In 1989, the therapeutic application for BOTOX® treatments was approved by the FDA for use in treating eye spasm. Since, BOTOX COSMETIC® has risen to notoriety for its use in wrinkle rejuvenation. Today, BOTOX THERAPEUTIC® treatments are still widely employed. The product is made of a purified protein and is administered to specific areas to treat a number of medical conditions. BOTOX THERAPEUTIC® treatments for migraines can relieve and prevent debilitating headaches, while BOTOX THERAPEUTIC® injections into the masseter (jaw) muscle can reduce jaw pain, teeth grinding and over development of the muscle. BOTOX THERAPEUTIC® treatments can also treat hyperhidrosis for excessive underarm sweating and sweaty palms (hyperhidrosis).
A professional consultation with a Cutis health professional will determine if a BOTOX Therapeutic ® treatment is right for you. It is important to receive your treatments from an experienced physician and maintain your follow up treatments at recommended intervals. All BOTOX Therapeutic ® treatments at Cutis are provided by Dr. Edstrom, Dermatologist and Dr. Lemckert, Cosmetic Facial Surgeon. Treatments are quick, requiring just 15-20 minutes. The effect of the BOTOX Therapeutic ® injections will be realized within 1 to 14 days of treatment. Results last up to 3-12 months for therapeutic purposes. Some extended health plans will cover BOTOX THERAPEUTIC® treatments for medical reasons. Confirm with your provider prior to treatment.
BOTOX Therapeutic ® treatments require little to no recovery. Some redness and swelling may occur at pinpoint sites of injection, lasting approximately 30 minutes to an hour. You can return immediately to all regular activities.
How It Works
The purified protein known as botulinum toxin A aids in temporarily relaxing the muscles which cause painful migraines and disrupts the chemical signals that activate the sweat glands responsible for excessive sweating - hyperhidrosis.
