Treatment Of A Drooping Brow

Also called “Brow Ptosis,” drooping brow can cause patients to look unhappy and tired even when they are feeling awake and happy.

Many times, intervention is needed. Botox® results in the relaxing of the brow muscles and, when administered correctly, can keep them aloft.

Stop Excessive Sweating

Hyperhidrosis” is defined by the National Library of Medicine as “a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably.

People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest.”

Just like Botox® (botulinum toxin) can prevent directions given by the brain from reaching the intended muscle, it can also act as a shield for sweat glands.

It is particularly helpful for excessive localized sweating in the patient’s armpits, feet or hands.

Reduce Migraine Pain

Many migraine patients have read up on the use of Botox® as a treatment for their condition. While Botox may not stop the migraines in their tracks it does often time drastically reduce many of their major symptoms like sensitivity to light and nausea, making the migraine easier to deal with.

Treatment for Bells Palsy

Administering Botox to the affected side of the the face can help relax facial muscles that might have tightened up and become painful. It can also prevent unwanted facial tics.

Administering the treatment to the non-paralyzed side of the patient’s face–this Botox® benefit is more cosmetic in nature.

This technique can help relax the movements on the dominant side of the face.

This helps give the face a more balanced look even when the patient is talking or moving their face a lot.

Eye Twitch/Squinting

Sometimes the twitching will be rapid and/or constant. Other times the twitch can cause a permanent spasm of the muscle, holding it in a tense position for a prolonged period of time.

In addition to being annoying and sometimes painful, these twitches can also interfere with the patient’s vision.
