5 Surprising Alternative Uses for BOTOX & Dermal Fillers
Did you know that BOTOX® and dermal filler injectables can do much more than reduce the appearance of those pesky fine lines and wrinkles? From stopping severe sweating in the hands and armpits to giving your feet a little extra cushion, these injectable treatments boast many cosmetic and medical benefits. Check out these five surprising uses for BOTOX and dermal fillers:
Rejuvenate your hands with Radiesse. Did you know that, after your face, your hands are one of the biggest culprits when it comes to revealing your age? As we get older, our hands lose volume, which accentuates veins, makes tendons prominent, and creates a hollowed appearance. Luckily, we can help you can turn back the clock with Radiesse® hand rejuvenation. A single treatment can restore normal volume, providing your hands with a smooth, youthful appearance in a matter of minutes. Results last for a year or longer.
Reduce sweating in hands and armpits. Chronic sweating can be an awkward and embarrassing condition that persists against even the strongest antiperspirant. For those suffering from excessive sweating in the armpits or palms of the hand, BOTOX injections can provide relief. Similarly to the way BOTOX paralyzes forehead muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, it can stop sweat production by blocking signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands. One treatment can last up to six months.
Minimize migraine pain with BOTOX. Did you know that BOTOX is an FDA-approved treatment for the debilitating pain of chronic migraines? For those who do not respond well to traditional migraine pain treatment, BOTOX may be an effective alternative treatment option. Treatments are administered every three months for a 15-month period, with multiple doses of BOTOX injected into specific points along multiple areas of the head and upper back. These injections can help to reduce severe migraine symptoms including vomiting, nausea, and sensitivity to sounds, smells, and lights.
Relieve footpad pain with fillers. Dermal fillers are being used to provide a soothing cushion in the balls of the feet to reduce pain, much in the same way they work to plump and volumize your face. A common affliction, footpad pain can be the result of calluses, flat feet, footpad atrophy, and aging. Fillers effectively pad the ball of the foot, which protects the bones, joints, nerves, and tissues from repeated stress and minimizes pain for up to a year after treatment.
Minimize the appearance of neck bands. Neck bands, also known as platysma bands, are a natural result of aging or weight fluctuation. These vertical lines across the neck become more apparent the older we get, making the neck look hollow and aging the upper body. A single BOTOX treatment can greatly reduce the appearance of neck bands, with little to no downtime.
