Botox is more than just a cosmetic treatment, it has been proven to help with medical ailments, such as hyperhidrosis and chronic migraines. Schedule an appointment with us to see if these treatments are right for you.
Treatment of Hyperhidrosis with BOTOX® (Excessive sweating)
Excessive sweating is a troublesome problem for those that are affected. Previous treatments for excessive underarm perspiration – which is known as axillary hyperhidrosis – were often ineffective and short-acting, or were associated with significant risks. By using Botox injections to block the release of acetylcholine, which activates the sweat glands, it can relieve excessive sweating, a life-altering procedure for those who suffer from this. Botox is effective in temporarily reducing or abolishing sweat production in treated areas.
What about BOTOX® for Chronic Migraine Help?
Therapeutic Botox received FDA approval for treatment of chronic migraines in 2010 and is effective for treating this form of headache. After a detailed medical history and examination, Dr. Rheault will discuss with you in detail how this therapeutic option could benefit you and allow you to regain control of your headaches.
Some third-party insurance plans may cover the cost of the medication; however, the injection costs are not a covered benefit. Dr. Rheault can assist patients with their insurance needs.
