Not Just Cosmetic: Surprising Health Benefits of Botox

Many people associate Botox with aging and wrinkles. However, this injectable treatment can be used for a variety of other purposes, such as weight loss and migraine relief. Below are some surprising health benefits of Botox treatment.

1. Help With Weight Loss

Botox may help individuals struggling with weight loss. A Stomach Botox injection relaxes the stomach muscles and helps patients feel full longer after eating. Since it causes fewer contractions in the stomach, food stays in the stomach longer after eating. This provides an effective way to reduce appetite -- often resulting in weight loss.

2. May Help With Migraines

Migraines are a type of headache that can be quite debilitating. If a patient receives regular Botox injections, they may find that their migraines become less frequent and less severe. People who received Botox in clinical studies experienced eight or nine fewer headaches per month, according to

3. Eye Disorders

Many people experience eye disorders such as crossed eyes, lazy eyes, twitching eyes, or eyelid spasms. Botox injections can help treat these disorders. It can also treat a condition called blepharospasm, which is when the eyelid muscles contract uncontrollably.

4. Overactive Bladders

An overactive bladder is a condition that causes people to feel the urge to urinate more frequently than they would like. This feeling can occur even when the bladder isn't full. Injecting Botox into the bladder can help to relax the muscles and reduce the urge to urinate.

5. Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis, is a condition that causes people to sweat more than is necessary. This can be a great source of embarrassment and can make people very self-conscious. One common symptom of this condition is sweaty palms. Botox treats hyperhidrosis by blocking the chemical that signals to the sweat glands to produce sweat.


When Botox is injected into the muscles, it relaxes them. This can provide many people with pain relief. Patients suffering from conditions like fibromyalgia or muscle spasms may be able to benefit from Botox. It can also be used to treat conditions like chronic back and neck pain.

Cornerstone Urgent Care Center recommends that everyone, regardless of age, visit their doctor for a physical exam every year. If you experience any of the health problems above, be sure to discuss them with your doctor at your next exam, and ask if Botox treatment is right for you.
