Five Botox Facts That Might Surprise You

Botox or Botulinum toxin has come a long way since its inception almost 17 years ago. The Botox industry has in fact touched the one billion mark in terms of sales in the recent years. While the treatment involves temporary pain, the outcome can be life-changing. Read on to find some unknown and interesting facts about the Botox treatment.

1) While the future of Botox treatments looks good, the same cannot be said about its past

Botox came into existence by accident is a well-known fact. But not many people are aware of that Botox was born while treating cases of food poisoning among Germans. Later on, patients with double vision and crossed eyes were treated with neurotoxin only to find their wrinkles smoothen out within a short time span.

2) Botox helps fight depression –just what every woman needs!

As weird as this may sound, early testing has proved that Botox indeed has a positive impact on depression. Surprised? Well, the connection can be established as follows. Facial muscles and the expressions they render are directly connected with one’s emotions. Botox interferes with such expressions that may ultimately lead to negative emotions.

3) Botox plays a role in pain management too

Botox was approved by the FDA in 2013 for use in migraine treatments. While some researchers explain that Botox prevent the conducting of pain signal by nerve endings, some believe that the reason is unknown. However, there have been many cases in the past that have been successfully treated for migraine in the past through Botox thus making it a viable option for excruciating pain. Botox can also be used for treating chronic pain in muscles. The Botox injections applied to a particular muscle will tighten the muscle and block the pain signals thus offering effective relief from pain.

4) Botox works well on sweat glands too

Hyperhidrosis is a condition in which an individual sweats profusely for no reason. It is a challenging medical condition and finding an appropriate treatment may be difficult. Botox can be used to treat this condition effectively. Botox is injected into sweat-prone areas (places with active sweat glands like the scalp, armpits and hands) where it temporarily blocks the signals from the nerves that stimulate the secretion of sweat.

5) A complete analysis of one’s medical history must be done prior to receiving Botox treatment

To be eligible for the Botox treatment, patients must inform the treatment center about all prevailing medical conditions related to muscles or the nerves. Any recent cosmetic surgeries, injections or medications must be reported without fail. Allergies or any chronic diseases must also be reported.
