Botox Has Hidden Health Benefit for Women

A study in the New England Journal of Medicine finds a wrinkle fighter can calm an overactive bladder. 

Researchers followed more than 250 women with urinary incontinence for six months.

They found a one time botox injection in the bladder reduced the urge to go the bathroom just as well as daily prescription pills.

For many women their incontinence completely went away. 

Doctors say botox shots relax the bladder muscle.
