Best uses for Botox

best uses for botoxBest uses for Botox: Botox is arguably the most popular anti-ageing injectable treatment in the world. It helps to smooth unsightly expression lines and dynamic wrinkles by temporarily relaxing the muscles that create these imperfections when we create an expression. However, you may not be aware that there are several uses for Botox which can offer significant life-improving benefits and are available with Dr Dan Dhunna from his various Botox clinics located throughout the UK.

Botox for hyperhidrosis

Hyperhidrosis is a condition where the patient experiences excessive sweating that isn’t necessarily associated with overheating or exercise. The patient can sweat so much that it can soak through clothes and drips from the hands. As well as disturbing normal daily activities, hyperhidrosis can cause upset, embarrassment and feelings of self-consciousness.

Hyperhidrosis can typically affect areas such as the underarms, hands, face, back and behind the knees and usually starts during puberty. Botox for hyperhidrosis works by blocking the nerves responsible for activating the sweat glands. Ordinarily, your nervous system would activate the sweat glands when your body temperature rises. In cases of hyperhidrosis, the nerves that signal the sweat glands are overactive, which causes excessive sweating.

When Botox is injected directly into the area of the body that is experiencing hyperhidrosis, the overactive nerves are temporarily paralyzed. When these nerves can’t signal the sweat glands, the sweating stops.

Botox for migraines

A migraine is a moderate or severe headache which can be felt as a throbbing pain on one side of the head. A lot of people that suffer from migraines will experience other symptoms such as feeling sick, being sick, partial loss of sight and a significantly increased sensitivity to light or sound. Some people experience migraines on a regular basis whilst others may only experience a migraine once in their lives. The after effects of migraines can be lethargy and mild headaches for days afterwards.

Botox injections can be administered to treat and prevent the symptoms of migraines. It’s thought that Botox blocks chemicals called neurotransmitters which carry pain signals from your brain. Botox stops these chemicals before they reach the nerve endings around the head and neck.

The treatment works by administering several shots of Botox around your head and neck once every 12 weeks. You may need between 30 and 40 shots in all and Dr Dan Dhunna will administer an equal number of each side of your head. However, if you experience pain in one particular area, he may administer more there.
