Botox Medical

Botox has medical as well as cosmetic applications.  As a powerful neurotoxin that can ease over-contracted muscles, Botox was originally used by ophthalmologists to treat crossed or wandering eyes.   After extensive testing, Botox was FDA approved for cosmetic use for smoothing facial lines and wrinkles.  Since its first use for eye disorders around 1990, Botox has shown an increasingly wide range of applications, including migraine headaches and hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating. Botox is also currently being tested for treatment of neck pain associated with Cervical Dystonia (contracted neck muscles), strabismus, essential tremor, teeth grinding, and muscle spasms associated with stroke and muscular dystrophy.

NYDG FLASH FACTS

In addition to cosmetic use for facial lines, dermatologists use Botox to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) in men and women.

Botox can be used to treat hyperhidrosis in the hands, feet or underarms.

Whether used for cosmetic or medical purposes, Botox results are temporary, lasting up to six months.
