Brotox works as a shield between the brain and the muscle so that, even if your brain is telling a muscle to move–whether this is on purpose or because of misfiring neurons–the muscle will stay still, thus causing a firm appearance.
Brotox Benefit #1: Treat a Drooping Brow
Also called “Brow Ptosis,” drooping brow can cause patients to look unhappy and tired even when they are feeling awake and happy. In some instances there are biological reasons for the droop and you might advise your patients to eat more vegetables, exercise their facial muscles, etc. Many times, however, intervention is needed. Administering Brotox results in the relaxing of the brow muscles and, when administered correctly, can keep them aloft.
Brotox Benefit #2: Stop Excessive Sweating
“Hyperhidrosis” is defined by the National Library of Medicine as “a medical condition in which a person sweats excessively and unpredictably. People with hyperhidrosis may sweat even when the temperature is cool or when they are at rest.” Your patients probably won’t care about this. They’ll likely just want to stop sweating so much.
Explain that, just like Brotox can prevent directions given by the brain from reaching the intended muscle, it can also act as a shield for sweat glands. It is particularly helpful for excessive localized sweating in the patient’s armpits, feet or hands. Make sure to tell them that they’ll need to repeat the procedure every few months but the smart money says they’ll choose the treatment over the skin conditions they risk developing from having to walk around in damp clothing and shoes all day.
Brotox Benefit #3: Reduce Migraine Pain
Many of your practice’s migraine patients will have probably read up on the use of Brotox as a treatment for their condition. This means that you won’t have to do much convincing with them, but you will have to manage expectations. Many migraine sufferers make the mistake of thinking that the drug stops the migraine itself. It doesn’t. It will, however, reduce many of their major symptoms like sensitivity to light and nausea, making the migraine easier to deal with.
