BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectible substance based on the toxin produced by botulinum bacteria. This toxin has an incredibly diverse range of medical applications throughout the body, and more uses are being discovered faster than anyone thought possible.

Anti-aging and wrinkle treatments

This is the original and most famous use for BOTOX® Cosmetic. When the toxin is injected into the muscles of the face, it interferes with the nerve signals that tell the muscles to contract. This forces those muscles to relax, thereby reducing wrinkles on the surface.

Migraine treatment

In 2010, the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved BOTOX® Cosmetic as a treatment for chronic migraine headaches. Researchers discovered that when BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected in various locations around the head and neck, headache patients can experience relief from migraines that lasts as long as three months.

Excessive perspiration

Severe sweating, or axillary hyperhidrosis, can make patients’ lives miserable. If you’ve tried every antiperspirant out there only to be disappointed, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be able to help. The FDA approved BOTOX® Cosmetic in 2004 for excessive sweat after studies demonstrated that 94 percent of clinical trial patients who received it required four or fewer treatments to control their symptoms over a two-year period.

Cosmetic dentistry support

BOTOX® Cosmetic is also widely used in cosmetic dentistry to treat a wide range of neuromuscular issues that cause pain and create signs of aging. TMJ pain, for example, is often worsened when patients clench and grind their teeth. But the same toxins in BOTOX® Cosmetic that cause the muscles of the face to relax can also force the jaw to relax as well, offering relief from TMJ. And, along with other cosmetic dentistry procedures, BOTOX® Cosmetic can help patients reduce the appearance of frown and laugh lines. It can even be part of a comprehensive smile makeover.
