Most everyone has heard of BOTOX and knows that it can help turn back the hands of time by treating wrinkles and folds on the face. But did you know it can also be used for other cosmetic and medical purposes like excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)? Dr. Jeffrey J. Roth is pleased to provide BOTOX for many concerns.
The Many Uses for BOTOX
- Anti-aging: BOTOX is best known for its ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds on your face that can contribute to an aged appearance. BOTOX is a neuromodulator, and when injected into muscles, it can reduce tension. When this occurs on facial muscles, it helps smooth 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. Sometimes, we also pair it with dermal fillers for a “liquid facelift.”
- 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 you to feel more confident no matter what you are wearing!

- Jawline Slimming: Sometimes, the masseter (jaw) muscle becomes overdeveloped, making the face look broad and heavy. This may happen if you clench or grind your teeth at night or develop other habits that keep your jaw moving excessively. BOTOX relaxes that overactive muscle, creating a slimmer and more angular jawline. In the hands of a skilled injector, BOTOX can also balance an asymmetric-looking jawline related to the jaw muscle.
- Gummy Smile: If you’re concerned about showing too much of your upper gums when you smile, BOTOX may help. When injected into the muscle between your nose and upper lip, BOTOX relaxes the muscle, preventing your upper lip from lifting so much that it shows your upper gum line.
How Long Does BOTOX Last?
It often takes a few days for your BOTOX results to develop. Whether you use BOTOX for cosmetic or medical reasons, most doctors find that results will last 3 to 7 months before reinjection is required to maintain the results. It is important that patients continue to undergo injections to address their concerns on a long-term basis.
