Five years ago it was difficult to find anyone who performs Botox treatments for migraine headaches, but nowadays there are a variety of physicians (and many non-physicians) advertising for this specialized service.
There’s certainly nothing wrong with having options, but it’s helpful to be educated about what makes a Botox treatment successful for migraines, and what might be a waste of money.

DID YOU KNOW that a laser can be used to permanently reduce the number of hyperactive sweat glands in the same way that it reduces the number fat cells during laser liposuction?
Well, it’s true, and that is why you may sometimes see this procedure referred to as “SweatLipo”. There is no actual liposuction involved in the treatment of excessive sweating, but the laser fiber that is used can be the same or similar in both procedures.

A new study from German researchers suggests that Botox is an effective treatment for clinical depression!
In their study, men and women being pharmacologically treated for clinical depression received Botox injections to their glabellar region (the area between the eyes), and their level of depression was assessed 6 weeks later. In 80% of these patients, their level of depression improved significantly (in both subjective and objective measures). The patients noted that they generally felt better, and their scores on scientific examinations designed to measure their level of depression improved. In the placebo group, only 20% of patients noted an improvement.
“This is a very interesting study,” says New York Plastic Surgeon Dr. Nicholas Vendemia. “There are quite a few people in Manhattan that deal with significant levels of stress on a daily basis, and I’ve heard from many of them that they generally ‘feel better’ after their Botox treatments. They say things like ‘I just don’t feel as stressed out when my Botox kicks in’, and I’ve been hearing these testimonials so frequently that it is ironic that this study was just published.”
Dr. Vendemia adds, “It makes sense if you think about it. When you look angry, frustrated or tired all the time, people react to you as if you are those things, and that starts a feedback loop that can become a vicious cycle that keeps you feeling angry, frustrated and tired. Botox interrupts that feedback loop, and not only changes how you feel, but changes how others react to you.”

Botox is turning out to be something of a wonder drug…
We all know that it’s the gold standard for treating fine lines and wrinkles, and that it’s very effective for treating migraines, and excessive sweating. But now, Botox is being used to prevent hair loss and treat male pattern baldness!
In a research study of 50 men who received Botox injections to their scalp experienced an 20% increase in hair growth, and a 40% decrease in hair loss! The study participants received two injection sessions spaced 6 months apart. Botox seems to be a great way to add some additional effectiveness to topical treatments like Rogaine, and to oral treatments like Finasteride, and also a great way to delay, or replace. expensive surgical treatments like hair transplantation.
