Botox FDA Approved Uses

In 1989, the FDA approved the use of Botox to treat two common eye-muscle disorders: strabismus (misaligned eyes) and blepharospasm (uncontrollable blinking). It was during the clinical trials that doctors observed a side effect from the Botox treatment that was not only harmless, but it was positive for the patients.

After the Botox FDA approved injections, patients reported they had lost their frown lines and especially the glabella lines that appear as two vertical lines coming up between the eyebrows like the number 11. The miniscule amount of Botox used for controlling the eye disorders had given patients a younger and more relaxed appearance.

Botox FDA Approved Uses: Look Younger and Live Better

Sixteen years later, Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. In the early days after approval, the rich and famous were getting injections of Botox in Beverly Hills, New York City, Paris, Rome and London. But today, Botox treatments are for everyone. Botox injections are a safe and simple fix for many cosmetic and non-cosmetic issues from smoothing a lined forehead to urinary incontinence.

Is Botox a Miracle Drug?

Botox, a neurotoxin, has proved to be effective in so many cosmetic and medical treatments, that it is often called a miracle drug. People who have suffered from excessive sweating show astonishing results after Botox treatments. Long-time migraine sufferers have reported fewer headaches and with less intensity.

Even muscular, bladder and bowel disorders have improved with Botox treatments. It has even been used a non-surgical neck lift, offering a very successful double chin treatment alternative. Scientists predict that there are many more uses for Botox coming in the near future.

Botox for Anti-Aging and Beauty

Botox injections prevent facial muscle contractions, so the skin stays smooth, unwrinkled and unlined. Some studies indicate that Botox treatments may be able to permanently prevent wrinkles. If treatment is started before deep wrinkles and lines are established, results have been positive for long-term, wrinkle-free facial skin.

From 2002 to 2012, it is estimated that 12 million or more Botox treatments have been used to help men and women regain a more youthful and healthy appearance.

Botox is easy to love. Botox treatments are safe. Botox is affordable. Botox has no recovery period, so you can leave the treatment office and go right back to work or pick up the kids from school.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19 View Update Virtual Consultation


Coronavirus (Covid-19) Update

March 23rd, 2020

After serious consideration and in line with the recommendations of our State and Centers for Disease Control (CDC), we are closing the practice until Mid April.

Your health and well-being is our primary concern and we want to do our part to make sure that you are protected.

Effective immediately the following will occur:

  • All procedures and in-person consultations will be suspended until further notice.
  • The office will be available for Retail and PrePaid Packages as well as to answer any and all questions and concerns.
  • Virtual Consultations are available upon request.

We are constantly updating our services and staffing according to the local and national recommendations and will always place your health and well-being as our top priority.

We continue to exercise all the latest recommendations that are handed down by the CDC. These include:

  • Staff have been fully informed and trained to understand the disease process and its modes of transmission.
  • All staff, vendors and ancillary personnel are being asked to refrain from coming to this office if they have any signs or symptoms of a cold or an upper respiratory tract infection.
  • Every patient is also being asked to refrain from coming to the office if they have any symptoms.
  • We are asking our patients about any pertinent travel history.
  • Hand-washing continues to be the most important mode of prevention. Although it is a part of what we constantly do, now we are doing so with heightened vigilance and attention.
  • We have instituted a “no handshakes no hug” policy for now.
  • We have asked all vendors that any unnecessary meetings are canceled until further notice.
  • As we are an accredited medical facility, we are constantly sanitizing all surfaces. We have now vamped that up and our routine, multiple times a day, wiping down all surfaces, desks, door handles, keyboards and restroom facilities. We have assigned a person that does so on a constant basis.

Although Covid-19 is a serious issue, we strongly believe that it will pass and hopefully make our infrastructure and our ability to deal with pandemics in this Country even better than it currently is. We are monitoring this situation on a real-time basis and will not sit back until we know that we have done everything possible to avoid unnecessary exposure.
