5 Surprising Uses for BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can offer remarkable results for women looking to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated look. However, these non-surgical injections are FDA-approved for off-label treatment of other ailments like spasms, excessive perspiration, and migraines.

Scalp, Armpits, and Buttocks

BOTOX® Cosmetic injections in certain areas of the body can address unsightly excessive sweating. Injections to the buttocks can address issues with sweating in the groin, perineum, buttocks and help reduce sweating in the pant crease line.

Similarly, if sweat has often ruined your freshly finished blowouts, BOTOX® Cosmetic can be applied to the scalp to address this issue, allowing some women to wash their hair and experience frizz less frequently.


BOTOX® Cosmetic has also been FDA-approved to treat symptoms of cervical dystonia, a disorder characterized by neck spasms. Additionally, these cosmetic treatments can also serve as an alternative to a neck lift, which addresses the banding and sagging of the neck that occurs as people age.

Research has shown that using BOTOX® Cosmetic to treat neck pain could be more beneficial than oral pain medications due to the fact that the effects of the injection are local and do not cause the type of side effects commonly associated with oral pain medications, such as sedation, fatigue, and dizziness.


BOTOX® Cosmetic injections in the bladder are another example of a non-cosmetic treatment for individuals suffering from urge incontinence or an overactive bladder. A urologist can administer this treatment, and patients typically report pain similar to that of a menstrual cramp.
