Health Tip: Uses for Botox

(HealthDay News) -- Botox injections work by weakening or paralyzing muscles, says MedlinePlus. Common side effects include pain, swelling or bruising at the injection site.

Doctors often use Botox in small doses to treat:

  • Facial wrinkles.
  • Underarm sweating.
  • Abdominal muscle spasms.
  • Chronic migraine.
  • Overactive bladder.
