The Benefits of Botox Update

Since its introduction into the global market, Botox has been high on the list of efficacious facial treatments for lines and wrinkles, usually paired with facial fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane, to smooth lines and wrinkles and inhibit them from forming.

In addition to its aesthetic treatment protocol, Botox has been proven, through a variety of studies through the years, to effectively help a variety of medical conditions.  The following are the most common chronic ailments suffered by people, who, after being treated with FDA approved Botox therapy, were relieved of their pain, discomfort or disability.

1.  Chronic Migraine pain.  FDA approved in 2010 for migraine prevention.

2.  Excessive Sweating (hyperhydrosis).  FDA approved in 2004.  Injections are made just     under the skin surface.  Areas of injection can be underarms, palms or feet.      

3.  Incontinence.  In the treatment of women with severe incontinence, findings from a recentstudy of 381 women at the Duke University School of Medicine showed that regular Botox injections were more effective than a surgically implanted nerve stimulator.

4.  Scarring.  To reduce the appearance of scarring after surgical procedures, many physician use Botox treatments to prevent the skin from spreading apart at the incision site.  This therapy is also used to prevent acne scars from increasing in size.

5.  Muscle Spasms.  In the U.S., Botox is approved to treat muscle spasms in the eyelids, face, neck, shoulders and upper body.

6.  Crossed Eyes (Strabismus).  Botox has been used since the 1970s to change the position of the eye by relaxing the eye muscle, causing the eye to re-focus.
