Botox is a unique, versatile drug that can be used in many, different ways (cosmetic and medical) to help with a diverse array of problems. If you’re curious and haven’t tried Botox (or Dysport), give us a call to learn more about the multitude of options below.
Here is a list of some of the more commonly encountered issues that Botox can be used to correct:
Botox works for all these problems because it is a targeted treatment that relaxes treated muscles. When certain muscles in the face are relaxed, it allows others (opposing muscles) to work better. This is why a deep understanding of the anatomy of the face and how the muscle groups interact with one another during facial expression is so important when injecting Botox. The overall goal is to take full advantage of its effect and use it in a way that maximizes or balances these actions while maintaining natural movement and expression.
Also bear in mind that Botox can always be used in combination (and often is) with other products such as Dysport and dermal fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and Radiesse. Using all in conjunction can provide maximum correction of problematic aesthetic issues and will enhance the overall outcome. This leads to younger-looking, smoother and fuller facial features.
Another FDA-approved use of Botox is for the treatment of hyperhidrosis. This condition causes excessive, embarrassing underarm sweating that is socially and professionally limiting and keeps people from living at their full potential. Small amounts of Botox are injected into the area, blocking the innervation of the sweat glands. This in effect, stops the overactive sweating, allowing people with hyperhidrosis to live like anyone else, wearing the clothes and enjoying activities that they want to.
