Botox Medical Uses
Botox injections can be administered to help combat migraines, excessive sweating, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. Your Matthews, NC-based membership medical practice specializes in Botox injections, and can advise you on its many uses. Botox is the only preventative treatment for migraines that has been FDA-approved. Candidates must be adults who experience 15 or more headache days per month, in which each lasts for at least 4 hours. Your doctor can inject Botox every 12 weeks to prevent up to 9 headache days per month.
Botox injections are an FDA-approved way to combat excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis. Your doctor can inject Botox into several areas in your underarms with little pain or discomfort. Some studies indicate that treatment is also effective in other parts of the body, for example, in the hands and feet, and for post-menopausal woman who experience excessive sweat on the head. Botox works by temporarily blocking the chemical that stimulates the sweat glands. Most patients see results 4 to 5 days after treatment, and they last for 4 to 6 months, sometimes longer. Patients can be retreated as soon as excessive sweating begins again.
Botox can be injected into the face to combat wrinkles, especially between the eyebrows, across the forehead, crows feet, and laugh lines. It works by targeting the muscles underneath the skin in those areas. First, your doctor will consult with you to discuss your cosmetic goals, and analyze the deepness of wrinkles and quality of your skin. The injections themselves take approximately ten minutes. Pain is minimal, and is described as a pinch. Results are noticeable after 24 to 48 hours. You will not lose your capacity for facial expressions with a doctor who is licensed, trained, and an expert is cosmetic procedures. There is little to no downtime required. Many patients have their injections done over their lunch break, and are able to return to their normal workday or routine almost immediately.
