Why Botox Should Be Part of Your Wellness Routine

Ever since doctors first introduced Botox® in 1978 to correct crossed eyes (strabismus)

and abnormal muscle spasms of the eyelids (blepharospasm), the scope of this potent neurotoxin continues to amaze. There’s clearly far more to this well-known facial wrinkle reducer than meets the eye.

Turn back time with Botox

As with any procedure, you must work with an experienced physician you can trust. This holds especially true for Botox injectables, which remain safe for most when applied by a trained provider. Utilizing his two decades of experience in primary care, urgent care, and pain management, Dr. Kauffman offers patients at his PRP in Philadelphia Center for Regenerative Medicine the chance to turn back the hands of time. The doctor injects tiny amounts of the bacterium to erase facial lines and possibly prevent new wrinkles from forming.

Found in lakes, soil, and forests, as well as within mammals, fish and shellfish, Botox bacteria produces a botulinum toxin that disrupts neurons in the nervous system. Since repetitive movements cause most facial wrinkles, Botox blocks muscles to prevent lines from forming in the first place. When injected with a tiny needle at the first sign of fine lines during your 20s and 30s, preventive Botox treatments may actually inhibit these from growing deeper.

Myriad uses beyond wrinkles

Dr. Kauffman injects Botox into your face to ease frown lines between your eyebrows, crow’s feet, and smile lines around your lips, erasing years from your face. Although wrinkle reduction remains its most popular usage, there are many other uses.

Ease migraine pain with Botox

Approved by the FDA for chronic migraines, Botox injected into nerve endings can block extreme headache pain. Although it may take 2-3 sessions to work, it can cut your migraine frequency in half.

Dr. Kauffman can inhibit migraines through muscle paralysis by injecting such sites as:

Dental applications

Botox inhibits the release of acetylcholine (ACH), a neurotransmitter that activates the contraction of muscles and gland secretion. When injected during a minimally invasive procedure, it can help manage such muscle-related dental issues as teeth grinding (bruxism) and TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder, giving you plenty more reasons to smile.

Why sweat it?

FDA-approved for the treatment of hyperhidrosis, or underarm sweating, Botox can help you regain your confidence. Dr. Kauffman injects it once every 7-16 months to temporarily block the chemical that stimulates your sweat glands, putting you quickly on board the no sweat express.

Relax an overactive bladder

When injected into the bladder, Botox relaxes overactive muscles, to lessen that urgent feeling.

Dr. Kauffman can help you look and feel your best, whether through Botox injections or other procedures found in his regenerative medicine playbook. Simply give us a call or book an appointment online with Dr. Kauffman at PRP in Philadelphia.
