Botox® is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment on the market thanks to its versatility and efficiency in smoothing out wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet, and also its proven benefits in bettering sweating, spasms and migraines. While most people ask for Botox® to treat the most commonly problematic skin areas, there are some unexpected body parts patients are getting injected.
The reason why people often need Botox® on the scalp area is that it stops excessive sweating efficiently. The procedure is only about 15 minutes and it blocks the communication between the nerve and the sweat gland, thus preventing the glands working and the hair looking like who has just finished swimming only after a simple fitness class.
Injecting the neck area is a great solution to lift the banding skin of the neck that gradually appears as part of aging. This includes injecting the platysma muscle that runs down the length of the neck, with the result of tightening and smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines. Although, this treatment is pretty pricey and requires a highly skilled doctor.
Botox® for armpit can make wonders in case of suffering from hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating during exercise. The procedure is perfect to eliminate baseline sweating in the area – this means that the body will sweats in other places, but normally not in the area of armpits. This treatment lasts about three-five months and many patients swear by it.
4. Hands and feet
Hyperhidrosis is a common problem in the hands and feet as well, which is even more unpleasant than in the armpits. Similar to injecting the scalp, treating the hands (often the fingers) and soles block the chemical signals of the nerves that stimulates sweat glands. This is also a very useful treatment but its price tag is something to bear in mind.
The aim of injecting the stomach is weight loss, for what people do anything. Although, this is the riskiest Botox® treatment with small scientific support – the paralysis of the muscles and vagus nerve can lead to vomiting, digestive problems and breathing issues. For this reason, it requires sedation and the insertion of an endoscope in the mouth, oesophagus and stomach.
Botox® treatment for the buttocks also serves to end excessive sweating in the pant crease line. It is a great way for those who perspire in the groin, perineal area and buttocks and help them get rid of uncomfortable moments in the gym.
It seems that the possibilities of Botox® are literally unlimited, at least as long as results are pleasant and charming. In any case, the most important thing is to find a very skilled, qualified and experienced doctor who can treat even these delicate parts of the body.
