Surprise Uses For Botox Part 1

Dr Hennessy Academy has been researching the surprise uses for botox.  At our aesthetic training academy, we find out new information regarding surprise treatments from across the pond. Some of these may surprise you, but please consult a professional before considering any of these options

Overactive Bladder

Having an overactive bladder is more common in women than men (sigh, typical), which means a life full of Depends could be in your future. Unless you use Botox, that is! Turns out incontinence can be controlled with Botox thanks to its ability to relax the bladder muscle. The best part is that you may only need a single injection per year! Yep, one and done, y’all.

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is uncomfortable, itchy, and not exactly easy on the eyes. Luckily, this flaky skin condition could be a thing of the past thanks to –– you guessed it –– our BFF Botox. Though psoriasis is technically incurable, Botox minimizes the activity of inflammatory cells that bring on outbreaks! #winning.

Painful Sex

Time to turn up the heat and bring Botox into the bedroom! Unfortunately, many women suffer from painful intercourse, but Botox can help loosen things up by injecting the handy remedy into tense or irritated muscles. For those of you who are horrified by the thought of a needle in your lady parts, fear not –– the procedure is relatively painless and only necessary about once every three months. Definitely worth it for a romantic night with your partner…

Depression
If you’re one of the thousands of Americans who suffer from depression, Botox could be your ticket to happiness. Doctors have found that injections in the forehead may help patients with depression by interrupting feedback from the facial muscles to the brain, which is said to be involved in the development of negative emotions. (Side effects for the procedure include flawless wrinkle-free skin.)

Excessive Sweating
Summer is officially upon us, which means we’re in for a solid three months of tanning! For those who suffer from excessive sweating, however, summer isn’t always the sunniest time of the year. Thankfully, Botox could be a saving grace for those attempting to manage this condition, which is officially known as axillary hyperhidrosis. Studies show that just a handful of injections can reduce underarm sweat for up to TWO years. Um, where do we sign up?

Weight Loss
Looking to shed a few pounds? Two words: Gastric Botox. This endoscopic procedure fast-tracks weight loss by using Botox to relax stomach muscles, which in turn helps to make a patient feel full more quickly (and for much longer)! Unlike a super-invasive gastric bypass surgery, Gastric Botox is an outpatient procedure that takes about 15 minutes. Don’t mind if we do!
