Botox Uses You May Not Know About

January 30, 2023

There are many popular cosmetic uses for botox and fillers that immediately comes to mind: crow's feet, forehead wrinkles, laugh lines, etc. But there are also just as many uses for these injectables. And with the growing popularity of cosmetic treatments and procedures, it is nice to know about other options for injecting botox or fillers.


People shuddering from TMJ experience pain and discomfort due to problems with their jaw joints and muscles. Botox relaxes the muscles so they do not cause further discomfort or pain in the area of the body.

Cervical Dystonia (Neck Spasms)

Cervical dystonia is a disorder that causes involuntary and painful neck muscle contractions that cause your head to twist uncontrollably to one side or tilt forward or backward. Botox works by relaxing overactive muscles so they do not contract as much as before.

Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes an abnormal amount of sweating in the underarms, palms, or soles of the feet. Botox injections are given directly into affected areas such as underarms, hands, and feet to block signals of nerves that stimulate the sweat glands so they do not produce sweat.

Cosmetic Applications:

  • Gummy Smiles - excessive gum tissue display above the top teeth when smiling
  • Dimpled Chin - dimple textures on the chin
  • Bunny Lines - lines on either side of the nose when smiling
  • Vertical Lip Lines - lines above the lips that run vertically and sometimes deep

Botox is a fantastic product that works to rejuvenate aging faces and change lives for the better. Speak with a registered and certified healthcare provider who can advise you on the procedures that will best suit your safety and health.
