Other Uses of Botox
Excessive sweating

As I discussed in my Botox for excessive sweating post, you can eliminate underarm sweating with Botox! The palms, feet, and face can also possibly be treated.

Migraine headaches

Migraine sufferers can get relief by getting Botox injections into the back or sides of the head, forehead or brow area.

Sculpt the face

Skilled injectors, like Dermatologist Dr. Brandt (the largest user of Botox in the US) use Botox to sculpt the face, turning up the nose, lifting the eyebrows to enlarge the eyes, and adding the illusion of volume in strategic areas.

Pout the lips, and turn up corners of mouth

As little as 1 unit of botox can be injected under the bottom lip to puff it out, creating the appearance of a pouty lip. I had the lip treatment done, and did notice a visible difference in my bottom lip. Botox can also be injected into the corners of the mouth to slightly turn them up, creating a more pleasant appearing smile.

Relax bands in neck

As we age, some people develop vertical bands in the neck, which can be softened with Botox. The effect can also simulate a neck lift, if a lot of excess skin is not present.

Dimpled chin

Botox can relax the muscles in the chin, reducing the appearance of “golf ball chin” as it is sometimes referred.

Enlarged prostate

Men who have had their prostate injected with Botox have seen a decrease in its size, as well as relief from some of the side effects associated with an enlarged prostate.

Muscle spasms and eye twitching

Several types of muscle spasms can be treated with Botox – involuntary eyelid closure, eye twitching, face, jaw and neck spasms, vocal chord spasms, and even stuttering can be lessened with Botox injections.


I currently suffer from TMJ, which is pain in the jaw, neck and ear. While I’m currently taking medication for it, I’d consider having Botox injected into my TMJ muscles to decrease the tension. I’ve researched this a lot, and was about to get Botox injections for it, before I found a medication that works reasonably well for now.

Overactive bladder

Doctors can inject Botox into the base of the bladder to relieve the problems associated with an overactive bladder.
