New Medical Spa: Teresa Camden MD, FACSM, based in Glen Allen, Virginia, has announced that they are offering Botox not just to minimize the appearance of wrinkles in and around the forehead and eyes but also to treat excessive sweating and other conditions. While Botox is commonly applied as a cosmetic treatment, it can also be utilized to treat conditions related to bodily functions, such as hyperhidrosis or excessive sweating, lazy eye, urinary incontinence, and chronic migraine.
Botox is composed of very small quantities of the bacterium Clostridium botulinum in a refined and purified form. What it does is interrupt the signals that cause the muscles to contract, resulting in fully relaxed facial muscles that ultimately lead to smoother skin. The FDA has approved the use of Botox for people who are 18 years old and above. Dr. Teresa Camden recommends that people start getting Botox early so as to prevent lines from ever forming on the face.
Botox injections may be used to prevent excessive sweating because the botulinum toxin is able to block the nerve signals that cause the sweat glands to release sweat. Retreatment is required after four to six months because the nerves will have regenerated by that time. However, over time, the period between treatments can become longer.

Botox may also be used to prevent the development of a lazy eye and to treat certain types of squint. If it is injected into one of the muscles that move the eye, the muscle will weaken and this will permit the eyes to straighten.
And for urinary incontinence, Botox may be used to cause a partial paralysis of the bladder muscle. It can also be used to target the nerves that control the feeling of urgency.
For chronic migraines, Botox is injected around the pain fibers that are involved in headaches. It will then block the release of chemicals that have to do with the transmission of the pain signals.
Aside from Botox, the New Medical Spa offers other non-surgical cosmetic treatments. Some examples are Kybella and JUVÉDERM. The primary ingredient of Kybella is a synthetic form of deoxycholic acid, which is a naturally occurring chemical in the body. Its role is to break down and absorb fat. When deoxycholic acid is injected into the body, it will immediately begin destroying fat cell deposits. Once the fat cells have been broken down, they will no longer be able to accumulate fat.
JUVÉDERM is considered to be one of the most effective hyaluronic acid fillers. It benefits the skin in two ways. First, it attracts moisture in the skin. Next, it stimulates the production of collagen. Thus, it will not just provide an instant lift but it will actually help in tightening the skin from deep within.
The New Medical Spa also provides weight loss medications. These medications work in different ways and it is the practitioner who will suggest the appropriate weight loss medication for a particular patient. Candidates for weight loss medication include people who have: Type II diabetes; a body mass index (BMI) of more than 27; high blood pressure (hypertension); high blood cholesterol; and a family history of obesity.
Some of the weight loss medications offered by Dr. Camden include: Qsymia, which is Topamax plus Phentermine; appetite suppressants alone, like Belviq or Phentermine; and Contrave, which is Naltrexone plus Bupropion (Wellbutrin).
