Botox Q & A

What is Botox®?

Botox is an injected medication that has many different uses. Botox can be used to:

  • Smooth out lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce occurrences of migraine headaches
  • Stop excessive sweating

The injections work by blocking the nerve signals that tell muscles to move. Dr. Zarrini is a very experienced pain management physician who sees the value of Botox injections and uses them to help many of his patients.

How does Botox reduce the signs of aging?

Botox is best known for being able to smooth out lines and wrinkles. It works by stopping the movement of the muscle under your skin that creates the lines and wrinkles. Dr. Zarrini uses Botox injections to treat crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows.

During your beauty treatment, he injects small amounts of Botox into precise areas of your face to get the desired results. You should start to notice an improvement in your look within a day or two and the results may last for up to four months.

Can Botox help my migraines?

It’s possible that Botox may help reduce the number of migraines you experience each month. It’s only recommended as a treatment for chronic migraine sufferers who experience 15 or more migraines each month.

During your treatment, Dr. Zarrini places several injections around your head and neck to help you get relief. It’s not completely known how Botox helps migraines, but it’s been theorized that the injection may block the neurotransmitter that sends the pain signals to your brain.

For continued relief from your migraines, you need repeat injections every three months.

Does Botox help stop heavy sweating?

Yes, it can. Heavy sweating, medically referred to as hyperhidrosis, is a common and embarrassing problem that causes you to sweat excessively. If less invasive treatments fail to reduce your armpit sweating, then you may be a candidate for Botox injections.

To get the benefits, Dr. Zarrini places several injections into your armpit to halt the extreme sweating. Repeat injections may be necessary to manage the condition.
