Treatments using botulinum toxin

If you think that Botox (botulinum toxin) treatments are used exclusively in aesthetic medicine, you couldn't be more wrong! Find out more about what we can offer here at Medicover Hospital, and you'll discover a whole new range of applications in which the botulinum toxin has gained popularity in recent years.

Obviously the most popular use of Botox is to restore a young, fresh and radiant appearance of the skin. It comes as no surprise then that an ever increasing number of women decide to undergo this treatment, given the fact that after the age of 21 the skin slowly starts to lose its firmness. Botox treatments are a non-invasive way of getting rid of mimic wrinkles and making your facial and body skin shiny and smooth.

Many of us would probably be surprised to know, however, that the botulinum toxin helps in the treatment of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) under the armpits, as well as on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet! It is the perfect method of getting rid of an embarrassing problem many of us have been haunted by for years. Treatment with botulinum toxin is currently estimated to be the most effective method of managing excessive sweating.

Frequent and recurrent migraine headaches affect more and more patients each year. No wonder the whole medical community is committed to a continued search for solutions to cure the problem. And one such solution is Botox treatment! As is the case with excessive sweating, botulinum toxin for migraine headaches is given in subcutaneous injections into "strategic" points of the body selected by the doctor.

As you can see, Botox has a wide range of applications in medicine. But that's not all. Botox is also used in the treatment of excessive tooth grinding called bruxism. If the tooth grinding you are suffering from is severe enough to be accompanied by frequent headaches and cracked teeth enamel, you should look into this method of treatment! Botox is also used in the treatment of urinary 
incontinence.
