Six Facts You Never Knew about Botox

Six Facts You Never Knew about Botox

Botox® is well known for being the go-to treatment for eliminating fine lines and wrinkles, but did you know it can also treat other conditions such as incontinence and excessive sweating? Botox® can do so much more than just wrinkle removal and the experts at Orange Blossom Aesthetics in New Port Richey FL are here to help. Keep reading to find out the top six facts you never knew about Botox®, and to learn more about what it can do for your health.

Six Facts You Never Knew about Botox®

1. It is Actually One of the Safest Procedures Available

As far as injections and fillers go, Botox® is by far the most tested and FDA regulated injection available. This makes it one of the safest procedures on the market today.

2. Men Use It Too

Botox® use is commonly attributed to middle-aged women, but they aren’t the only ones chasing the fountain of youth. In recent years, men have been getting just as much, if not more, than women. Their usage has gone up a staggering 337% since 2000!

3. It Can Treat Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating can be an irritating symptom of a variety of different health conditions, but thankfully you don’t have to live with it. These injections are especially effective for people prone to excessive sweating anywhere on their body. Injections are placed into the sweat glands to relax the muscles, stopping excessive sweating at the source.

4. It Can Even Treat Incontinence

Botox® isn’t just reserved for fine lines and wrinkles, it can also treat incontinence. Injections are placed into the muscles of the bladder to help regulate an overactive bladder.

5. It Can Help Chronic Pain Patients

For patients suffering from chronic muscle tension and pain, this treatment may be the answer to your troubles. When Botox® is injected into the muscles that are causing you pain, it actually blocks nerve signals that lead to muscle tightening. It is especially helpful for people who suffer from chronic neck pain, and a 2012 study confirmed that these injections improved pain levels for patients with chronic neck pain.

6. It Was Discovered in the 1800s

This treatment is commonly thought of as a modern procedure, but it actually has roots in the 1820s when it was first discovered by Dr. Justinus Kerner.
