Botox

Let's face it, gravity is against us and life lines are going to come, whether from laughing, frowning, sun damage or genetics. The good news is that no line is stuck forever. Botox is derived from bacterial toxin botulin. This is then used to temporarily paralyze facial muscles that create lines. An interesting side note is that it is also used for some muscle spasms and pains in other parts of the body.

When doing Botox for the first time it is imperative that you are comfortable and informed about the specialist doing the treatment. Asking for before and after photos of past clients and even references is never a bad idea. In San Diego where treatments like this are done on a more regular basis than say Montana, you should still do your research. Having said that, take a look at over 90+ Yelp reviews from extremely happy clients.

When your appointment is made with us, and you come to have your lines erased, the specialist will ask you to make the lines show if they aren't. This allows us to locate the proper muscles to put the shot in. It can be one of a few pricks with the medicine to obtain proper effect in the area. All results are different but you should notice the full effect within 5-7 days.

Botox is widely known in the beauty world as a fantastic treatment for wrinkles, but it actually has many different uses! The powerful neurotoxin can temporarily freeze muscles in the body to provide different results depending on what a client needs and wants. Here are some of the best alternative uses for this product.

Migraines

Botox is a great treatment for chronic migraine sufferers, as it can ease tension in the neck, shoulders, and forehead. Once injected, the Botox will reduce muscle tension and prevents nerve endings from sending signals to the brain. All in all, this treatment will put less stress on the nervous system and can be beneficial for up to 12 weeks.

Uncontrolled blinking

Botox was originally created in order to correct crossed eyes and uncontrolled blinking. The treatment weakens the overacting eye muscles and any eye strain.

Sweating

The symptoms of excessive sweating, also known as hyperhidrosis, can be alleviated by having Botox injections. A doctor will inject the treatment right into the skin of the problem area, and the treatment will work to block uncontrollable sweat glands from producing excess sweat. Typically, a patient will only need one injection to see fantastic results.

Incontinence

The FDA first regulated the use of Botox on the bladders of those who suffer from spinal cord injuries or multiple sclerosis. However, it can be used on patients who have an overactive bladder as injecting directly into the bladder will relax the muscles and allow more urine to be stored.

Writer's cramps

If you write often and have cramps in your hand that just won't go away, Botox can help! These hurting muscles will be relieved, but you will still have complete control of your hand.
