3 Unusual Things Botox is Used For

botox valparaiso | injectables indianaBotox is one of the most— if not the most— popular injectables available on the cosmetic surgical market. By temporarily paralyzing the muscles in your face, Botox causes the fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes and on your forehead to soften— leaving you with a more youthful looking appearance. And although Botox is considered to be a wonder drug in the cosmetic field, did you know that Botox is also used to treat other more unique things such as excessive sweating and migraines? Read on to learn more!

Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating may sound like something out of an episode of “I Love Lucy” but it is an actual health condition that many individuals unfortunately suffer from. By overproducing sweat, this disorder can cause your sweat glands to work overtime and cause your shirts to become drenched almost instantly. However, by getting Botox injections directly into your underarms, you can help to paralyze your sweat glands and prevent them from overproducing that sweat that is causing you embarrassment.


Migraines can cause individuals to miss out on work, become dizzy, or just be unable to function like a normal adult. In fact, migraines can be so debilitating that it can cause patients to miss out on everyday activities due to the immense pain they are suffering from. Luckily, since being introduced to the market, Botox is an effective drug that is used to help individuals who suffer from chronic migraines. By preventing migraines from occurring before they even start, Botox helps to reduce migraines by over 50%.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder, or TMD, is a disorder that causes the temporomandibular joint to become swollen, irritated, and painful— leaving patients with inability to talk, chew, or move their jaw normally. Botox works to treat TMD by relaxing the jaw muscles and giving patients the relief that they need to function normally once again.
