Over the years, the number of uses for Botox has skyrocketed. It has been used to treat everything from migraines to depression, even though it was originally created for cosmetic purposes. One of the newest trends in off-label Botox use is designed so you can leave the gym with your hair looking as flawless as when you arrived.
"Blotox," as it's being referred to, involves having Botox injected into the scalp to stop sweating. The name comes from a play on the injectable itself, Botox, and the hair trend called a blowout. A blowout is a service offered by many hair salons and specialty boutiques that involves a professional washing, conditioning and styling your hair. By injecting Botox into your scalp to stop sweating, your blowout will last longer and you can go straight from the gym to your next appointment or activity without needing to wash and style your hair again.
Botox works to stop sweating by blocking the neurotransmitter that signals the sweat glands to turn on. It's been used for years to help patients who suffer from excessive underarm sweat, and now it's helping people stop sweating on their scalp, as well.
Botox for Wrinkles
Botox's abilities really shine through when it comes to treating wrinkles. It's actually the only approved treatment to improve moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows and crow's feet by the eyes.
Patients love the results, and the procedure is quick, easy and non-invasive compared to other cosmetic enhancements.
