Botox has many uses and benefits. Treatments with Botox help with wrinkles and fine lines, excessive sweating aka hyperhidrosis, and it’s being clinically tested for other medical uses. Princeton Botox is still considered a relatively new drug with long term side effects still being studied. However so far it has been considered a safe drug when administered by a qualified medical doctor such as one in our medical spa in Princeton.

So what are the benefits of Princeton Botox Injections?

botox-princetonBotox is extracted from a bacteria known as Clostridium Botulinum. It can be quite dangerous if consumed with food that has gone bad, but it was studied for that same reason that it is able to freeze the muscles, and thus a cosmetic drug was developed from it to assist doctors with anti-aging treatments where superficial muscles on the face are frozen to allow skin to smooth out and wrinkles to disappear for a period of time, usually up to 4 months. It works simply to stop the movement of the facial muscle to when you try to make an emotion or movement of the face that emphasizes the wrinkle Botox switches off that muscle and the wrinkle cannot be produced.

Even though the above procedure to reduce wrinkles is the most common on the aesthetic market, Botox has been shown to treat migraine type of headaches and it has shown to satisfy both the patients and their doctors due to absence of side effects, while pain medications cause a lot of them.

Hyperhidrosis treatment is another use of Botox where it is applied to the areas on the body with excessive sweating. There are various methods used to combat hyperhidrosis such as prescription antiperspirants, the long term effects of which are not known, and these medications do little help for those suffering with heavier forms of hyperhidrosis. Botox on the other hand can take care of those suffering with hard to treat forms of excessive sweating.

New forms of Botox Treatment

Medical community is currently studying Botox with hopes to combat arthritis pain. The first studies have shown a decrease in pain and functions improvements of people suffering with various forms of arthritis. The benefits have shown to last from 6 to 12 months. There will be more controlled studies done in order to determine how useful and safe Botox can be at treating these issues.
