Before it was used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, BOTOX® was used medicinally. Scientists had already discovered that the purified protein solution worked by relaxing muscles in the body. Doctors discovered that they could harness this power and treat people who suffered from various issues.
This is an often severe headache that’s concentrated on one side of the head. It is often preceded by an aura that brings visual disturbances, nausea and vomiting. Some doctors and medical professionals believe much of the pain of migraine is caused by spasming muscles in the head, neck and the space between the eyebrows, so BOTOX® can be used in these areas. Many migraine patients do find relief from this treatment.
Whether you have TMJ issues due to clenching or too much teeth grinding, BOTOX® may work for you. When the solution is injected into the TMJ, it basically causes the joint to relax, thus eliminating many of the symptoms associated with TMJ dysfunction.
This condition is called hyperhidrosis. It is not painful nor life-threatening, but as you may know all too well, it can be very embarrassing. It happens when the nerves that stimulate the body to sweat are overactive. BOTOX® calms these nerves and stops the excessive sweating. It can be used in the palms and under the arms.
