How Botox is making a difference for those with chronic migraines

migraine patientIf you asked the average person on the street what Botox did, the chances are that they would give you one answer, and one answer repeatedly; it smooths out wrinkles and makes the patient look younger. And this is correct. Botox does have the ability to relax certain muscles in the facial area that will give a much more pronounced youthful look, and for many people they would consider this to be the only use of Botox that they would see – but that is just not true. There are seemingly more and more uses for Botox in a medical setting every single year, as more research throws up more understanding of exactly how we can use the chemical, and that means that in the last few years, Botox is starting to be used for these other reasons for more often than the traditional cosmetic surgery route. So what exactly are they?

Well, one of the most popular medical uses of Botox is to treat migraines. These chronic headaches can last for days, if not weeks, and can affect people’s vision and balance, making it almost impossible for them to do anything while they have the migraine. Some people are unable to drive during a migraine, and the pain can be absolutely unbearable, preventing them from being able to listen to anything or even be in the light. For some people, this can be a monthly or even weekly occurrence, and this is described as chronic migraines, something that has almost no treatment options available. Until now. It has been discovered that Botox injections in certain places around the head and neck can actually change the pressure points within a patient, and this can lead them to stop having chronic migraines, a truly miraculous change for someone whose life has been ruled by them.

Of course, there are some within the medical community who are not entirely convinced by the efficacy of Botox injections for chronic migraines, and they point to the placebo effect, an acknowledged part of medicine that can make it very difficult to prove whether a treatment is actually working, or whether the patient is just so convinced that it is working that their mind tricks their body into thinking that it is getting better again. Those who do not believe that Botox could have such a positive effect on the body base this on their understanding of the chemical itself; one of the most potent poisons that has ever been discovered on this planet, they find it difficult to accept that something so deadly can actually have such a positive impact on a person’s health.

But if you speak to the patients who receive Botox injections for their chronic migraines, what do they think? Well, many of them do not seem to care whether it is the Botox itself or their own minds that are doing the healing – they are just glad to be able to return to their normal lives of going to work, picking up the kids from school, and simply not have to worry about a sudden rush of nausea telling them that a migraine is coming on. They just trust that the Botox isn’t doing them any harm, and that is enough for them. Why question what is already working?

A Dozen Medical Uses For Botox That Can Change Lives

Botox isn’t just for wrinkles. Some medical uses of Botox can very literally change lives. Here are 12 significant medical uses for Botox that go way beyond dealing with wrinkles:

  1. Excessive sweating. Botox was approved by the FDA for treating hyperhidrosis in 2004. In addition to underarm sweating, it can help with hands and feet that sweat too much as well.
  1. Overactive bladder. In one study, 70 percent of women treated for overactive bladder reported just 3 leaks a day compared with 5 leaks a day without treatment. But care must be used because Botox can shut down the bladder more than desired, requiring the use of a catheter in some cases.
  1. Crossed eyes. When eyes do not line up – a condition called strabismus that impacts about 4 percent of people – Botox treatment can weaken some muscles and allow the eyes to come into alignment.

depressed woman

  1. Depression. Although not approved by the FDA, some trials suggest Botox works for depression. Many medical professionals are skeptical. The idea is that facial expressions impact mood, and Botox can make negative facial expressions impossible.
  1. Abnormal heartbeat. When an abnormal heartbeat occurs after open-heart surgery, Botox may be able to help. But the benefit is not completely proven yet, and once again, some medical professionals are skeptical. Time will tell just home promising this development is.
  1. Premature ejaculation. When injected into the penis, Botox can relax muscles and delay ejaculation. More research is being done to make sure this really works. Allergan has patented Botox as a way of treating erectile dysfunction.
  1. Very cold hands. Injections of Botox into the hands can relax muscles that cause poor circulation. Blood vessels then enlarge, allowing for more blood flow in the hands, relieving the condition. It may not sound like an important condition, but poor circulation in the extremities is bad for overall health.
  1. Cleft lip scars for babies. Injecting the scar from cleft lip closure with Botox can hold the muscles still so they can heal better and without distortion. This can mean a better-looking lip for the rest of the patient’s life.
  1. Painful sex for women. Women who experience pelvic floor muscle spasms or constriction of the vagina can experience pain during sex. Botox can stop muscles from contracting and ease pain. Injections are needed every 6 months to 2 years.
  1. Teeth grinding. By relaxing the jaw muscles, Botox can reduce teeth grinding and clenching as well as the pain and teeth damage that comes along with it. Dentists sometimes recommend Botox for teeth grinding because many other usual treatments don’t work.
  1. Neck spasms. Botox was approved for frown lines in 2002, but approval for treating severe neck spasms came in 2000. The condition is called cervical dystonia and involves an abnormal head position, jerks, twitches and lots of pain. Botox helps.
  1. Facial wrinkles. You already know about this one, right? But wrinkles can cause emotional distress in some people, and Botox can reduce facial wrinkles, allowing a patient to feel more youthful. You can’t underestimate the impact of fewer wrinkles on a person’s emotional health.

And that’s not all. Every day, doctors and dentists are finding new uses for time-tested and proven Botox. When used properly by a well-trained medical professional, Botox can make faces look better and also dramatically change lives by reducing or eliminating symptoms that don’t respond well to other treatments.

Botox Is FDA Approved For Migraines, Excessive Sweating And More

It all started in 1992. That’s when Dr. William Binder, a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon, noticed that people he treated with Botox were reporting having fewer headaches. The maker Allergan did trials on people with chronic migraines. In 2010, Botox was approved for the treatment of migraines. Some believe the placebo effect accounts for the drug’s impact on migraines. Others swear it really works.
Either way, people treated with Botox for migraines have fewer headaches.

Other options for migraines include antidepressants, anti-seizure medications and blood pressure drugs – all of which have side effects. With several injections placed carefully at locations on the head and neck, many patients experience positive impacts that can last as long as 3 months or even longer. And the side effects are few.

Excessive Sweating And More

hyperhydrosisOnce medical professionals realized that Botox has uses beyond the treatment of lines and wrinkles, doctors and scientists went to work trying to determine what conditions it could improve besides migraines.

Excessive underarm sweating came to their attention.

In 2004, Botox gained FDA approval for the treatment of excessive sweating. That happened because doctors had noticed in the years before that patients they treated for facial spasms weren’t sweating as much after Botox injections. So Allergan and an outside company began studying the connection between Botox and reduced sweating. Today, Botox is used for treating sweaty hands, feet and more.

The product is also FDA approved for treating overactive bladder. As many as 70 percent of women studied had fewer leaks when they were treated with Botox.

Even crossed eyes respond to treatment with Botox. The FDA has approved Botox for treating this problem that impacts as many as 4 percent of Americans. When the eyes don’t line up, muscles can be injected with Botox to relax them, which can allow the eyes to line up better.

Other Conditions Show Promise Too

A number of conditions are treated with Botox “off label” – that is, without FDA approval. When drugs are approved for use by physicians and dentists for certain conditions, these professionals sometimes choose to use the drugs for unapproved purposes as well, and this practice is allowed.

Off-label uses for Botox include the treatment of depression, premature ejaculation, abnormal heartbeat after open-heart surgery, abnormally cold hands, painful sex and severe neck spasms.

In the case of depression, little is known about how Botox can help. One theory relates to facial feedback – the idea that our expressions influence our moods. Since Botox can make negative facial expressions impossible, depressed patients can feel better. Studies have shown about a 50 percent success rate with treating depression with Botox, and more research is necessary.

Where premature ejaculation is concerned, research has shown that injecting the penis with Botox can relax muscles and delay ejaculation. Allergan already has a patent for the use of Botox to treat some forms of erectile dysfunction.

One particularly interesting off-label use of Botox is in treating cleft lip scars left behind in babies who have their cleft lips closed. Botox injected into the scar can relax muscles and allow the area to heal in a position that will lead to a more natural smile and less scarring later.

And the story continues every day.

Medical professionals continue to find new uses for Botox, and scientists continue their research. But this much is certain: Botox is for much more than lines and wrinkles.

Looking Younger: Botox Is For More Than Crow’s Feet And Frown Lines

If you ask most people what Botox is used for, they’ll tell you that it softens or eliminates lines around the eyes and deals with creases between them too.

Despite Botox being used for years for many other cosmetic purposes, many people don’t realize just how far this Allergan product reaches into the cosmetic treatment industry.

The Many Uses Of Botox For Cosmetic Purposes

botox modelToday, medical professionals are using Botox to provide a temporary facelift. The right amount of Botox injected into just the right locations can make the jaw look more shapely and youthful, lift the nose tip up and reduce forehead wrinkles for as long as 3 months.

That’s right: the nose can be improved in appearance with Botox. The nose sags with age, but Botox can lift the nose, taking years off the face in a matter of minutes. The injection is done at the base of the nose, releasing some of the hold of the depressor muscle that causes the nose to sag down. Once this is accomplished, the improvement can be dramatic.

Dramatic impact is also possible from tightening the jowls. As the jawline ages, it becomes less defined. Botox can be used along the jawbone muscles to pull the skin up and make the jowls and jawlines more crisp and defined.

Some people are even having Botox instead of dermal filler around their lips. While fillers add volume to the lips to make them look plumper, Botox injected along the top edge of the top lip can cause the edge to turn out slightly. This results in a natural-looking out-turning of the lip, which enhances volume and adds to youthfulness.

Even More Uses You May Not Know About

Perhaps the uses above make sense to you since they’re all about relaxing and tightening muscles. But that’s not all Botox can do.

Did you know that Botox can help manage acne by reducing oil production? While a massive amount of the product would be necessary to use Botox as the only treatment for problem acne, it can help in the treatment of specific areas. Very small amounts of Botox injected shallowly can reduce oil in specific locations without impacting facial expressions. When used along with other treatments, it can make a real difference, especially on the forehead.

Botox is also used to reduce the lines that develop between some women’s breasts. Doctors inject the pecs, and the lines ease away – just as facial wrinkles do.

Plus, people who feel bad often look bad too. Botox can help reduce migraines, reduce symptoms from excessive sweating and make teeth grinding and clenching more bearable. Even your hair can look better when your forehead and scalp are treated to reduce sweat. That means an expensive hairstyle that usually lasts only a single day can last days after treatment to reduce sweat. It may seem insignificant to some, but those who always need to look their best may find this benefit appealing.

Still More To Come

Researchers aren’t through studying Botox either. These uses for Botox to make you look and feel younger aren’t the only ones known, and more options are being explored all the time. Doctors, scientists and others are working together to expand the usage of Botox to even more cosmetic and medical uses.

If you’re a medical professional and you’d like to add Botox injections to your practice, you need to explore the Dentox course schedule. In-person and online training is available to fit every schedule. When you add Botox and other injectables to your practice, you’re boosting your bottom line while enhancing the satisfaction of many of your patients. What could be better?

New Non-Surgical Face Lift Technique for Doctors Only Takes 30 Minutes!

face lift patientAs a doctor, you will probably see many patients come into your consulting room who are worried and concerned about the effects of ageing – and particularly the physical effects that their face is having to undergo. It is true that for many people, the first place that you see ageing is in their face and this is an area of the body that is very difficult to hide, and in some cases patients will get very self-conscious about the way that they look, and the way that other people see them. If they come to you asking for cosmetic surgery advice you should suggest the new non-surgical face lift treatment that is taking the medical world by storm – it only takes you thirty minutes to perform, and your patient will be able to see the difference immediately, something that almost no other treatment can offer. Even better, the treatment lasts for almost two years, so they won’t even have to think about it for ages. So who created this new treatment?

Dr Howard Katz is the man, drawing from his decades of experience with injectables and the facial area. His treatment plan is called DentoX LIFT, and is a very non-invasive approach to reversing the signs of ageing. By creating new support for the muscles and fat that is no longer supported by the bone structure – particularly around the mouth and cheekbones – he can create a fresh new face in a patient who had previously struggled with feeling older and more tired. The dento-facial contouring is something that absolutely anyone can learn, as long as they learn from the expert, and it is then a treatment option that you will be able to give your patients directly, rather than having to refer them to a cosmetic surgeon.

This is often beneficial for both doctor and patient. You build up a rapport with your doctor, as a patient, and you want to be able to stay with someone that you trust and get your treatment from them. Why would you want to go anywhere else? This non-surgical face lift enables patients to do exactly that, and there are plenty more benefits besides. Because the treatment is very slight and gentle, there is no chance of scarring or needle holes being prominent, and as it is all done under local anaesthetic rather than a general anaesthetic, your patient will be able to walk out of your consulting room and get back to their day without any problems. There’s no rest period or downtime; they can get back to their jobs and families without a care in the world – just looking younger.

Ten years ago – five years ago – the idea of a non-surgical face lift was a pipe dream. Now it is a reality, and one that doctors should be offering their patients to help give them the confidence that they may be lacking. Talk to Dr Howard Katz today about how you could be changing the lives of your patients, one needle at a time.

New 30 Minute Non-Surgical Face Lift Technique for Dentists

It may be hard to believe that a dentist can perform a non-surgical face lift for any of their patients – let alone one that only takes thirty minutes! – but that is exactly what is available to anyone who undertakes this special training with Dr Howard Katz. His secrets are now going to be available to anyone who is willing to learn, and that means that soon you and any other dentist who is smart enough to take the training for non-surgical face lifts can start to really offer something new and exciting to their patients. So how on earth is it possible for a dentist, someone who is not initially trained in any sort of cosmetic surgery, to be able to give a non-surgical face lift to a patient?

dentox lift

Well, Dr Howard Katz offers training on the DentoX LIFT, which is an intra-oral procedure that is non-invasive, and offers an innovative solution to the problem of ageing. The treatment is a true non-surgical face lift, giving facial contouring in a youthful manner that simply didn’t exist before, and will dramatically change the way that your patient’s jawline, cheekbones, lips, and smile will look. What is even more impressive – and what makes this non-surgical face lift so popular – is that the results are almost instant, and so both you and your patient will be able to see the difference before they walk out of your clinic. What’s more, this non-surgical face lift is not a procedure that has to be performed every month in order for the results to be visible; most patients only need the treatment every eighteen months!

Ageing can have a dramatic effect on the face and it is there that we see most of the indicators of ageing, and so having a non-surgical face lift is the quickest way for a patient to look – and therefore feel – younger. As a dentist, there are also other treatments that you can offer in combination with this new non-surgical face lift, such as teeth whitening, or veneers over old and cracked teeth, in order to create a youthful and healthy look. After all, your dental patients do not want to have long complicated, expensive, and painful procedures! They want to be in and out of your dentist’s chair as quickly as possible, without having to undergo a general anaesthetic, and without having to take time off work. That is exactly what this non-surgical face lift offers. So how does it work?

Put simply, the bones in our face get thinner and weaker as we get older, and this will eventually lead to less support for the rest of the face, leaving it looking a little deflated like a balloon at the end of a party. The DentoX LIFT restores this structure, giving the face a stronger, more youthful, and more held together look that is completed in minutes. Why not see whether you can get involved with Dr Howard Katz’s teaching so that you can start to offer the almost unheard of non-surgical face lift to your dental patients?

Nurses: You Can Offer Patients Non-Surgical Face Lifts

One of the greatest challenges of being a nurse, even when you are completely trained and have been for years, is that many patients are completely unaware of just how knowledgeable you are. After all, most of the medications that doctors prescribe you know are about to be prescribed, and you probably know more about their effects than they do! A great way to gain your patients’ trust is to be able to offer them some of the treatments that they want yourself, and what better than something like a non-surgical face lift: giving them the gift of looking and feeling younger? Dr Howard Katz is currently offering this training to nurses to give them even more skills.

non surgical face lift

The procedure is called DentoX LIFT, and works by creating facial contouring in the places that generally show the first and most noticecable signs of aging: the lips, jawline, and cheekbones. By providing more support in these areas the patient can achieve a much more youthful impression, and only a local anaesthetic is required with little to no recovery time. Patients will enjoy the effects of the non-surgical face lift for up to two years, at which time they will need another thirty minute procedure to restore the results. That’s right: the entire DentoX LIFT procedure only takes thirty minutes, which gives you the chance to see as many patients as you can, giving them each the chance to return back to their youthful looks.

Within your training for the non-surgical face lift, you will learn all about the different facial structures in the body, from bones, to muscles, to nerves, in order to first understand exactly what it is that makes us look older as our bodies change, and then exactly what we need to do in order to reverse these changes. Understanding the face in this detail is vital for successful non-surgical face lift treatments, and could greatly hep in other areas of nursing too. Each patient will be different, so you will be given training on how to assess a patient physically and mentally, and gain a clear understanding of exactly what it is that you will need to do in order to give the non-surgical face lift successfully.

What makes this non-surgical face lift technique so popular is that there are so many benefits to it that no other program currently has. For example, the DentoX LIFT non-surgical face lift does not create any skin inflammation or injection holes so the treatment is not that noticeable, important for patients who do not want to draw attention to the fact that they have had the treatment. There are instant results that the patient will be able to see before they leave you, and no scars from the treatment so nothing can go wrong. Patients can immediately go back to work if they wish, the non-surgical face lift is so gentle, and they can enjoy a natural, refreshed appearance that will truly give them confidence.

So what are you waiting for? Make sure you sign of up for the  upcoming DentoX LIFT training in Los Angeles now!
