To determine if Botox may be a good solution for their condition, patients are encouraged to speak with both their physician and to an expert at Art of Facial Surgery.

The Art of Facial Surgery, a cosmetic surgery clinic located in Toronto, has offered Botox to customers for years. Most know Botox as a way of ironing out wrinkles and making the skin look smoother. It has more uses than that, however, and Art of Facial Surgery is now offering Botox for additional treatments.

It’s estimated that almost 3 million people get Botox every year. When injected around the mouth, the forehead, or under the eyes, more than 80 percent of patients begin to see fewer wrinkles within a week. Dr. David Ellis, founder of Art of Facial Surgery, has advocated Botox treatments for a number of patients who wish to improve their appearance. Now he also recommends Botox for three other issues.

The first is excessive sweating, also called hyperhidrosis. Hyperhidrosis is an issue that many people do not realize is an actual medical condition. Some believe they simply sweat a lot because they’re nervous or because of the heat. However, hyperhidrosis isn’t always related to stress or climate. Those who have to deal with this embarrassing condition may be able to get relief from Botox. Botox treatments can help control excessive sweating on the face, armpits, and palms, helping reduce anxiety and stress.

Another use of Botox is to help those who constantly grind or gnash their teeth during the night. This can lead to a number of different problems, including wear and tear on teeth and damage to the jaw. This condition, called Bruxism, is often treated by the patient wearing a mouth guard while sleeping. However, another option is to use Botox treatments to help relax the muscles in the jaw. This can prevent grinding and helps with the pain associated with the condition.

The third innovative use of Botox is for those who suffer from migraines. While some over-the-counter pain relievers work for some migraine sufferers, others can’t even find relief with prescription strength drugs. Migraines can be debilitating, leaving people unable to work or perform even basic tasks. Botox has been proven to help prevent migraines by relaxing muscles and relieving tension. This can stop migraines from forming in the first place, providing relief to those who have suffered from these strong headaches.

Aft of Facial Surgery will offer Botox treatments to patients who need relief from hyperhidrosis, Bruxism, or migraines in addition to those who seek cosmetic surgery. To determine if Botox may be a good solution for their condition, patients are encouraged to speak with both their physician and to an expert at Art of Facial Surgery.
