Botox Q & A

What is Botox?

Botox gained popularity for its cosmetic uses, but the prescription injection can do more than improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The neurotoxin in Botox has the ability to temporarily stop the movement of the muscle at the site of the injection by blocking the nerve signals.

Dr. Hammett first worked with Botox during its early research and development days and has extensive experience with all its uses, from medical to cosmetic. The Hammett Clinic utilizes many neurotoxin brands, including Xeomin®,Jeuveau™, and Myobloc®, which allows them to use Botox for multiple applications.   

What are the medical uses of Botox?

Botox was first developed as a treatment for movement disorders, but it’s list of medical uses continues to grow. Dr. Hammett offers Botox injections to help relieve many common chronic medical conditions. Currently, Botox is FDA-approved to treat:

  • Severe underarm sweating
  • Blepharospasms (severe eye blinking)
  • Overactive bladder
  • Strabismus
  • Migraines
  • Cervical dystonia

If you’re seeking Botox for medical treatment, Dr. Hammett and the team at The Hammett Clinic can conduct an evaluation to determine if you would benefit from the neurotoxin. While Botox is an effective treatment for many health concerns, the effects are temporary and may last three to 12 months, depending on the condition being treated. You may also need several injections to get the desired effects.

Dr. Hammett is an expert in Botox treatments so you can rest assured you’re in the best hands possible.

What are the cosmetic uses of Botox?

Botox is the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic treatment in the United States. Botox is FDA-approved for the treatment of skin care concerns like moderate to severe lines and wrinkles that lead to crow’s-feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles.

Botox softens the appearance of the creases and lines that develop over time by stopping the movement of the muscle under your skin. The team at The Hammett Clinic have many years of experience with Botox injections and know exactly where to place the medication to give you the desired subtle, refreshed look.

Your Botox injections can keep your lines and creases away for as long as four months. Dr. Hammett and his team recommend continued Botox injections to help maintain your look and increase the longevity of your treatment.
