Struggling with the Heat? Cool off with Botox!

Looks like there's another benefit to Botox, and no it's not anti-aging or relieving migraines, its also helping hot flashes. Texas women are some of the first to try a new menopause treatment discovered by University of Texas researchers. Botox is a toxin that paralyzes the nerves that produce wrinkles. However another advantage is it blocks sweating responses in the skin. As of now the experiment is targeting the women's forehead nerves, they are hoping that after a few weeks post-injection the hot-flash-ridden women will find solace and a cooling breeze. If results are positive, the researchers hope to find a drug with similar agents as Botox to use throughout the rest of the body. If Botox is a wrinkle remover and hot flash reducer, women will be swarming dermatologists for an extra prick or injection here and there. This could be a win-win situation for all involved, especially as baby-boomer women seek out alternatives to help with aging and menopause.
