Want to Make Your Blowout Last? Take a Look at Botox…
There are many women that will go to great lengths to achieve a good hair day. In fact, most women likely fit into this demographic. What happens when you have a great hair day going, all of the body you could muster from your mane, and then you remember that you have to hit the gym later that day?
If you’ve been in this situation before, you understand that this great hair day will likely turn into a less than desirable situation once the blood starts to pump in the gym. Even in non-cardio situations, like Barre or Yoga, some women sweat enough to suffer the “fall” of their hair.
According to recent reports, some women are turning to Botox to help maintain that great blowout even after a super session at the gym. It turns out that the benefits from Botox go beyond wrinkles; actually Botox has been used for years to help prevent sweaty hands, underarms, and feet – in addition to the wrinkle releasing effects. The injections work by interrupting the transmissions between sweat glands and neurons.
Aside from the benefits regarding wrinkles and sweat production, it has also been reported that the drug can help with hair loss. Patients already using the product for the sweat reducing benefits are pleased to hear about the growing number of benefits associated with using the product.
The injections are reported to work on reduction of sweat production for approximately 6 – 12 months, which can be up to twice as longer than those who are using the drug for wrinkle reduction. Doctors point out that each case and patient is different, so while the injections might cause complete sweat reduction in some, others might only report less sweating.
The costs associated with the treatment can be up to $1,500 in some cases, but already scores of women are getting behind the treatment and don’t mind the cost. According to many, the time saved in having to wash the hair again and re-style is enough to justify the once per year activity.
