Botox is most often used to treat cosmetic based wrinkles and laugh lines on the face. It is derived from botulinum toxin-a, which can cause botulism in its natural state. However, cosmetic Dermatologists and other qualified physicians use only a purified form. Botox temporarily paralyzes the muscles in the injected area to eliminate the flaws. Multiple injections are given in the treatment area; results can be seen almost immediately.
Studies have also shown that Botox can be effective for other uses as well. One experimental treatment is the use of Botox to manage migraine headaches. According to the American Headache Society, 80% of 271 patients who were treated with Botox for their headaches stated that the pain was less frequent and/or less intense.

In addition, many of them had been overusing medications to relieve their pain. Also, they suffered little to no side effects, and Botox treatment was often cheaper than the standard drug treatment. The exact method of relief has not yet been determined, but tests indicate that Botox may eliminate tension in certain muscles around the head. Botox has also been used to treat hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating), dystonia (involuntary muscle contractions), and other conditions. These uses have not yet been approved by the FDA, but they are still believed to be very effective.
Botox should only be administered by a medical professional; self injection or “Botox parties” is not recommended and considered very dangerous. It is important to find a doctor with experience in performing your specific procedure. One type of error that can occur is directing the injection at the point of the wrinkle, when it may be that the injection should be directed in the area of the muscle contraction. And when you find a doctor that can do the injections, check your doctor’s qualifications. Has he or she done the procedure before? Where was he or she trained and in what specialty? How many times has he or she done this?
