Surprising Health Benefits Of Aesthetic Injections
Aesthetic injections have benefits beyond making you look good. They also have some surprising health benefits that can help you feel better too.
You are probably familiar with Botox injections for reducing wrinkles, but did you know Botox injections can reduce excessive sweat and treat migraines? Botox has been FDA-approved to treat migraines by blocking pain transmission pathways between the brain and the spinal cord. When injected into the armpits, Botox paralyzes sweat glands in those with hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). Hyperhidrosis injections are also useful for sweaty palms and feet. Finally, Botox is often used to treat spasticity associated with strokes, head injuries or other problems that cause involuntary contractions. It is even possible to use Botox to treat bunions!
The tiny needles used with cosmetic microneedling induce a cellular level reaction that increases collagen and elastin production to heal the “wounded” areas. The stimulation of the collagen in the subdermal region has surprising sensory benefits. This process can be focused on the temple area to help reduce tension headaches by stimulating nerve endings.
Dermal fillers are usually used to reduce wrinkles by filling the lines with a hyaluronic acid formula to stimulate collagen production. When injected into scars or wounds it will perform the same job and make them look smoother and less noticeable. Hyaluronic acid is often used during eye surgery to replace eye fluids during retina reattachments or corneal transplants. A similar molecule is used by many orthopedic surgeons to improve knee joints afflicted with arthritis.
