Derived from the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum, Botox is a great method to smooth out facial wrinkles and stop excessive sweating, so long as you don’t mind a slight minimization in facial movements. Originally, Botox was developed for the treatment of spasms, specifically overactive eye spasms. Overtime Botox has been found to have many additional benefits such as:
Treatment of migraine headaches
The scientific reason for the bacterium’s effectiveness is still unknown, alas medical experts think the drug blocks sensory nerves which transmit the neurologic message to the brain. Botox also can relax muscles making them less sensitive to the onslaught of pain. People who have received Botox injections for migraine related problems have reported a drop in headache episodes by at least half and in addition the reoccurring headaches are less severe.
Botox Injection for Men
Men with enlarged prostates have been seen as gaining great relief from Botox. After the drug has been injected directly into the prostate gland, its’ size is reduced thus improving the flow of urine.
Recent Scientific Developments
Medical studies have shown a decrease in pain and improvement in function of patients whom are suffering from arthritis pain. The effects from Botox can last anywhere from three to twelve months.
