Botulinum Toxin Miami
Dynamic wrinkles are caused by contractions of delicate underlying facial muscles every time you smile, laugh or frown.
Botox is the trade name of botulinum toxin type A, a purified protein that is a byproduct of the toxin that will block the conduction of nerve impulses to muscles, causing a form of muscle relaxation in the area injected.
Safe and used for many medical treatments such as hyperhidrosis.

- Botulinum toxin type A (Botox)
- Used for past 15 years
- Lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time
- As skin becomes less elastic repeated muscle contraction results in frown lines between the brows
- Botox is a purified protein that smoothes the muscles by blocking nerve impulses
- With a few tiny injections, BOTOX blocks the release of acetylcholine, the chemical that causes muscles to contract
- With less movement, the skin surface gradually smoothes out and the lines begin to fade
Botox also improves “Gummy” smile.
Hyperhidrosis is a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest.
- Hyperhidrosis is the result of increased secretion of eccrine sweat usually palms, soles, forehead
- May be indicative of underlying disease
- Significant impact on quality of life
- Botox. Botulinum toxin type A (Botox) was approved by the FDA in 2004 for the treatment of severe underarm sweating, a condition called primary axillary hyperhidrosis. Small doses of purified botulinum toxin injected into the underarm temporarily block the nerves that stimulate sweating. Side effects include injection-site pain and flu-like symptoms. If you are considering Botox for other areas of excessive sweating talk to your doctor in detail. Botox used for sweating of the palms can cause mild, but temporary weakness and intense pain.
