When to Consider Botox

Botox, medically known as Botulinum Toxin, is a formula that can be injected into the skin in very small doses for various therapeutic effects. Botox works by preventing the neurotransmitters that tell muscles to contract from functioning. While often used for cosmetic reasons, using Botox can yield a variety of positive results.

Cosmetic Use

If you have wrinkles on your face, particularly in the forehead or area around the eyes, Botox can help eliminate them, smoothing the skin out by preventing the muscles beneath it from contracting. The injection can also prove helpful in eliminating “crow’s feet,” lines that occur naturally at the outer edge of each eye.

Another area where Botox is very effective for cosmetic use is the forehead. Raising your eyebrows can cause fine horizontal lines to appear. Over time these lines can become ingrained and make you appear older. Botox makes it harder to raise your eyebrows, which prevents the lines from forming.

The “hatchet lines” between the eyebrows are perhaps the most common area for Botox use in the face. These lines are easily resolved with Botox.

Migraine Headaches

Botox is the only treatment for migraine headaches approved by the Food & Drug Administration. The procedure is best suited for patients experiencing chronic migraines (15 or more headaches every month) who have tried multiple migraine medications to no avail. Botox injections can prevent as many as nine headaches each month.

Excessive Sweating

If you suffer from severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis (excessive underarm sweating), Botox may be an effective treatment for you. Most doctors recommend that patients 18 or older first try topical creams or formulas to resolve the sweating. If this does not work, Botox can be injected into the underarm area.
