Most everyone has heard of Botox and knows that it can help in turning back the hands of time by treating wrinkles and folds on the face. But did you know it can also be used for medical purposes? Dr. Jeffrey J. Roth of Las Vegas, NV is pleased to provide Botox for both the treatment of facial imperfections as well as for hyperhidrosis.
The two uses for Botox:
- Anti-aging – Botox is best known for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on the face that can contribute to an aging appearance. Botox is a neuromodulator, and when injected into muscles, it can reduce tension. When this occurs on facial muscles, it helps in smoothing out the imperfections that lead to folds on specific areas of the face. Our team finds that Botox is perfect for treating glabellar lines, forehead folds, and crow’s feet on both men and women.
- Hyperhidrosis – a condition called hyperhidrosis causes patients to experience excessive sweating from the underarms. This can be extremely embarrassing, while at the same time, damaging clothing and causing sweat stains that fail to wash out. Patients who have been diagnosed with this condition often do not find relief with specialized antiperspirants, especially if their condition is severe. Botox medication can be injected into the underarms to reduce sweat production dramatically, allowing patients to feel more confident no matter what they are wearing!
How long does Botox last?
Whether patients use Botox for cosmetic or medical reasons, most doctors find that treatment will last several months before reinjection is required to maintain the results. It is important that patients continue to undergo injections to address wrinkles and hyperhidrosis on a more long-term basis.
