Many men and women have been interested in or have undergone a Botox procedure. The most common use of Botox is to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but there are other benefits of Botox that many people are unaware of. From migraines to muscle spasms, Botox is a procedure that delivers much more than just a facelift.
The Beginning of Botox
Botox injections were originally developed as a treatment for involuntary muscle spasms. Derived from the clostridium botulinum bacteria, Botox could freeze muscle spasms. Many patients were finding this particularly useful for the treatment of eye spasms.
It didn’t take long for people to discover that these injections could also be used cosmetically, to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet and other facial wrinkles. Botox is now also used to remove lines around the eyes, eyebrows, nose, and mouth for a more youthful appearance.
Making Migraines Disappear
Botox has also been proven to alleviate migraine pain. Imagine no longer needing to take painkillers or other medications that often carry dangerous side effects. If you suffer from consistent headaches and migraines, you may be surprised to learn that Botox can relieve migraine pain by blocking the nerve signals sending pain messages to the brain. The muscle relaxation that Botox offers also helps to relieve the plaguing pain of all-too-common tension headaches.
Botox is useful in treating extreme sweating. Typically treated with prescription antiperspirants, hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating can be embarrassing and disturbing. Botox provides a safe and effective alternative to treat severe cases. Your first Botox procedure could reduce your sweating for several months.
Men Benefit from Botox, Too!
Studies have shown that men with enlarged prostates may experience significant relief with Botox. Botox is injected directly into the prostate gland to reduce its size, improving the flow of urine and keeping a block to the sensory nerves in the area, providing men with relief for years.
Botox also reduces a man’s susceptibility to urinary tract infections (UTIs) and reduces their need to urinate frequently. Incontinence, the lack of control over urination due to an over-active bladder, can be embarrassing and frustrating for many people. Botox injections have been shown to provide help for men suffering from incontinence. Botox offers long-term results without the use of prescription drugs; it’s no wonder many men are opting for this treatment.
