Chronic migraine headache
If you experience migraines more than 15 days a month, BOTOX injections may help reduce headache frequency. BOTOX is the only preventive treatment approved exclusively for Chronic Migraine.
if you live with excessive sweating, you know that it can occur even when the temperature isn’t hot and you’re not exerting yourself. BOTOX can help to alleviate this chronic condition and stop the embarrassment. This condition can occur in your underarms,hands and soles of your feet. BOTOX for hyperhidrosis is an FDA approved treatment that has been shown to decrease sweating in the areas injected by as much as 87 percent.While sweating is necessary for our bodies to maintain healthy temperature levels, the areas that are commonly associated with this condition only contain a small percentage of the bodies sweat gland thus making BOTOX a safe treatment option when other treatments have failed.
Clinching/Grinding of teeth
By injecting small doses of BOTOX directly into the masseter muscle (the large muscle that moves the jaw), the muscle is weakened enough to stop involuntary grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. This significantly relaxes the muscle and reduces the wear and tear on the teeth due to grinding. Damage to the TMJ (temporomandibular joint) and headaches should be reduced or eliminated as well. Voluntary movements, such as chewing and facial expressions, are not effected at all by BOTOX.
If you tend to curl your upper lip under or raise it high above your teeth when you smile, there’s a quick (and relatively affordable) solution. A small injection of BOTOX to the muscles that over lift the upper lip can help relax the lip for a more balanced grin.
Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)
Pain caused by teeth grinding and temporomandibular joint dysfunction, or TMJ, can be debilitating. BOTOX injections can prevent and alleviate the pain of both ailments by relaxing tense jaw muscles. This procedure also has an added facial slimming benefit. The injectors at Facial Aesthetics By Andrea are trained in therapeutic dental uses of BOTOX as well as cosmetic. We work together with your dentist to provide you a solution for that ongoing pain which can lead to many other problems.
