Is Botox a miracle drug? Or just for anti-ageing?

We’re all aware of the fantastic anti-ageing properties of Botox, but recent articles and research suggest that it could be much more of wonder drug than we initially thought!

We wrote a blog post last year detailing how Sharon Stone risked losing custody of her son because she wanted to inject his feet with Botox to stop them smelling. We don’t really know whether Botox actually works on foot odour, however it was one of the first in a string of other possible uses for this popular anti-ageing product.

In fact rumour has it that a Canadian doctor stumbled across the drug’s face-lifting qualities by accident while treating a patient for a muscle spasm in the eye. The patient then asked to continue receiving treatments because of its fantastic anti-ageing ability!

Other reported uses for Botox include:

  • Reducing migraines and tension headaches
  • Excess perspiration
  • Foot odour
  • Muscle response disorders

However, before you go rushing out and having Botox injections in the hope it will cure all your complaints, you MUST MUST MUST have Botox administered by a reputable practitioner who has lots of experience. All cosmetic treatments carry risks and unless done properly, Botox is no exception.

Do your research, because there are many therapists out there who have limited experience – people can now go on a one-day Botox course and be qualified!
