You won’t believe this new way women are using Botox!

We all know that Botox offers the best results for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.

At our Sydney skin clinic we just love the youthful skin-firming results of Botox, and believe nothing comes even close to Botox for getting rid of those forehead wrinkles, eye wrinkles and crow’s feet.

Plus, as a healthcare provider we see everyday how the energising results of Botox treatment can make a real difference to a person’s self-confidence.

But Botox does not just firmer and smoother skin. We have already talked about the other amazing ways Botox can improve a person’s life – treating migraines, helping children suffering from cerebral palsy get more movement. Even giving relief to those with hay fever. And of course Botox effectively treats Hyperhidrosis, or chronic sweating.

How many uses can the original anti-wrinkle cosmetic injectable have?!

Well we have just found yet another cosmetic use for Botox! And this cosmetic treatment using Botox may have to be seen to be believed.

A cosmetic doctor in New York is now using everyone’s favourite anti-wrinkle injection to help women preserve the health and integrity of their hair.

The cosmetic solution? Blotox! Yep, it seems a clinic in New York is offering Blotox to patients who want their blowout to last longer! This style savvy use of Botox has been pioneered for women who want to hit the gym but also avoid the time consuming work of re-washing and having to totally redo their hairstyle too often, and for women who like to extend the amount of days between washes.

Blotox solves this problem works by providing small Botox injections along the scalp and decreasing the amount of sweat produced, which of course prevents that dirty, greasy hair feeling.

Blotox’s biggest fans? Those who follow the anti-shampoo movement or the new beauty focus on avoiding over-washing our hair to embrace the natural oils that our hair produces for healthy hair. Blotox is also said to worthwhile for those women who suffer from hot flushes and are constantly sweating.

So why is Blotox effective?

When Botox is injected around the scalp it helps to decease the amount of sweating the scalp produces. Just as our Skin Perfect clinic is constantly using Botox to effectively help clients improve their lives by preventing underarm sweating, when injected on the scalp Botox works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerve cells that stimulate sweat glands. Because the sweat glands don’t receive any signals, they do not activate. Which means cleaner hair for longer.

So while it may sound strange to use Botox to keep stylish hair, it is a viable use. After all the world’s favourite anti-wrinkle injection has gained popularity for so many skin perfecting uses.

At our Sydney Clinic we are constantly helping clients improve their lifestyle with small Botox injections to control excessive underarm sweating, or improve their appearance by getting rid of treating facial wrinkles with Botox.
