Comprehensive Neurology Service provides cosmetic and medical Botox treatments.
Botox is very useful at treating a wide variety of neurological issues. It successfully treats muscle and joint stiffness, neck and back pain, cervical dystonia and problems with the muscles in the eye. It can also be used to treat excessive sweating and excessive tearing in the eyes.
Botox is a neurotoxin that is derived from Clostridium Botulinum. The type of Botox used in medical treatments and cosmetic treatments is created by using Botulinum Type A.
It works by paralyzing the affected muscles so that they no longer contract. This makes it very useful for treating a wide variety of muscle issues where the muscles refuses to relax. Botox can help with back pain, neck pain and tilted head.
Botox is used cosmetically to reduce the appearance of fine lines around the eyes, mouth and forehead. It’s very useful in treating wrinkles that are caused by muscle tension because Botox forces the muscles to relax. Once the muscles are relaxed, the skin lays flat against the muscle. Botox does nothing for wrinkles caused by the sun or other factors that are not related to muscle tension in the face.
Botox Side Effects
Botox is very safe to use in small doses. However, it’s not without side effects. Side effects can include bruising and pain around the injection site, stomach upset and symptoms that mirror the flue. In rare cases, Botox can cause mild headaches. If these symptoms appear and do not dissipate within 24 to 48 hours, contact your doctor.
It is also recommended that you do not rub or touch the injection site for 12 hours and should remain awake and upright for three to four hours after the procedure.
