What are the benefits of Botox injections?

Although BOTOX® was originally created to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles that develop in the facial area due to aging, after ample research doctors have discovered that BOTOX® has a variety of other medical applications and benefits.

1. Reducing and Preventing Facial Wrinkles

To get rid of wrinkles and fine lines, BOTOX® is injected into the muscles that are usually the underlying cause of wrinkles. This allows the muscles to relax around the injection site, making the skin smooth again and reducing the amount of wrinkles.

2. Correcting Eye Conditions

BOTOX® can also be used to correct physical eye problems such as Lazy eyes, strabismus (crossed-eyes), and blepharospasm (rapid eye blinking). The neurotoxin in the BOTOX® serum also stops the effects of eye twitching and squinting that’s oftentimes a symptom of stress and muscle weakness.

3. Stop Excessive Sweating

Excessive sweating, also referred to as hyperhidrosis, doesn’t always stop once you start using antiperspirant. While deodorants are a recommended first line of defense against excessive sweating, if you’re still experiencing issues there is hope!

This treatment not only helps with the effects of hyperhidrosis, but it can also reverse the effects of stress sweat as well. It has a way of blocking acetylcholine, the chemical in the body that activates the sweat glands. It is specifically successful in areas of the body that are more prone to sweating like armpits. For long-term relief, it is advised that patients in Nashville seek additional injections as needed to maintain the results.

4. Relief for Migraines

BOTOX® Cosmetic has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of migraines. The neurotoxin used in the BOTOX® serum will start to affect the nerves and prevent both muscle tension responses and pain transmission that comes from headaches.

How Long Does It Take To See Results From Botox Migraine Treatments?

Normally it takes a few treatments for full results to set in. So you might not experience full relief from your migraines until the second or third treatment.
