Botox is a great way to make sure that you look your very best for all of your upcoming Thanksgiving festivities.
One of the things that we love about Botox is its versatility. Botox can be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead, between the brows, and at the corners of the eyes. But it’s also a great way to lift the brow without surgery, reduce excess sweating, or just look a little younger and fresher at Thanksgiving dinner. We also love how long-lasting Botox is. Most of our patients see results for about 4 months after a Botox treatment. That means that one injection will keep you looking refreshed throughout the holiday season and into the new year. (more…)

The same drug that smooths out your skin can help soothe your headaches if you suffer from chronic migraines. Severe, recurrent headaches significantly affect patient’s quality of life. Botox, consisting of botulinum toxin type A, decreases frequency of migraines in some patients.
Botox for Migraines
Botox is prescribed for people who have severe debilitating migraines. It is not approved for use in adults who suffer fewer than 14 headache days every month. Each headache episode must last at least four hours.
American Academy of Neurology
American Academy of Neurology recently updated its guidelines and approved the use of Botox for migraines and certain other neurological disorders. These include:
- blepharospasm – a condition causing a disabling eyelid closure
- cervical dystonia – involuntary contractions of the neck and upper shoulder muscles
- adult spasticity
- spinal cord injuries.
While the FDA approved Botox for chronic migraines in 2010, American Academy of Neurology did not include Botox treatments for migraines in its guidelines until April 2016. Scientists aren’t exactly sure how Botox works in reducing chronic migraine, although research indicates it may inhibit pain by reducing pain pathway expression involving specific nerve cells.
The injections are performed on certain areas of your neck and head. Patients receive injections roughly every three months for about a year. As a result, most patients enjoy significantly more pain-free days.
Botox has not yet been scientifically proven to work on tension, cluster or other types of headaches.

Laser hair removal is the most effective way to remove unwanted hair. In some patients, laser hair removal is permanent, while others may require “touch-ups” annually. Although sessions you undergo for laser hair removal are quite straightforward, there’s a great deal of science behind the procedure. Laser is actually an acronym of “Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation,” and the device releases light of a specific wavelength. Lasers weren’t originally used for the purpose of hair removal, but researchers noted in the 1970’s that using lasers for other medical uses resulted in hair loss. (more…)
