Many now recognize BOTOX® as a common way to rejuvenate an individual’s facial appearance by smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines. But it might surprise you to learn that BOTOX is not just purely a cosmetic enhancement. In fact, it can be used to treat a variety of medical problems and conditions. If you’ve been wondering about this popular treatment, we have answers to your questions.
What Is BOTOX?
Medically known as botulinum toxin, BOTOX is an injectable drug used to treat many common medical issues. Its most popular use as a cosmetic enhancement is to smooth wrinkles and fine lines in the face by temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles. Regular injections can give patients a more youthful appearance by smoothing the skin and plumping up the areas surrounding the eyes, forehead, and mouth. These results last for months and are easily maintained with a visit to Dr. Park at Southbridge Dental Care. But the benefits of BOTOX go beyond mere esthetics! It can address a number of medical issues.
What Medical Conditions Can BOTOX Treat?
Because BOTOX works to inhibit muscle function, it can be used to treat medical conditions that cause pain from overactivity. Dental-related issues like bruxism (chronic clenching and grinding of the teeth), TMD (temporomandibular joint dysfunction), and migraines from jaw pain can also be helped with BOTOX. Additionally, BOTOX can address chronic eye twitching, spasticity, symptoms of cerebral palsy, an overactive bladder, and more!
