Botox may be considered somewhat of a miracle drug, banishing wrinkles, urinary stress incontinence, spasms and excessive sweating. But did you know that a study conducted a while ago also suggested that Botox could even help with weight loss?
In the study, it was found that Botox injections into the stomach area could help with weight loss in obese patients. The injections made the patients feel full, staving off hunger and reducing food intake. However, in a more recently published study that sought to validate this finding, researchers were disappointed.
The more recent study found that after examining 60 obese participants, half who received Botox injections and the other half receiving placebos, there was no difference in weight loss six months later for either group. Due to the risks involved and the lack of benefits from this treatment, the researchers concluded that Botox was not an effective solution to weight loss.
