As the saying goes, you’re only as old as you feel. But what if premature wrinkles and loss of facial elasticity make you feel older than you should? That’s where Total health comes in.
Here at Total Health, our team is well trained in Botox®, an effective, FDA-approved injection therapy that can safely and effectively slow down the outward signs of aging that typically manifest across the forehead, between the eyebrows, at the sides of the eyes (“crow’s feet”), and surrounding the mouth.
Botox is also used to enhance lips – a technique we call a “Lip Flip.” A Lip Flip is when Botox is injected into the cupid’s bow to give a more outward or flipped look of the lips. This process only takes about 10 to 20 minutes and is often a good choice for those who are nervous about committing to lip fillers. Lip Flips offer a more subtle change to one’s physical appearance because it does not alter the natural shape of your lips. The procedure is less invasive and less permanent, only lasting about 4 to 6 weeks, so it can help patients warm up to the idea of lip fillers in the future.
Because results with Botox® treatments vary as much as our clients’ concerns, your Total Health doctor will talk to you to determine what is best for you before creating your personalized treatment plan.
If you feel your confidence is suffering due only to a correctible cosmetic concern, be sure to contact us here at Total Health for help.
Botox for Axillary Hyperhidrosis
This treatment of Botox is specifically aimed to help with excessive underarm sweat, and most insurances cover it! Although it is completely normal and necessary for the body to sweat, some people suffer from producing too much unneeded perspiration in their underarms. Many people who suffer from axillary hyperhidrosis are constantly dealing with uncontrollable and bothersome sweat. This condition is not life threatening but going untreated could result in some physical and emotional issues.
How does Botox help Axillary hyperhidrosis?
Botox is an inhibitor that will block specific nerve signals that are responsible for underarm sweat. This ultimately stops the body from generating too much moisture. In your Botox session you will be injected with botulinum toxins, which is the component that blocks these signals. Depending on your body, Botox may last anywhere from 4 to 14 months. Once the previous injections have worn off, another quick 10-15 minutes of Botox will help you continue your sweat-free life. Many patients explain that their experience with Botox has been completely tolerable and beneficial. If you are constantly struggling with excessive underarm sweat, Botox may be the solution that can stop this aggravating condition.
There’s a new anti-ager in town, and its name is JEUVEAU®!
JEUVEAU® is an FDA approved Botulinum toxin that is used to relax the small muscle groups that cause dynamic wrinkles on the face. Yes, Jeuveau is just like Botox!
JEUVEAU® treats areas at the forehead, between the eyebrows, sides of the eyes, and surrounding areas of the mouth. These injections work by temporarily preventing your nerves from telling your facial muscles to flex. This results in improving the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines.
Because JEUVEAU® results vary according to each individual, make sure you contact us for a free consultation to ensure this treatment is right for you.
Botox for Chronic Migraines
Botox does not only enhance one’s appearance but has also been proven to treat chronic migraines for almost 10 years, and most insurances cover it!
3.3 million US adults have chronic migraines. Chronic migraines are not just your average headache or “episodic migraine,” they are an intense head pain that some may not realize are occurring far too often than they should. When they are this bad, they are actually classified as a disease.
How does Botox help migraines?
Migraine symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to lights, sounds, and smells may be diminished by receiving one quick 15-minute Botox treatment every 3 months. Botox is injected into pain fibers that are present during headaches. Botox will enter the nerve endings at the site of injection and then block the chemicals that cause you pain. The blockage prevents activation of pain networks in the brain.
Injection locations for migraines:
- Between and over your eyebrows
- Top of your forehead and/or hairline
- Sides of the head above your ears
- Back of your head
- On your shoulders
Botox is the first FDA approved preventative treatment for chronic migraines. It has been treating other therapeutic conditions for years and is the #1 prescribed branded treatment for Chronic Migraines.
We are proud to offer this 15-minute treatment that can change lives forever. If for some reason your insurance does not cover this treatment, Botox provides a payment plan that can help you save up to $1500 per treatment.
If you have been dealing with this disease for way too long now, please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions and our team will work with you to see if this service is right for you.
