Crossed eyes is an eye condition that causes the yes to look in differing directions. The way that Botox treatment can help with crossed eyes is by having it injected directly in to the eye muscles so as to improve the alignment.

Hyperhidrosis is a condition that is more commonly known as excessive sweating in areas such as hands, feet and more commonly the underarms.

Botox treatments are used to relieve the migraine symptoms. Botox injections are applied in specific areas of the head and neck and this will help to reduce the duration and frequency of chronic migraines. Eye dystonia is an involuntary eye muscle movement that can cause uncontrollable blinking or twitching of the eyes. The involuntary movements can really affect the day to day activities such as reading, writing and driving. Botox is administered to the overactive muscle that is responsible for causing the disorder. The results of the Botox treatment will not be visible up to two to three weeks after the procedure. Cervical dystonia is an uncontrollable urge to lean or twist the head or neck which can cause them to be in an awkward position. The involuntary movements of the head and neck muscles can cause severe discomfort and pain. The Botox treatment allows the muscles in the affected area to relax and to reduce spasms or tremors.
