Botox ‘should be used sparingly’

Sat

Brits warned on over-use of Botox.

While many people view Botox as a quick fix in the fight against ageing, Brits have been warned there could be social drawbacks to its use.

Shami Thomas, PR manager at Transform, said that many people can go too far when having these treatments carried out and it should not be the aim of men or women who have Botox injections to have frozen features.

“The majority of women we see having Botox don’t want or have their entire face frozen. It’s just certain areas that they want treated. That does not mean that they cannot show any facial expressions whatsoever,” she commented.

According to the Sunday Times, however, women who use Botox are unable to display the full range of emotions because of the paralysing nature of the treatment.

Indeed, a recent study carried out by David Havas, a psychologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, recently showed that Botox users struggle to frown, look angry or sad and may even be unable to show empathy.

Botox ‘has a range of uses’

The uses for Botox continue to expand.

Botox injections could have a range of treatment possibilities to improve the health of people suffering a range of conditions, it has been revealed.

The Washington Post reported the injections can be used to help reduce the pain associated with migraines, as well as helping to reduce the effects of an overactive bladder or profuse sweating.

Indeed, back pain can also be eased through the treatment, as can oesophageal spasms and hand tremors.

Elsewhere, the Montgomery Courier recently reported US veterans could soon benefit from Botox treatments to help ease the suffering of those with debilitating limb spasticity.

Dr Stephanie Sneed, director of the Polytrauma/Traumatic Brain Injury Programme, commented: “The purpose of the procedure is to assist patients in facilitating their rehabilitation goals and to reduce the pain caused by intense spasms.”

She added that the treatment can help sufferers reduce the intensity of spasms, as the botulinium toxin numbs areas where it is injected.
