Here at The Savin Center, we are aware that Botox can help with many medical ailments, such as excessive sweating. Interestingly, new research suggests that Botox may soon be used to treat other medical conditions.
According to a new study showcased in the August 20th issue of Science Translational Medicine, researchers are testing Botox® to help deaden nerves to make them more susceptible to chemotherapy. Norway has started testing Botox as a treatment for stomach cancer, and a clinical trial involving mice has begun at Columbia University to further investigate this research.
While this new research is still in the early stages, the uses for Botox at The Savin Center have long been demonstrated as safe and effective. Here at The Savin Center in New Haven, Botox is used to temporarily weaken nerves in the face that cause frown lines and crow’s feet to form. This muscle interruption leaves our patients with youthful, rejuvenated and refreshed results.
At The Savin Center, board-certified dermatologist and the top CT cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Lisa Donofrio, makes sure that she provides her New Haven clients with a natural appearance. Her meticulous technique means that our patients never experience a “frozen” expression, and usually have results that last three to four months. However, with regular treatment, results can last even longer.
Whether or not Botox is a cancer-fighter, we sure know that it fights wrinkles for our New Haven County and Fairfield County patients!
