Learn about the different issues that Botox in Vero Beach can handle.

Are you interested in seeing what your Vero Beach dermatologist, Dr. Larry Landsman can do to treat those annoying crow’s feet or Botoxforehead wrinkles? Then learn more about Botox and how it could easily smooth out common facial wrinkles.

What is Botox?

Botox is made from a neurotoxin that is produced by the bacterium known as botulinum toxin. When injected into the skin, Botox is used to temporarily paralyze certain muscle groups to decrease the development of future wrinkles and to smooth out the appearance of current ones.

What can Botox be used to treat?

Wondering if Botox could tackle your skin issues? Botox is FDA-approved to treat fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes (also known as crow’s feet), forehead, mouth and chin. However, Botox is being used more and more for non-cosmetic treatments. In fact, there are over 20 different medical conditions that Botox has been known to improve: Some of these conditions include,

Eyelid spasms: Many conditions that cause involuntary muscle contractions like this one can be relaxed with Botox injections.

Strabismus (crossed eyes): One of the most common causes of crossed eyes is a muscular imbalance, which can sometimes be corrected with Botox treatment.

Chronic migraines: Botox may be able to alleviate migraine headaches in those who experience them about 15 days out of the month.

Cervical dystonia: This condition causes the neck muscles to contract automatically, causing the head to turn in awkward and painful positions. Botox can reduce or even eliminate these painful contractions.

Overactive bladder: Botox has also been FDA-approved to treat urinary incontinence due to an overactive bladder.

Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating): Botox injections can be administered into the armpits to reduce sweat gland over-activity and reduce persistent and severe sweating.

If you are dealing with any of these health or cosmetic issues and are interested in finding out whether Botox could help then schedule an appointment with your Vero Beach dermatologist.
