The unexpected therapeutic benefits of BOTOX® treatments.

Widely known for its wrinkle smoothing benefits, many people are unaware of the other therapeutic applications of BOTOX® treatments. In fact, before the anti-aging benefits for wrinkle reduction with BOTOX COSMETIC® treatments were discovered, it had a long history of research which eventually led to its FDA approval in 1988 to treat strabismus (squint) and blepharospasm (spasms of the eyelid muscle).

At Concept Medical, we offer therapeutic treatments with BOTOX® to address hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and chronic migraines. This provides patients suffering from these conditions access to an effective alternative or a complementary treatment to traditional approaches that can include oral medication and prescription antiperspirants.

How do chronic migraine treatments with BOTOX® work?

While the exact cause of migraines has not been identified, scientists speculate there is a link between how the blood vessels in the brain dilate and constrict in response to a variety of triggers that can include:

  • emotional stress
  • changing weather patterns
  • sensitivities to chemicals and preservatives in food
  • caffeine
  • menstrual periods
  • fatigue
  • skipping meals
  • change in sleeping pattern

A BOTOX® treatment for chronic migraine targets muscle groups in the face, head and neck to relax them and relieve the muscular tension that contributes to the migraine symptoms. These neuromodulator treatments are an effective preventative treatment option, thus aiding patients in the management of their migraines and improving their quality of life.

How do treatments with BOTOX® address excessive sweating?

Excessive sweating, regardless of how it manifests itself can be emotionally distressing for sufferers. Hyperhidrosis treatments with BOTOX® work by blocking the nerve signals the brain sends to the sweat glands. Many areas of excessive sweating may be treated, with the most common being the underarms, hands, feet and scalp.

A consultation with a licensed physician will establish the most effective approach to provide relief from the effects of excessive sweating. In addition to treatments with BOTOX®, a course of treatment may include a combination therapy of oral medication and medical strength antiperspirants.

Overall, it’s fascinating to see how treatments with BOTOX® can positively impact well-being beyond facial rejuvenation. This is certainly good news for migraine sufferers and individuals who are troubled by excessive sweating.
