Azra Aesthetics Clinics in Hampshire & Central London Investigate 8 Surprising Uses For Botox!
Most people associate botulinum toxin injections (also known by the brand name Botox) with the treatment of wrinkles, but did you know that so-called Botox can be used for many other conditions including migraines, underarm sweating and teeth grinding? Read on to find out some more surprising uses for Botox!
#1. Botox Can Improve The Shape Of Your Nose
As we age our nose can begin to drop and become more hooked but Botox can help to lifting the nose. The Botox is injected at the base of the nose in between the nostrils. The result is a more up-tilted nose which will make your whole face appear fresher. Find out more about our Botox treatments here.

#3. Tighten Your Jowls & Neck With Anti-Wrinkle Injections
If your jawline has become less defined with age, a little Botox along the muscles of the jawbone can pull the skin up for a more defined effect. Tiny amounts of Botox can also be injected into the muscles above and below the lines that run around your neck to give you smoother skin. ; as they relax, the skin looks smoother. This is sometimes called the Nefertiti Necklift.
#4. Stop Chronic Migraines
Botox injections can help prevent chronic migraines. A migraine is a type of headache where the person often has an intense throbbing headache and additional symptoms such as nausea, vomiting or increased sensitivity to bright light, noise or smell. Botox injections for migraines are now available via the NHS in some parts of the country after NICE (the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) carried out two large trials and identified that Botox injections reduced the frequency of headache days in both trials.
#6. Stop Grinding Your Teeth With Botox Injections
Botulinum Toxin Type A injections into the Masseter muscles, or chewing muscles, can help prevent teeth grinding (Bruxism) and can also slim down wide, prominent and square jawlines to soften the jawline. Please book a consultation with Dr Asalet if you have any concerns with your facial appearance or issues with teeth grinding.
#7. Improve a Gummy Smile With Botox!
If you dislike your smile, we can help! Botulinum Toxin Type A injections can be placed in the upper lip area to reduce the amount of gum you can see when you smile. Anti-wrinkle injections can also be effective in helping to turn the corners of your mouth upwards if your have a smile that naturally turns down, making you look a little sad.
#8. Excessive Sweating Treatments
Excessive sweating or hyperhidrosis can be treated by injecting Botulinum Toxin Type A into the overactive sweat glands to stop them producing sweat. Most clients see a major reduction in the amount they sweat and some stop sweating completely for several months. Dr Asalet recommends top up injections every few months.
