BOTOX is an injectable neuromodulator that smooths dynamic wrinkles, including frown lines and crow’s feet. Dynamic wrinkles develop as your facial muscles contract, over and over, frowning, concentrating, squinting, or raising your eyebrows.
What does BOTOX treat?
BOTOX injections are widely used by plastic surgeons to reduce the appearance of facial wrinkles, furrows, fine lines, and other imperfections caused by repeated muscle action. In addition, BOTOX may be used to treat a variety of non-cosmetic conditions:
This refers to a condition in which vision in one of the eyes fails to develop as it should, resulting in an eye that often wanders inwards or outwards. BOTOX injections may be administered to the muscles responsible for balancing the eye.
Certain neurological conditions may cause your limbs to pull in toward your center. BOTOX injections may be used to relax the contracted muscles.
People with this serious condition suffer from severe headaches for at least eight days each month. BOTOX injections may be used to reduce symptoms of migraine, such as nausea, sensitivity to light, and vomiting.
Some patients suffer from urinary continence triggered by an overactive bladder. BOTOX injections can help alleviate this issue.
With this painful condition, the neck muscles are prone to involuntary contractions, causing the head to turn or twist into uncomfortable positions. BOTOX injections may help alleviate these muscle contractions.
BOTOX is frequently used as a solution for twitching or contracture of muscles around the eyes.
If you are considering having BOTOX to address any of these issues, Dr. Balinger can provide the way forward. In some cases, he may need to collaborate with your regular doctor to achieve the procedure outcome.
