Knoxville BOTOX® CosmeticMost of our patients in Knoxville are already aware that BOTOX® Cosmetic delivers great results in reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. However, did you know that there are alternative applications for this injectable in-office treatment?

BOTOX® Cosmetic can be very effective in treating other ailments aside from facial wrinkles and flaws. Conditions that Dr. Dean Kleto may recommend alternative BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments for include:

  • Excessive sweating
  • Chronic pain
  • Migraines or severe headaches
  • Muscle spasms
  • Overactive bladder
  • Lazy eye

BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking chemical signals to nerve endings, temporarily relaxing muscles at the injection site. Because of this, it is very helpful in treating the conditions listed above. The effects of this cosmetic treatment can last up to 6 months. However, ongoing injections may be required to maintain your results.

Whether you want to use BOTOX® Cosmetic for obtaining a more youthful look or for alternative applications, Dr. Kleto and his experienced team can help. Dr. Kleto has over 25 years of experience delivering cosmetic results to his patients. To determine if BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is right for you, he will meet with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that addresses your needs and goals.
