Botox may not only be an excellent aid in the fight against wrinkles, it has also been found to be beneficial in saving the lives of babies born with birth defects.
According to an article on Yahoo!Health, Botox is being used as a treatment for “kids with cerebral palsy and adults with certain complications of stroke, spinal cord injury, or brain trauma.”
“It’s just like with many other medications that are actually poisons – it’s how we use them and where we use them that make the difference,” Dr. William Klava of Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, ND told Inforum.com. Dr. Klava has treated babies as young as two months to patients as old as 90.
In addition to being injected into foreheads as an anti-aging treatment, Botox is also helping to stop crossed eyes, excessive sweating, and migraine headaches, along with a movement disorder called cervical dystonia, reports Dr. Peter Fodor, clinical professor of plastic surgery at UCLA.
Turns out that Botox is more than just a pretty face, it’s also a useful tool for many conditions.
