Botox is an injectable product derived from the botulinum toxin. While it stems from the same microbe that can give you botulism, it’s completely safe in its modified form when administered by a medical professional, such as your New York dermatologist. Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 2002, Botox has helped thousands of men and women look better and feel better about themselves since then.

Botox is best known for being able to temporarily hide facial lines and wrinkles through sub-dermal injections, but it has other approved uses as well. For example, in the hands of a qualified doctor, Botox injections can:

  • Prevent migraine headaches in some people
  • Control an overactive bladder
  • Reduce how much you sweat, if it’s become a problem
  • Manage a condition known for repetitive neck twitches
  • Treat lazy eye

All symptoms, potential procedural/surgical options should always be discussed with your physician after a thorough consultation and examination  for an accurate diagnosis and treatment plan.
