4 Interesting Ways to Use Botox

Posted on September 19, 2016 by Ella Fedonenko

Over the years, Botox has become the gold standard beauty product for treating lines on the forehead and between the brows. It seems like Botox is practically everyone’s secret weapon for fighting wrinkles—but that’s not the only thing it’s used for. There are other ways to use Botox and they may surprise you.

1. Get Younger-Looking Eyes

You probably already know that Botox can be used to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet. But we are also using this treatment to perform brow lifts. As we age, the eyelids tend to droop or become “hooded”, which can make you look tired and older than your years. Few injections of Botox above the brow can actually lift it, for a more youthful look.

2. Banish Migraine

37 million americans suffer from migraine headaches. Instead of taking a pill, why not try Botox for migraines? Botox can be injected into the areas where migraine sufferers tend to feel most of the pain -like temples, neck, and shoulders. This FDA-approved treatment works by reducing muscle tension and blocking the pain receptors in them. It also has fewer side effects compared to many oral migraine medications.

3. Reduce Sweating

People who suffer from excessive sweating can also benefit from Botox. Botox can be injected in the areas where we sweat the most (like scalp and armpits). It works by blocking the chemical that’s responsible for stimulating sweat glands. This procedure takes less than 15 minutes, and many patients have found that the treatment works so well that they no longer need to wear a deodorant.

4. Smooth your neck

Neck bands—those unsightly vertical lines around the neck—are another interesting use of Botox. Just as Botox fights wrinkles on your face, lines on the neck can be treated with this amazing product, as well. Compared to surgery, it’s a much more affordable (not to mention less painful) way to achieve a smooth, beautiful neck.
