BOTOX® is most commonly considered an injectable designed solely for aesthetic purposes. However, many patients are turning to BOTOX® for medical reasons as well. The minimally-invasive procedure has helped countless men and women improve their quality of life through a simple, in-office visit.
At Fundamentals Med Spa, we’re using BOTOX® for a variety of purposes including both functional and cosmetic. Patients can see improvement in just a few days with optimal outcomes lasting upwards of 6+ months. Let’s take a closer look.
How Does BOTOX® Work?
BOTOX® is a unique neurotoxin that blocks signals from nerves to the muscles. For cosmetic uses, the injectable is best suited for dynamic wrinkles that are caused by repetitive facial movements. But severing the nerve-muscle communication can also help combat a range of medical conditionals.
BOTOX® for Medical Conditions
Many patients are surprised to learn just how many doctors are using the minimally-invasive injectable. BOTOX® is used by doctors in all fields ranging from neurology, podiatry, and even urology. So, what are some common conditions BOTOX® is used for?
#1: Excessive Sweating
Excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) can be a source of embarrassment for many men and women. The condition occurs as sweat glands overreact when attempting to regulate temperature. BOTOX® can be used to stop glands from triggering excess sweat on the face, hands, armpits, feet, or head.

#2: Eyelid Spasms
Eyelid spasms are often treated with BOTOX®. The injectable is able to improve droopy eyelids or an uncontrollable twitch caused by hyperactive nerves. If your eyelid spasms are affecting your day-to-day activities such as driving, it might be time to consider enlisting the help of BOTOX®.
#3: Chronic Migraines
Migraine tension headaches can be quickly tamed with BOTOX®. The injectable is placed at strategic points to relax migraine-causing muscles. BOTOX® may be able to help you if you’ve exhausted all of your at-home options and would like to combat migraines before they occur.
#4: Bell’s Palsy
Bell’s palsy is a condition that is caused by pregnancy, diabetes, or certain viruses like Lyme disease. The most common result is a droop on one side of the face. While Bell’s palsy is generally temporary, the condition can be bothersome for many. BOTOX® is able to help aid in the recovery process by relaxing facial muscles.
#5: Excessive Drooling
BOTOX® is safe and effective for treating drooling. The injectable is placed directly into the salivatory glands paralyzing the nerves from over-producing saliva. If you are suffering from excessive drooling, regular BOTOX® treatments may be the solution for you.
