First things first, What is Botox?
“Botox” is short for Botulinum toxin. It is a naturally occurring protein that causes the muscles of the face to relax, therefore smoothing the wrinkles.
From smoothing out wrinkles to stopping excessive sweat, there are a number of benefits of Botox injections. It is most effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set. For example, “dynamic” wrinkles that appear while you’re moving your face, like frowning.
Did you know that there are health benefits to getting Botox too?
Botox is really good for people with hyperhidrosis, or people who sweat excessively. This is a syndrome that can cause embarrassment and anxiety. It is usually treated with prescription antiperspirants. The long term effect of these antiperspirants is unknown. Botox can balance the problem and relieve excessive sweating for several months at a time.
Botox blocks the release of neurotransmitters that are linked to causing pain. Neurotransmitters are chemicals that carry nerve impulses. To prevent headaches, Botox blocks these signals from reaching the central nervous system and causing the nerves to become highly sensitive.
From our research, we’ve found that people who receive injections for migraines, report the instances of the headaches drop by at least half, if not more. They also report that the headaches are less severe.
More than ever before, men are using Botox to rejuvenate their youthful appearance and stave off the signs of aging. But, did you know that Botox can also provide relief for men with enlarged prostates? By injecting it directly into the prostate gland, problems like urinary tract infections and frequent urination are improved considerably. Botox reduces the size of the gland, thus improving the flow of urine.
