What Conditions Can be Treated With Medical BOTOX®?
Over the past decade or two, BOTOX has become famous as a neurotoxin used to great aesthetic effect. A simple injection delivered at various points in the facial region can diminish the diverse signs of aging, including wrinkles, creases, Crow's feet, and other unseemly features etched into our faces over time.
But considering BOTOX only a cosmetic treatment would be unfair because this substance has many medical uses. It can treat numerous achy ailments affecting the muscles or joints. It can also diminish the pain of migraine headaches and help individuals with hyperhidrosis (sweating) or lazy eye to conquer their condition and enjoy a more comfortable, confident life.
All these benefits can be yours with a quick call or message. Simply contact us to explore your options with Dr. Kara Farley or James Terry at Mid Cities Direct Primary Care in Grapevine, TX.
BOTOX offers an easy, effective treatment option for various medical issues
In addition to its wonderfully effective nature, medical BOTOX treatment is a minimally invasive procedure with no downtime. Unlike past treatments for numerous common (or not-so-common) conditions, a BOTOX injection will not require a recovery period.
You'll be free to resume your daily routine, regardless of whether it includes school, work, or other obligations. BOTOX has earned a reputation as a "lunchtime appointment" because it's so quick and straightforward: you'll be done in less than half an hour. And you won't have to do anything other than relax in our pleasant, comfortable treatment room.
What conditions can be treated with medical BOTOX?
BOTOX works well to alleviate the effects of numerous painful conditions, especially those associated with muscles or joints. For example, by administering units of BOTOX at strategically placed points around the head, neck, and jaw, we can relieve the pain of temporomandibular joint disorder, also known as TMD.
Pain relief isn't limited to the jaw joint area. These injections are becoming increasingly popular for diminishing the severe, potentially debilitating pain that keeps migraine sufferers chained to the couch or bed. Similarly, neck spasms (cervical dystonia) can also be treated this way, as can lazy eye, since they are both problems with a muscular origin.
BOTOX can also provide a treatment option for individuals with hyperhidrosis. Also known as excessive sweating, it causes people to sweat significantly regardless of temperature or activity level. Unsurprisingly, such a condition can seriously impact one's daily life. But 10 – 15 small injections in the underarm area can substantially reduce sweating.
BOTOX can help patients achieve all these effects through its mode of action. By temporarily preventing the contracting of muscles, it can relieve the pain or dysfunction associated with faulty or spasmodic muscle groups.
