Reasons for Considering Botox

While Botox is mostly identified with its ability to smooth out wrinkles, it also has many uses for medical treatments. There are currently more than a dozen approved medical conditions that Botox can treat. Some of the reasons for considering Botox include:

  • Wrinkles
  • Younger appearance
  • Overactive bladder
  • Post-Stroke upper limb spasticity
  • Excessive sweating
  • Chronic migraine
  • Hemifacial spasm
  • Crows feet
  • Glabellar lines

If you have tried other treatments, and they just arent working for you, Botox may be the answer youve been looking for.

Benefits of Botox

Our medical staff is well versed in the many benefits for using Botox. Some of the benefits include:

  • Few side effects compared to the effectiveness of treatment
  • The possible blocking of the sensory nerves means that muscles relax and you feel less pain from spasms or migraines
  • Treatment is non-surgical
  • An effective anti-aging treatment
  • Minimal recovery time

Recovering from Botox

Botox is a popular anti-aging treatment due to the lack of recovery time. Patients can easily come in for treatment at our Plano clinic. Afterward, they can go on to perform normal activities. There are a few small restrictions for the first 24 hours after the procedure such as avoiding rubbing the injection sight and not taking NSAIDs or smoking as this will cause bruising. While some short term side effects may occur such as redness or swelling, these are usually gone within a few days following treatment.
