Understanding Botox Treatment
Botox is typically thought of as a cosmetic tool for reducing wrinkles. However, Botox is also used to help treat spasms of muscles and facial muscles. Blepharospasm or hemifacial spasms are some of the medical reasons we treat with Botox. If you are considering Botox treatment, you should consult with Dr. Mitra to see if this is the right treatment for you.
Ophthalmology and Botox
Botox is safe to use in small doses and under the direction of a licensed ophthalmologist and is often used to treat certain eye conditions and wrinkles. Botulinum toxin is derived from a bacteria that affects the body's nerves and muscles. When the injected muscle, it prevents the muscle from contracting, therefore smooths out wrinkles over time and minimize spasms. Our experienced ophthalmologist can safely administer Botox around the eyes for functional or aesthetic purposes.
Benefits of Botox
Aside from helping to reduce wrinkles, Botox can also help reduce the frequency of eye spasms and overactive blinking. This revolutionary treatment has allowed individuals to experience more comfort in their everyday lives without undergoing invasive and dangerous procedures. Neurologists use Botox to relieve certain types of migraines. Some patients who have recovered from Bell's Palsy suffer from involuntary spasms on one side of the face (hemifacial spasms). This can adversely affect the patients quality of life and self confidence. Botox can be strategically injected into the spasming muscle to weaken the contractions. Regardless of your condition, our team will work with you to help find effective relief.
