Medical Uses For Botox That Have Nothing to Do With Wrinkles

Medical Uses For Botox That Have Nothing to Do With Wrinkles | EncinoOver the years, Botox has received the FDA’s approval for the treatment of various types of medical disorders. However, it is vital that Botox is injected only by a qualified med spa treatment provider for safe and predictable results. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, provides Botox injections to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, Los Angeles, CA, and surrounding communities.  


In 2010, Botox was approved by the FDA for the treatment of migraines. While researchers are yet to establish the methodology of action of Botox against migraines conclusively, the outcomes have been undeniable. According to many researchers, Botox obstructs pain signals to the nerves as a neuromodulator. This offers a patient relief from migraines.  

Incontinence and Overactive Bladder

Botox injectable solution may be effective for patients who are above 18 years of age and suffer from urinary urgency or those who have a frequent need to urinate due to an overactive bladder. Urinary incontinence is often seen in patients with neurological or related conditions. Botox injections can also improve the condition of incontinence. The treatment provider will use a cystoscope to administer Botox precisely. Many patients report significant improvement with only two treatments a year.    


While medical research on Botox as a med spa treatment for depression is still in its initial stages, researchers already highlight the potential benefits of Botox for depression patients. They believe that when a person forms a particular facial expression, the corresponding nerves deliver feedback to the brain to prolong and reinforce those feelings. Due to its neuromodulating attributes, Botox may be able to effectively disrupt the signals of depression and sadness by targeting particular nerves. This approach may be able to restore a positive mind frame for the patient. Additionally, some researchers are studying the impact of cosmetic enhancements of the face, which may create the emotion of happiness and aid the patient’s battle against depression.  

Botox for Axillary Hyperhidrosis

Botox can effectively treat severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating of the underarms. The treatment is recommended for patients who are unable to get relief using antiperspirants. Excessive sweating occurs in both men and women, and almost three percent of the population has overly active sweat glands. Hyperhidrosis can lead to physical as well as psychological issues, which can cause distress, embarrassment, and discomfort. The Botox treatment for this procedure includes delivering a small dose of the drug (around 15 drops) directly into the underarm skin. Botox will immediately prevent the release of a chemical known as acetylcholine, which delivers signals from the sympathetic nervous system to the sweat glands in the underarm prompting the production of sweat.  

Treatment of Serious Muscular Conditions

Human muscular malfunction may develop if the muscles stop working or become paralyzed, or if they become hyperactive, leading to spasticity or cramping. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a serious disease that can occur when communication between the muscles and nerves starts to break down.   This condition is called spasticity. Due to the disruption of communication, muscles tend to cramp all the time. Consequently, the insulation on the ‘power cords’ gradually disintegrates within the body. In this procedure, the doctor will identify the impacted muscles with a tiny electrode and then inject them directly with Botox.
