Botox is one of the leading cosmetic treatments in dermatology. Many men and women flock to their board-certified dermatologist for safe and effective Botox treatment. The neuromodulator is used to relax the muscles that cause facial lines and wrinkles. The purified protein in Botox prevents the muscles from contracting leaving people with firmer skin in the treated areas. In addition, Botox is used to treat hyperhidrosis and migraines.

The various uses of Botox

Throughout the medical field, Botox is used to treat the following:

  • Lines and wrinkles – Whether it is frown lines on the forehead or lines at the corners of the eyes (crow’s feet), Botox can help turn back the hands of time. A Botox treatment session can be completed during a lunch break. There is no downtime; allowing you to return to work or resume other activities.
  • Hyperhidrosis – The FDA has approved the prescription medication for treating excessive underarm sweating. Botox prevents the nerve signals that trigger overactive sweat glands. Botox can provide relief for up to six months after treatment. If constantly sweating is embarrassing, this may be the ideal treatment for you.
  • Migraines related to TMD (temporomandibular joint disorder) – In 2010, the FDA approved Botox for the treatment of chronic migraine headaches and it has been proven to relieve migraine symptoms for up to three months. Although this is not a dermatological use of Botox, we want to highlight its ability to improve health.
