7 Surprising Conditions Botox Can Treat

by on November 20, 2017 | Posted in blog

Botox is often synonymous with cosmetic surgery and treatments. But did you know that when you get your Botox in Stockport you could be treating a whole host of skin conditions? Researchers are just starting to discover the true power of Botox which is leading to innovative new treatment options you just have to know about.

Today we’re taking a look at how our Botox in Stockport could be the treatment you didn’t know you needed. Here are 7 surprising conditions that Botox can help treat.

1. Psoriasis

According to the Psoriasis Association, Psoriasis affects some 3% of the UK population. Characterized as an immune condition that causes symptoms to appear on the skin and inside the joints. This illness causes your skin to replace itself more quickly than it would normally—just a few days instead of up to 28 days. This causes raised plaques to pop up on the skin which results in itchy, scaly skin.

Botox can help. The toxin used in the treatment reduces inflamed cells that lead to flare-ups. This, in turn, reduces symptoms. If you are suffering from Psoriasis, Botox can hold out hope. Contact the Cheadle Facial Aesthetics team for more information about this treatment.

2. To prevent aging

Most people think of Botox as a treatment for wrinkles and fine lines, and while they are correct, what they might not know is that you can use Botox as a preventative tool to ward off wrinkles as you age. While there is some controversy over using Botox in your 20s, it can actually be the best treatment option to prevent premature aging.

Similar to buying a very expensive car that you only drive once in a while, you would still take it out to have it serviced to prevent it from losing its value, you can use Botox to prevent wrinkles from forming on your face.

We highly recommend using it as a treatment option if you are highly animated in your facial expression, spend a lot of time in the sun, or are a smoker.

3. Migraines

You probably did not know that Botox could be used to treat migraines, but research shows there is a lot of promise in this area.

In the United States, the FDA has recently approved of using Botox as a preventative treatment for migraines. Anyone who has over 15 of these headaches per month can reduce that number with just one injection every 12 weeks. Once again, Botox serves as a preventative to keep these awful headaches at bay.

You can learn more about using Botox to treat your migraines at the American Migraine Foundation. It’s fascinating how a toxin can actually prevent pain in those who cannot find relief elsewhere.

4. To treat your smile

Good news for those who suffer from smiles they’re not happy with, Botox can help there too! Particularly for people who have a gummy smile. Gummy smiles are often caused because the upper lip rises too much when people smile. This creates an undesirable effect for some people.

Botox can help by controlling the muscles in the upper lip and weakening them so the lip doesn’t rise as high. Just like with regular Botox injections, the process is in and out and takes a matter of minutes and the results are instantaneous. Of course, you need a qualified professional to perform your injection to reduce negative side effects like too much Botox which can lead to a drooping smile.

5. Bladder problems

People who suffer from incontinence can benefit from Botox in Hale. If you suffer from an intense desire to go to the bathroom frequently, then Botox can limit your overactive bladder problems. Injecting Botox directly into your bladder can reduce symptoms for up to six months.

Even though there are plenty of other treatments available, Botox is a simple, hassle-free method that anyone can use to regain control over their bladder.

6. Teeth Grinding

Botox can also be effective for treating a common condition where you grind your teeth—especially while sleeping. Many people who suffer from this issue do it subconsciously. Botox can weaken your facial muscles just enough so that you can continue to eat normally but not grind your teeth which can be extremely damaging to your jaw and dental health. If you want to reduce pain in your jaw, then consider getting Botox in Stockport to resolve the issue.

7. Depression

Nearly 1 in 6 people in the UK suffer from mental health problems in any given week. Interestingly, Botox has shown some promising results in treating Botox. Research in 2014 showed that half of the people they treated with Botox who suffered from severe depression had fewer depressive symptoms after a single injection in their brow. Researchers believe the connection between our facial expressions and the brain help trigger good feelings which reduce symptoms.
