Botox injections at the Integrated Dermatology of Reno are an FDA-approved, anti-aging treatment in which a low dose of botulinum toxin is injected into the skin. Although botox is commonly used for cosmetic purposes, it can also be used to treat various medical conditions. Our Reno botox treatment can be used to counteract fine lines and wrinkles, along with migraines, hair rejuvenation, hyperhidrosis, and spasticity. To illustrate, here are some of the benefits of botox for your body and lifestyle:
Reduce Chronic Migraine Pain
Patients with intense migraines or recurring headaches can find relief with a botox injection. This process involves a series of injections around the head and neck that decrease the severity and frequency of chronic migraines or headaches. It works by entering the nerve endings around the area it’s injected and blocks the release of chemicals involved in pain transmission. And it also helps treat the side effects of migraines such as nausea, sensitivity, and vomiting. For the treatment to be successful, you’ll need to have the injections done about every 12 weeks.
Repair and Rejuvenate Hair
Our Reno hair botox treatments rejuvenate and regenerate the hair around the scalp. This cosmetic treatment contains a blend of collagen, proteins, and antioxidants that work together to repair damaged hair. In order for you to get the luscious and full hair you want, the treatment works by filling in any broken or thin areas on each hair strand. The result is thicker, softer, and healthier hair. So, if you’re looking for a product to help you reduce dandruff, keep your scalp clean and stimulate hair growth, this treatment is just what you need.
Reduce Wrinkles and Lift Your Face
One of the most widely recognized benefits of Botox is the application to the face and wrinkles. For this process, patients will receive Botox treatments that are injected with a diluted form of a safe toxin. The toxin causes the relaxation of overactive muscles that cause lines to form across the face. Thus resulting in rejuvenation and lifting of the face. By using botox to treat wrinkles on the face, you’ll see a reduction of crow’s feet, under eye wrinkles, wrinkles in the forehead, and also raised eyebrows and eyelids.
Prevent Excessive Sweating
For patients who suffer from hyperhidrosis, botox could be the solution you need. Hyperhidrosis is a condition that causes excessive sweating in the underarms, head or face, hands, feet and across the body. When Botox is injected in the affected area, it can be used to treat this condition temporarily. To do this it interrupts the signal from the nerves that trigger excessive sweating. As a result, Botox treatment can help counteract excessive sweating for 4-5 months before the area needs to be re-treated.
One of the most innovative breakthroughs in the use of botox involves its applications to stroke and cerebral palsy patients. Now, botox injections can help patients who suffer from spastic movement regain control over motions in their arms and hands. This application can help anyone diagnosed with limb spasticity, a condition resulting in the muscles becoming overactive in the arms and legs. Fortunately, with a botox treatment injected directly into the overacting muscles, it can give relief to patients. It does this by interrupting the signal telling muscles to move and contract.
