While most people know it as a beauty-enhancing product that gets rid of wrinkles and fine lines in the face. That’s true, however, it also temporarily prevents nerve cell signals from reaching your muscles and reduces abnormal muscle contractions. As such it is a great treatment to address Migraines, TMJ, Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating). and other pain disorders.
BOTOX® Therapy for TMJ and Migraines
BOTOX® is used as an alternative treatment for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) associated jaw tension and pain. When injected into facial muscles afflicted with soreness and discomfort, BOTOX® relieves TMJ and jaw tension for many patients. The injections often eliminate headaches resulting from teeth grinding, and, in cases of severe stress, BOTOX® can even minimize lock jaw. Evidence indicates that it can be extremely effective
Patients that have undergone BOTOX therapy experience noticeable relief from their symptoms within the first few days. However, some improvement may not be obvious for up to a week. Because only the areas applied with BOTOX are alleviated, the treatment does not affect the rest of the body. TMJ disorders afflict specific regions of the face, sometimes causing an uncomfortable-looking appearance. Patients that choose BOTOX have the added benefit of improved aesthetics with a more natural and relaxed presence while their TMJ discomfort is diminished.
Botox for Excessive Sweating
Hyperhidrosis is the medical term for excessive sweating. It refers to any abnormal sweating, such as sweating when it’s not hot. People who sweat excessively often soak through their clothing or drip sweat. Regular antiperspirants don’t work well for those with this condition.
Botox injections are a new treatment option for people with hyperhidrosis. You may be a candidate for Botox if your sweating fails to improve with prescription antiperspirants.
Patients that choose BOTOX have the added benefit of improved aesthetics with a more natural and relaxed presence while their TMJ discomfort is very small.
