Do you suffer from FOMO courtesy of an overactive bladder? Accidently summon the no-so-hot guy thanks to an involuntary wink? Well you should be thanking your lucky stars for Botox!

TMJ (a.k.a. temporomandibular joint syndrome): Tired of the daily grind? Teeth clenching and grinding, gum chewing, and stress can lead to TMJ disorders, which can be excruciatingly painful.

Some patients even notice a cosmetic difference of a smoother more appealing jawline afterwards. The average price for treatment will run about $800.
Facial Contouring: Does your face resemble a round circle or a harsh square, and not in a geometrically pleasing away? With Botox, you can now get the striking, contoured features you've been after, with higher cheekbones a slimmer jaw, and still be able to confidently say you haven't had any "work" done. This procedure is said to be very popular, as Botox injections are used in order to slim the lower jawline often. The average price for treatment will run about $960.
Vaginal Rejuvenation: Is your sex life suffering from muscles that are too tight or too weak? Botox is said to also be able to help your sex life!
