing the facial muscles that create those fine lines and wrinkles we all hate to see when we look in the mirror.
But as well getting rid of fine lines and wrinkles, botox injections are being used to help people feel comfortable in their own skin and get more out of life. Botox therapy is this now also a powerful treatment for some pretty painful medical conditions and its use is helping so many people led healthy, confident and happy lives.
Botox treatment is now available to control hay fever – meaning an end to drawers full of antihistamines, nasal sprays and decongestants and months battling red, itchy, watery eyes, and a constantly congested or runny nose plus sneezing.
Botox for hayfever was first trialed in 2012 and is applied as a gel. It works successfully to cut hayfever symptoms by blocking nerve endings in the nasal passage and reducing inflammation caused by environmental allergens.
Compared with the ongoing cost of medication and doctor’s visits, botox is a cost-effective and pain free way of preventing hay fever. It also provides a long-lasting benefit to patients without side effects.
Also called hyperhidrosis (just saying that alone is enough to make us sweat!), the condition of excessive perspiration or sweating often starts during childhood or teens.
It affects both men and women equally and impacts on every part of sufferer’s life – as well as being physical uncomfortable, many people who suffer from excessive sweating also have low self-confidence and a social awkwardness that effects on their day-to-day lives.
The condition is quite common – TV’s Jessica Rowe is just one of many Australians who suffer from it and has turned to botox for help.
Thankfully, those who sweat more than a lot can enjoy the benefits of botox treatment to paralyse the sweat glands and prevent excessive sweating for as long as three to six months in armpits, palms of the hands, soles of the feet and even the scalp for head and facial sweating.
Children with Cerebral Palsy
Botox therapy is now also used to temporarily reduce muscle tightness in children with cerebral palsy, a permanent physical condition where the part of the brain that controls movement does not fully develop, affecting muscle control.
Cerebral palsy can make muscles tight and stiff and difficult to move, causing pain and deformity. Targeted botox treatment blocks the junctions between nerves and those stiff muscles, allowing for improved movement as the muscle relaxes.
The results have been impressive, particularly when combined with occupational therapy. Botox provides a better chance at stretching muscles to encourage normal growth and permanently improved range of motion, leading to developmental improvements.
The result? And with improved movement children and the ability to do simple tasks like walk and feed themselves, children are more confident and fulfilled.
Sufferers of chronic migraines and tension headaches have been benefiting from botox injections for quite a while now. Neurologists inject botox to offer pain relief to migraine sufferers with fantastic results. Doctors have determined 31 injection sites for botox, to alleviate pain from 7 muscle areas around the head and neck.
To treat chronic migraines, botox is injected every 12 weeks and PBS funding is available. Because botox injections temporarily block the release of chemicals in the brain associated with the cause of chronic migraine, they can prevent the occurrence of migraine pain and improve a migraine sufferer’s quality of life.
