The Uses For Botox In Medicine



Over the last several years, Botox has gained wide acclaim for its use in the reduction of lines and wrinkles. As research has continued, there have actually been several studies that show various benefits that this substance has on various other medical conditions. There are actually many uses for this medication in a medical setting. In order to understand why Botox is such an effective treatment for various ailments, it can be helpful to understand how it works. It is actually produced by a type of bacteria called Clostridium botulinum. When this toxin is present in large amounts, it can cause botulism. When used for medical purposes, it is greatly diluted and injected directly into the muscles. This medication has a weakening effect on the muscles that causes them to relax. Extensive research has been done so that the proper amounts for safe use are well-documented. 

For many years, these injections have been successfully used to treat strabismus and blepharospasm. Both of these are eye conditions. Strabismus is a condition that results when one ocular muscle is weak so another muscle overcompensates. This causes the eyes to lose focus. When Botox is used in the treatment of this condition, it is injected into the muscle that has been overcompensating. This paralyzes the muscle and allows proper focus to return. Blepharospasm is a chronic type of twitching that affects the eyelid. These injections can also be used in this condition, paralyzing the muscle that twitches and relieving the discomfort that is associated with the problem.

Botox can also be used to treat hyperhidrosis, or profuse sweating. This is a condition that affects many people and can be extremely uncomfortable and embarrassing. It has been found to be most effective when it is used in people who experience excessive sweating in the pits of their arms. When it is injected into the site, it inhibits the production of the specific hormone that causes certain glands to produce sweat.  

Another way that this substance can be used for medical purposes is for any type of spasms. It has specifically been proven effective with spasms in the neck and face. The reason for this is obvious. By relaxing the muscle that is subject to excessive or sporadic contraction, it helps to eliminate any spasms that may otherwise occur. 

In recent years, Botox has also been proven useful in preventing migraines in people who suffer from the chronic onset of these debilitating headaches. Although it is most famous for its cosmetic use, there are also many important medical uses for this medication.
