What Does Botox Treat?

Botox® injections use a specific toxin to stop muscle movement temporarily. These injections block particular chemical signals, preventing muscles from contracting. Botox® treatment relaxes specific facial muscles that cause wrinkles and lines around the eyes and forehead. Aside from addressing issues caused by muscle movement, Botox® injections treat different conditions that affect normal body function.

Botox® injections address cosmetic, medical, and a range of other conditions. Before proceeding with Botox®, consult an expert to determine if you need it. Aside from wrinkles, other uses of Botox injections include:

Chronic Migraines

These severe headaches usually comprise of nausea, sensitivity to noise, and light. Chronic migraines last more than three hours which takes a toll on your ability to go about your business. Our expert physicians inject Botox into muscles in your head and neck, stopping the pain. This treatment is done every three months to prevent reoccurrence and reduce the effects caused by migraines.

Overactive Bladder

People who suffer from an overactive bladder experience frequent and unexpected contractions. This results in loss of bladder control, frequent urination, and sudden urge to urinate. Botox® also treats an overactive bladder, whereby a urologist injects the toxin into your bladder. With the help of Botox® injections, patients regain control of their bladder.

Excessive Underarm Sweating

Also known as hyperhidrosis, excessive underarm sweating occurs when nerves trigger the sweat glands. This happens even in the absence of standard triggers like heat or fear. A Botox® injection into the muscles responsible for sweating reduces sweat production and gives you back the confidence needed.

Crooked Eyes

Due to unbalanced muscles around the eyes, one eye gets pulled in an unusual direction. This results in misaligned or crossed eyes. People with crooked eyes experience difficulty focusing, blurred vision, eye soreness, and depth perception. Botox® injections relax the muscles responsible for pulling the look sideways.
