The more we learn about Botox, the more we are grateful for this amazing treatment. It’s a workhorse and can do so much more than you may think. It’s not just for smoothing out lines and wrinkles, making you look a little more young. Did you know that Botox can help with migraines and even those who suffer from excessive sweating?
Most people love Botox for the amazing beautifying results you can receive–without lengthy downtime, surgical scars, and with minimal chance of side effects. But, we know there’s so much more this little injectable can do.
What is Botox?
Botox is, quite simply, a neurotoxin that attaches itself to nerve endings to weaken the facial muscles that cause creases and deep-set wrinkles in the above skin. It is injected with a very small needle, very precisely at desirable sites on the face to minimize wrinkles and give you a more youthful, smooth appearance.
It can also be used to treat muscle twitches and spasms. If you do find yourself bothered by muscle spasms, Botox could be the thing to help soothe those firing nerves. If you suffer from Blepharospasm, or spasms in the muscles of your eyelids, Dr. Thom can help relieve your suffering with a little Botox.
Do your research and find a provider who understands the art of administering Botox in the way you need it. A doctor new to Botox might administer it incorrectly, leaving you with unnatural swelling or even Botox that fades away sooner than it should. And, if they’re used to injecting Botox just for beauty, they may not understand how to slow down that twitch you’re so bothered by.
Did you know that Botox is a licensed treatment for migraines? Chronic migraines, specifically, are often helped with regular Botox injections. Dr. Thom can help resolve the issue you’re having with migraines with the help of Botox. If you want to get rid of migraines before summer vacation, call us today.
