Danielle Sheehan is a 24-year-old model who has suffered from eczema since childhood. Over the years she tried numerous treatments including creams, pills, lotions, and ointments to treat it, but nothing worked. When Sheehan had her first Botox treatment for cosmetic reasons 18 months ago, she noticed she wasn’t having any more of her typical eczema flare ups. Sheehan believes Botox may have cured her eczema.
“It was so good,” Sheehan said. “I told my surgeon and she said there is some research to suggest Botox is good for eczema.”
Edinburgh University published a study in 2012 that revealed Botox could possibly remedy eczema. As a medical treatment, Botox has also been studied in it’s use to improve migraines, overactive bladders, and involuntary muscle spasms.
As a cosmetic, Botox is the #1 nonsurgical treatment in the United States. Recently, Actavis Pharmaceutical acquired Botox manufacturer, Allergan, in a $66 billion dollar deal. By 2018, Botox is predicted to have 3 billion in sales.
National Laser Institute is the leading medical esthetic school in the nation that trains medical professionals to perform cosmetic Botox treatments. This includes practicing Botox to rid fine lines and wrinkles in the facial region, creating an overall youthful appearance.
“Millions of people receive Botox for cosmetic purposes each year,” Louis Silberman, National Laser Institute’s Founder and CEO explains. “We’ve trained countless medical professionals who want to capitalize on offering this cosmetic service to clients, but it amazes me that Botox also presents so many truly phenomenal medical benefits too.”
