Non-Cosmetic Uses for Botox

botoxBotox is perhaps the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment. But many people do not realize that Botox can do more for you than improve your appearance. Here are a few of the more non-cosmetic ways Botox can be used.

Eye Spasms

There are a number of different conditions that might cause eye spasms, but often they must be treated as a separate symptom. If you have chronic eye spasms, your doctor might talk to you about eyelid surgery. Botox can help prevent eye spasms temporarily  so that you can be comfortable without invasive surgery. Botox is also safe to be repeated as often as necessary, usually about every four months.


Many doctors are now recommending Botox for chronic migraines. Some migraines may be deterred with strategically injected Botox. Again, the treatment needs to be repeated every few months, but most patients agree that Botox decreases the number of days they have a migraine each month.

Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating without a known cause is a big problem for some patients. There are several medical conditions that can cause excessive sweating, but if these have been ruled out the diagnosis is usually hyperhidrosis, or simply excessive sweating of an unknown cause.

When this is the case, Botox can be used to effectively decrease sweating to a reasonable level. The Botox does not stop you from sweating completely, so your body will still be able to keep itself cool.
