Botox

Medical Botox

Botox is a purified form of Botulinum Toxin A, known best for its cosmetic

uses and most recently for its tremendous medical benefits. Medical Botox may

be considered if other treatments are not affective or cause dissatisfactory side

effects.

 

Botox may offer a safe and effective preventive treatment option for

patients with a wide variety of different conditions:

  • Excessive sweating - Botulinum toxin works by blocking the chemicals that turn on the sweat glands in the axilla.

  • Blepharospasm - uncontrollable blinking or spasm of the eyelid, usually the upper lid.

  • Muscle spasticity

  • Chronic Migraines

 

Botox will be injected by an experience physician into targeted

muscles/areas. However the effects are not permanent, many patients receive

relief anywhere from 3-6 moths. If medical necessity is met, many insurance plans

may cover for this service, less any copay or deductible.

Botox® and Fillers

BOTOX® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and can be used to improve the look of crow’s feet lines, frown lines between the eyebrows and wrinkles. The medication works beneath the skin’s surface and targets underlying muscle activity. With repeated injections, the muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years are targeted and you will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your troubled areas. BOTOX® is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries.

Restylane® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct 
moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose 
to the corners of your mouth as well as for lip enhancement. Restylane is a formulation of hyaluronic acid that is formulated to act like your body's own hyaluronic acid, which helps to fight the signs of facial aging. In a clinical study of subjects treated with Restylane, patients saw improvement in 95% of subjects 18 months after initial injection. Other fillers available including Perlane, Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma.
