65 year old Shivalingiah, a temple priest, began losing his voice two years ago. He depended on his voice for reciting temple hymns, but he was afraid this career would come to and end if his condition didn’t improve. After seeing multiple doctors who treated him for laryngitis, his vocal chords still weren’t getting any better. But when Shivalingiah was treated with Botox, his voice was completely restored.
Shivalingiah was diagnosed with spasmodic dysphonia, a rare vocal disorder where the muscles in charge of your voice box tighten or spasm. When his vocal box muscles were injected with Botox, Shivlingiah’s voice healed after 3 days.
Botox injections work by temporarily relaxing targeted muscles–typically in the facial region for anti-aging purposes. However, Botox has proven to help relieve a variety of medical conditions as well. On top of spasmodic dysphonia, Botox helps improve migraines, bladder control, eczema, and more.
As a cosmetic treatment, Botox ranks #1 in the nonsurgical category. There are millions of Botox treatments performed each year. In fact, Actavis Pharmaceutical recently acquired Botox manufacturer, Allergan, in a $66 billion dollar deal. As a treatment, Botox has continued to grow exponentially.
