Botox has been around for decades. When you think of Botox, you might think of the Hollywood starlet. However, Botox has many medical as well as aesthetic applications.
Top Botox Medical Uses include:
1) Treat Migraines
2) Excessive Underarm Sweating
3) Severe Neck Spasms
There are many other uses for Botox Medical. The safety and efficacy of Botox have been measured as the product is used over 6 million times per year. It was first discovered in the 80s when it was used for voice stuttering. Researchers later realized that it also reduced wrinkles in aesthetic patients. The amounts that are used for cosmetic purposes are much less than what we use for many medical purposes. When used for medical purposes it can be healthy when compared to competing remedies. At our office,
we’ve had much success with the use of Botox for migraine headaches helping people take fewer systemic medications that typically had bad side effect profiles.
We also use it for hyperhidrosis, a medical condition that results in excessive sweating. Patients may sweat through several shirts per day. In that regard, users find that they no longer use need to use antiperspirant and deodorants for up to six months. Health-conscious users appreciate the health benefits of avoiding the high concentration of aluminum in most antiperspirant products.
It can also address sweating on the face as well. Some insurances in New Jersey and NYC may cover Botox Medical.
Botox is considered to be safe and effective for New Jersey and NYC patients as the product has been on the market for over 30 years. Botox is a brand name (trademark) as there are two other branded products, Dysport and Xeomin. We use all 3 in our practice depending on the patient.
