Botox® leads the way as the single most common aesthetic and medical cosmetic treatment performed each year. The environment in which we all live as well as the time and daily stress take their toll on healthy skin and bodies. While Botox® doesn't stop the skin from aging, it does return a wonderful rejuvenated appearance to the facial areas where it is applied. It is most commonly used to treat dynamic wrinkles: forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines. Botox® “paralyzes” the injected area so that the muscles used to squint or frown are no longer able to contract. Another common (but less discussed use) of Botox® has also been used to treat hyperhidrosis, or excessive underarm sweating by temporarily blocking the nerves that activate the sweat glands.
