Botox is an injectable form of botulinum toxin. When injected into the body, Botox works as a sort of muscle relaxant, reducing or halting muscle contractions.
Though many still associate Botox with aesthetic applications, Botox has a variety of medical applications that can help patients suffering from certain neurological conditions. Some of the common conditions Dr. Singh treats with Botox injections include:
Botox can provide relief for general muscle spasms in various parts of your body, including recurrent facial spasms and muscle twitches.
Dr. Singh provides Botox injections as a preventive method of reducing the intense pain associated with migraine headaches and reducing their recurrence for up to 12 weeks following treatment.
Muscle tightness, or spasticity, that occurs in the limbs for many stroke survivors is treatable with a local injection of Botox.
Botox injections are an effective treatment if you suffer from excessive sweating in the hands and armpits, also known as severe primary axillary hyperhidrosis.
Botox injections are a simple outpatient procedure and in most cases, you can continue with your daily activities following treatment.
For migraines, Dr. Singh administers injections into your head and neck at specific sites. You should feel only the small pinch of a needle during treatment.
Botox injections are safe as administered by Dr. Singh and you should experience little to no serious side effects from the injection. Some patients have reported minor side effects from injections, including:
Botox injections typically last for three months before the effects wear off. For chronic pain such as migraines, Dr. Singh will recommend a regular injection regiment of three months, or 12 weeks, to maintain the effects of the treatment.
If recurrent migraines, spasms, or even excessive sweating are dragging you down, call Dr. Singh at Clinical Neurology to book your appointment, or schedule online.
