A Different Way to Look at Botox
I am always surprised how many of my medical colleagues (and patients) are completely unaware of the benefits of Botox injections when it comes to the “medical intervention” of a couple of serious problems affecting millions of patients.
Botox for “hyperhyrosis” – excessive sweating
This condition affects between 8 and 10 million people. They suffer in silence; it’s a devastating condition.
We’re not talking about just excess perspiration here, we are talking about “flop sweat” – ruining shirts, dripping hands and underarms and feet, unable to shake hands with a potential boss due to excessive sweaty palms.
Not to mention trying to go out on a date or meeting your soulmate for the first time.
The condition is easily treated with Botox injections.
They don’t cause other side effects; they stop the sweating, period. Yes, you can still sweat from other pores, just not drip like a faucet.
Please come in for a consultation and discussion. We try to bill insurance when we can.
Don’t suffer in silence.
Botox for migraine headaches
OK, this treatment has been around for a while but I think there is a problem with how it’s being offered to patients.
Many patients are not taught that the treatment for migraine headaches with Botox (along with high dose Vitamin D for my patients) must involve repeated injection cycles every 4 to 6 weeks. It basically calms down the nerve endings, but they’re so used to being “angry” that it takes awhile.
Please come into the office and have your Vitamin D levels and magnesium checked. Simple dietary and nutritional supplements along with Botox treatment can make a big difference.
Remember Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.”
