Even with all the newest medical advancements, doctors often rely on tried and true measures to treat patients for a variety of ailments or health conditions. Substances derived from nature sometimes prove to be the most helpful resources in modern medicine. One of the leading substances still in use today in cosmetic medicine is BOTOX®. Find out what this popular treatment is and for what medical purposes doctors use it today.
What is BOTOX®?
When used in minute doses for medicinal purposes, BOTOX® can be a valuable resource for treating a wide variety of illnesses and health conditions. The treatment is administered to patients via subdermal injections. The injections are performed as an outpatient procedure. It is minimally invasive and relatively free of discomfort, although we may apply a topical numbing agent if desired.
BOTOX® is used to address an assortment of conditions and illnesses in patients today. The treatment is commonly used for the following:
• Smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and skin folds on your face
• Prevent or stop severe underarm sweating
• Address cervical dystonia, or severe neck and shoulder muscle contractions
• Halt uncontrollable blinking
• Ease chronic migraines
• Calm overactive bladder
• Treat misaligned eyes
BOTOX® typically goes to work right away and can last for many months. Successful treatments should prevent you from having to undergo further medical care for your symptoms. At our office, we offer BOTOX® Cosmetic in particular.
How Does It Work?
Because BOTOX® is injected directly into the muscle or tissue, it goes to work immediately and lasts longer than other cosmetic or minimally invasive treatments. Once it is injected, it weakens or paralyzes the muscles. It also blocks the nerves in the treated area.
As mentioned, the treatment is minimally invasive and causes little to no discomfort. It is also safe enough for patients who are in good health and have realistic expectations for the results of their injections. During your initial consultation with us, we can help you determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment. You may be required to stay in our office until it can be determined that you are not experiencing any side effects.
BOTOX® continues to help patients all over the world look young and rejuvenated with minimal hassle, and it is provided with expertise at Neo Skin Center in Hudson. This outpatient procedure is quick, minimally invasive and convenient. Contact us today to find out if this popular treatment is right for you.
