6 Surprising Places You Can Get Botox

Botox has gained much popularity as an effective treatment against forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, bunny lines and frown lines. It has also been used successfully to treat conditions such as sweating, migraines, and spasms. So here are the more unexpected places you can likely get treated with Botox.

Armpits

When Botox is injected into the armpits it can eliminate baseline sweating in the affected region. You can apply Botox whether you have excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis. After the treatment, you will continue to sweat in other parts of your body but not in the armpits anymore. Botox is a powerful game changer, and the result can last between 3 to 5 months after treatment.

Hands And Feet

Aside from the armpits, another place hyperhidrosis can manifest is on the hands and feet. Botox can be injected into the sole of the feet and palms to block the primary stimulant of the sweat glands. However, note that this could be rather expensive as much units are needed for these treatment areas. You might need between 50 to 100 units of Botox.

Stomach

Botox has since been used as a weight reduction tool on the stomach for ages. However, a recent study has revealed that Botox could also be useful for more obese people as well. It works by blocking the nerve that triggers the feeling of hunger. But the study is not entirely reliable as the subjects were small. Most people will do anything to lose weight fast, and this has made that section of the economy a multi-billion dollar worth of value. So a lot of medical practitioners will be interested. But Botox injection is not entirely safe for use on the stomach because the paralysis of the muscles and vagus nerves could lead to vomiting, bloating, digestive problems and difficulty in breathing. Unlike when Botox is used on the facial muscles, the result is not fatal and will require a repeat treatment after six months. Botox procedures do not fall in place with stomach injection procedures, because it requires sedation and an endoscope needs to be inserted in the mouth, into the stomach, and through the esophagus.

Buttocks

Studies have also revealed that Botox works wonders for who sweat excessively in the grown, buttocks and around the perineal area. It also helps those women sweating in the pant crease line as well.

Scalp

Botox is a good option if you want to stop excessive sweating in your scalp. You might need between 150 to 200 injections to treat it thoroughly. Although this is not a common request from patients.

Neck

As we age, skin banding tends to occur. If you are considering getting a neck lift because of that, maybe you should try Botox. When you inject the platysmal muscles that are in the neck area, it can tighten the muscles and sagging skin, thereby eliminating wrinkles and lines. However, it is costly and requires a skilled professional.
