Troubled by the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, hyperhidrosis, or chronic migraines? Botox® may be a safe and effective solution. Bawa Medical is proud to offer Botox® injections for men and women in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and the neighboring South Florida communities.
What Is Botox®?
An incredibly popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure to reduce the appearance of dynamic wrinkles and fine lines, Botox® injections are made up of a neurotoxin called botulinum toxin, which is produced by a bacteria.
Botox® injections temporarily disrupt the process in which muscles communicate with neurons, resulting in a reduction of dynamic wrinkles and fine lines that are caused by muscle contraction. When the muscle is temporarily paralyzed, the appearance of the wrinkles are dramatically reduced.
Some of the facial wrinkles that respond best to Botox® injections include:
- Wrinkles above the upper lip (often known as lipstick or smoker’s lines)
- Lines at the corners of the mouth
- Bunny lines (wrinkles found on the bridge of the nose)
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Crow’s feet
- Wrinkles on the forehead

Do You Offer Botox® as a Hyperhidrosis Treatment?
There are many medical conditions for which Botox® is a treatment, and one of these is hyperhidrosis, the medical term for excess sweating.
For those that struggle with excess sweating preventing them from using regular antiperspirants, Botox® injections can help by blocking the overactive nerves responsible for activating the sweat glands. This essentially paralyses the overactive nerves. When the nerves can’t contact the sweat glands, then the patient will be unable to sweat in the specific areas in which the injection took place.
Is Botox® an Effective Migraine Treatment?
If you are suffering with chronic migraine headaches, a Botox® injection can help to cut down the number of days of suffering, and even provide more pain-free days than you would otherwise have had. In one study, it was reported that almost 50 percent of patients saw a 50 percent decrease in the number of days spent suffering with a migraine headache each month after just two rounds of Botox® treatment. Following five rounds of treatment, that 50 percent grew to roughly 70 percent of patients.
How Are Botox® Injections Performed?
Most often requiring no more than around 15 minutes, the Botox® procedure consists of a Botox® provider injecting very tiny amounts of Botox® into the target muscles with the help of special micro needles in order to relax dynamic wrinkles. While some patients have reported a minor discomfort and a pricking sensation during the injection, many report feeling no discomfort at all.
How Long Will Botox® Results Last?
The majority of patients usually see their Botox® results lasting for around three to six months, after which it can be expected for muscle action to return and the results of the Botox® to gradually fade. In spite of this, however, many patients will see their wrinkles and fine lines begin to appear less severe over time due to a shrinkage of the muscles. In order to best maintain your results, occasional follow-up Botox® injections in Boca Raton may be needed.
