BOTOX

When you hear the word BOTOX, your first thought may be of an injection that minimizes the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. And for good reason - BOTOX is among the most popular cosmetic skin treatments today.

But in addition to its ability to combat signs of aging, BOTOX carries a number of medical uses, including the treatment of migraines, excessive sweating, and movement disorders. At Coastal Pain Medicine, we've found that BOTOX is an effective treatment for a number of medical conditions, specifically movement disorders such a cervical dystonia, eye disorders such as crossed eyes, eye spasms, migraines, bladder spasms, and excessive sweating. If you are a candidate for BOTOX, our physicians will perform the procedure in our office. BOTOX will be injected into the muscle tissue. Over time, it will block signals from the nerve to the muscle, ultimately stopping the muscle from contracting. Typically it takes 24 to 72 hours to take effect, and the benefits of BOTOX can last a few months. Please call our office to make an appointment and see if BOTOX is the right treatment for you.
