What Else is Botox® Used For?
Neurotoxins such as Botox are well known for smoothing fine lines and wrinkles but that is only a tip of the iceberg of benefits this product can produce. Here are some of the ways we can use Botox®
Botox® for Chin, Jaw, and Neck
. Chin: Getting Botox® in the chin area is a common solution for chin dimpling, a condition that occurs when the muscles in the lower face become overactive, resulting in an orange peel appearance to the skin.
. Jaw: Jaw Botox® treatments target the masseter muscle and help reduce the appearance of a clenched jaw, thus slimming the face and helping reduce teeth clenching at night which in return helps with jaw pain and migraines.
. Neck: Neck Botox® injections are a popular solution for both horizontal and vertical lines along the neck. Smoothing and relaxing the lines in the neck.
Repair Damaged Hair
Using Botox® for migraine treatment is perhaps one of its best-known non-cosmetic applications. Initially approved by the FDA in 2010, regular Botox® treatments can reduce both the number and severity of chronic headaches, including migraines.
Botox® for Pain Management
The use of Botox® for pain management is usually concentrated in the neck and jaw. Chronic conditions such as bruxism (teeth clenching/grinding) as well as pain in the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) can be treatable with Botox®.
One of the oldest uses for Botox®, treating eyelid spasms known as blepharospasm, started in 1989. Used in this manner, Botox® is FDA-approved for patients 12 and older.
The use of Botox® for excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, is another popular medical application, and one that we offer at The Rejuva Center
Dermal Filler Highlight: RADIESSE®
RADIESSE® is the first and only FDA- approved CaHA portfolio that provides immediate contouring plus stimulation of collagen and elastin production. Upon injection RADIESSE® CaHA gel matrix immediately creates a "scaffolding" effect that actually stimulates collagen. RADIESSE® is commonly used to correct volume loss in face and hands but can also be hyper diluted to assist in collagen production and sagging skin such as loose neck skin.

Hylenex Filler Removal: What You Should Know About It?
While fillers are generally great and safe treatments, there are rare occasions when patients are unsatisfied with their results. Whether it is because they received the treatment from someone who wasn’t experienced enough to give the desired results or simply liked the way they looked before the treatment. In this case, flexibility is now one of the favorite things about fillers, as Hylenex Filler Removal offers the option of reducing or reversing them.
What Is Hylenex?
Hylenex is an FDA-approved injectable designed to dissolve HA (Hyaluronic Acid) fillers. It is made from a protein found naturally in the body called Hyaluronidase, which naturally disperses HA. Hylenex, when injected into the skin, works to break down the HA from the dermal filler at an accelerated rate so that the body can absorb it quickly.
When Is Filler Dissolvant Hylenex Usually Used?
Most dermal fillers available today are made up of hyaluronic acid, composed of gel–like, moisture-retaining molecules that provide skin firmness, promote collagen production, preserve hydration, and maintain skin elasticity. In case of unwanted or harmful results from dermal fillers, Hylenex (Hyaluronidase), a reversal agent, can be injected into the skin to dissolve those fillers.Since HA is a naturally occurring substance found in the skin and joints, most dermal fillers injected worldwide comprise hyaluronic acid. The good news is HA fillers are reversible and are temporary. Furthermore, Hyaluronidase, an enzyme found across many species, can be used as an antidote to dissolve the HA fillers.
