Things you might not know about Botox

Botox isn’t just for wrinkles!

Many people think that Botox is just for those wanting to reduce the signs of ageing, but this is not the case. Although a sure-fire way to help those wishing to unwind the clock, Botox is also FDA-approved and works wonders for many other conditions. read on to find out more about Teeth Grinding Treatment Wigan based!


What is Botox?

Botox is injected into particular muscles and temporarily paralyses muscles that cause wrinkles. If you don’t repeatedly move your muscles, you don’t get wrinkles! Botox is often used to treat frown lines, as well as crow’s feet around the eyes. While the muscles are paralysed, the wrinkles and lines stay smooth.

What you didn’t know…

Although Botox seems as though it may be a drawn-out procedure, it can usually be done in 30 mins and under! So even though it’s not permanent, you can undergo treatments with minimal downtime so you can carry on with your normal routine. It is also one of the safest cosmetic procedures on the market.

Teeth grinding

Teeth grinding can be a great cause of discomfort to a lot of people who suffer from facial spasms. Botox can be administered to certain muscles in the face that cause teeth grinding when they spasm!


There are a lot of people who suffer from hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. Botox can improve the symptoms of this. When injected into an area with overactive sweat glands, this condition can be helped for up to six months.


In 2013, Botox received FDA approval to be used as a treatment for migraines. Although no one is quite sure why it eases migraine symptoms, it is a great solution for those who suffer from migraines.
