Hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a term for excessive sweating. Botox blocks the nerves' signals that cause sweating, in turn stopping the sweat glands from over-producing sweat. The most popular area is the under arms. You should seek another Botox treatment every four to six months to maintain efficacy


Migraines

You can use Botox to decrease migraines, however, like with treating an overactive bladder


Overactive Bladder

Botox injection into the bladder is an FDA-approved treatment for an overactive bladder, although, this is typically a last resort if other medications and therapies are not effective. You administer a series of injections into the wall of the bladder about every six months when the Botox wears off.


Wrinkle Prevention

If you start with small amounts of Botox and filler in your early thirties, when lines first start forming, you'll never get deep ones like we see in people in their forties and fifties. Small consistent changes and essential habit formation prep people for a hopefully long and graceful haul of aging.


Non-Surgical Nose Job

You can use Botox and filler to alter the shape of the nose without surgery. This is optimal for those who have a 'droopy' nose, You inject an average of two to four units of Botox right underneath the septum of the nose. This gives the nose a lifted and lighter look by paralyzing the depressor septi nasi muscle.


Teeth Grinding and Clenching

Doctor uses Botox to help treat teeth grinding and clenching. It's injected into the masseter muscles, tmj joint and temples to relax the musculature that's over contracting. When neuromodulators like Botox is injected correctly into these muscles, the grinding can stop completely, the joints are slowed to function properly and pain is relieved for three to six months depending on severity. This can keep patients from causing chronic and permanent damage to their teeth and jaw over time. The cosmetic issue of facial widening that accompanies these conditions can also be addressed and reduced for facial slimming effect.


Gummy Smiles

Botox can work really well for a gummy smile, meaning a smile where a lot of gum tissue is exposed. You have to do small amounts of test doses. Anything around the very complicated muscle activity of eating, drinking and breathing needs to be treated very cautiously


Brow Lift

Doctors use Botox for brow lifts — it usually allows for a two to three millimeter lift, It's important to only inject in between and in the eyebrow rim, not above the brow or in the forehead. This is a great option for people who may want a little lift, but aren't ready for surgery.


Chronic Pain

There are a variety of non-cosmetic benefits attributed to Botox, some of which are approved by the FDA, some of which are not but are widely known while others continue to be studied. Knee pain, joint pain and pelvic muscle pain are just a few of the growing areas of interest worth discussing with your doctor if your pain isn't letting up with the use of traditional remedies.
