Candidates for BOTOX treatment include healthy patients who have:
BOTOX can be injected into a variety of facial areas to treat many different types of wrinkles. These include:

Botox For Profuse Sweating

BOTOX when used correctly in the affected area works by blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands.

When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops. Sweat does continue to be produced in other areas of your body. While sweating is a way your body regulates your temperature, excessive sweating far exceeds the body’s need for cooling. Severe underarm sweating is a medical condition involving overactive sweat glands.

This can be attributed to the many factors that affect it directly & indirectly both. BOTOX has been used safely & effectively over time to control the extra sweating that causes discomfort.

Botox For Jaw Slimming

Patients with a strong chewing muscle are often referred to as having a “Square Jaw.” It is a condition that can be inherited, acquired by grinding the teeth at night or due to TMJ disorder.

Patients with excessively wide jaws find relief using BOTOX , thus avoiding the need for invasive jaw reshaping surgery.

Botox For Jaw Slimming Vs Wrinkles

As with any other BOTOX procedure, it needs to be repeated at intervals to keep the muscle weak just enough to allow expressions.

In the case of jaw slimming , a high loading dose of 100-150 units is used and then a progressively less dose is used in the followup sessions. Follow-up sessions are scheduled after 4 weeks, 10 weeks,16 weeks & 20 weeks.

In the case of facial wrinkling, a relatively lower dose of 30-40 units is used depending on the gender and the elasticity of the skin to begin with. Follow-up sessions are scheduled at 6 weeks, 16 weeks apart.
