5 Surprising Uses for Botox
Much more than simply a wrinkle freezer, these days, the injectable is being used for a bunch of shocking things. (Breast lift, anyone?)
The product is simply injected -- using an ultra-fine needle -- just under the skin where the sweat glands rest. (Note: Botox injections don't cure the condition, they just treat it for up to seven months.)
Details: While some health insurers cover the cost of these medical treatments, when you're paying out of pocket you can expect underarms to cost up to $1,000 and palms to be about $2,000.
Scoop: Many patients have said that while it works like a charm, getting injections into the palms is extremely painful. As a result, many physicians offer nerve blocks, ice, pressure and topical anesthetics to help alleviate most of the discomfort.
