Many women in Tennessee are already familiar with the rejuvenating effects of Botox. With one series of injections, the forehead wrinkles and laugh lines you’ve fretted over for years are all but erased, leaving you with smooth, creaseless skin. However, as we’ve touched on before, there are many other applications for these transformative injectables. In the past, we’ve reported that Botox has been shown to ease migraines, prevent excessive sweating and even manage bladder issues. Now, new research has revealed yet another benefit of Botox.

According to a press release from Loyola University Health System, researchers found that Botox may be able to counter some of the effects of facial nerve issues caused by Bell’s Palsy and other conditions.

“Botox can improve the symmetry of the face and reduce muscle contractures and spasms. Botox also is effective for platysmal banding – vertical lines that develop in the neck as a result of muscle contractions,” the press release states.

Dr. Matthew Kircher explained that he routinely offers Botox treatments to patients with facial nerve disorders to provide some relief from the spasms and other symptoms.

“While we can never make the face perfect, we have found Botox to be extremely effective,” he said, adding that it could dramatically improve the quality of life for his patients.
