Alternative Uses For Botox

Botox is more popularly used as a cosmetic treatment for the face. However, it also features other applications. These applications include treatment of a number of diseases related to muscles. Examples of other applications Botox include the following:

  • FOR BRUXISM/TEETH GRINDING/FACIAL SLIMMING

People who grind or clench their teeth or have big jaw muscles may undergo Botox treatment to make their jawline slimmer. Moreover, Botox also works effectively in reducing jaw pain and lessening damage to teeth caused by clenching or grinding.

Botox treats the masseter or jaw muscles by softening them. Pain relief from the treatment becomes noticeable after two weeks. Meanwhile, for facial slimming, the effects become obvious after about six weeks. Results of Botox treatment for such cases may last from 3 to 6 months, with costs of treatment ranging from $200 to $1200.

  • FACIAL SYMMETRY/BELL’S PALSY

Bell’s palsy is a condition when a damaged nerve causes paralysis of one side of the face. Botox can be used to treat this condition as well as other facial asymmetry that may be bothersome for some individuals. Prices for treatment of these conditions may range from $100 to $1200.

  • EXCESSIVE SWEATING

Botox also works effectively in remedying excessive sweating, especially on the armpits, hands, feet, face, head, and buttocks. Meanwhile, gustatory sweating, which is sweating of the face or neck when eating, results from incorrect rewiring of nerves after a dental treatment. This specific condition may also be treated with Botox treatment.

A single Botox treatment works effectively in reducing 70% to 80% of sweating, and results normally last from 6 to 12 months. For treatment of armpits, the costs may range from $1500 to $100.

  • MIGRAINES/TENSION HEADACHES

Research showed that treatment with Botox works effectively in alleviating severe migraines by either complete resolution of symptoms or through improvements, including fewer headaches, less severe headaches, and less medication required for controlling headaches.

Migraine treatment using Botox is priced at $150 to $1000.

  • REPETITIVE STRESS INJURY (RSI)

Some people with RSI have been successfully treated with Botox. Dosage of treatment will vary depending on the patient, but the price ranges from $200 to $500.

  • BROW LIFTING AND MOUTH CORNER LIFTING
