Medical / Therapeutic Botox Treatments
Neuromodulators (commonly known as Botox, Dysport and Xeomin) are naturally purified proteins that relax muscles. Therapeutically, neuromodulators can be used to treat migraine headaches, teeth grinding and excessive sweating. The duration of treatment effect is approximately 3 – 4 months and the procedure has little to no down time. Considered a completely safe treatment, neuromodulators produce great results when administered by a highly trained and qualified injector like Dr. Dargie.
Headaches & Migraines
Neuromodulators are used therapeutically to treat chronic headaches. This is a non-invasive procedure that can help those suffering from tension headaches and migraines. The duration of effect can last anywhere from three to six months and many patients find they have longer periods of headache relief after two or three consecutive treatments.
Teeth Grinding (Bruxism)
Many people suffer from excessive teeth grinding or jaw clenching. Neuromodulators can help to relax the muscles and ease pain, preventing tooth damage, jaw muscle hypertrophy and the headaches that often accompany this issue.
Excessive Sweating (Hyperhydrosis)
Excessive sweating (hyperhydrosis) is a condition that many people find embarrassing or detrimental to self-esteem. Fortunately, many people find relief through the use of neuromodulators. As a therapeutic treatment, botox can be injected under the arms, or into the palms, soles of the feet, and the scalp. For many clients, this treatment provides significant relief.
