Botox and Dysport for Medical Uses
Botox® Cosmetic and Dysport® are also used medically to help with various conditions.
Patients with tension and migraine headaches can benefit from Botox injections, including some patients who are not helped by other medications.
Excessive sweating – hyperhydrosis
Botox injections for sweaty armpits, hands and feet are very effective in most patients. Botox blocks the nerve impulse to the sweat gland so that the nerve cannot stimulate sweating. Most patients have injections twice a year.
There are other conditions where Botox® Cosmetic is also used including eyelid spasm – blepharospasm, eye alignment – strabismus, and some tear duct issues. Casey Eye Institute's Facial Aesthetic Surgery Center has the experts you can trust to care for your eyes and eye-related conditions.
