Description of disability:

Muscle spasticity: When injected in small amounts, it can silence nerves near the injection site, effectively weakening a muscle for a period of two to eleven months. As such, botulinum toxin is used to treat a number of disorders characterized by overactive muscle movement, including spasms of the head and neck, eyelid, vagina, limbs, jaw, and vocal cords. Similarly, botulinum toxin is used to relax clenching of muscles, including those of the esophagus, jaw, lower urinary tract and bladder, or clenching of the anus which can exacerbate anal fissure. It may also be used for improper eye alignment. Cosmetics: In cosmetic applications, botulinum toxin is considered safe and effective for reduction of facial wrinkles, especially in the uppermost third of the face. Injection of botulinum toxin into the muscles under facial wrinkles causes relaxation of those muscles, resulting in the smoothing of the overlying skin. Smoothing of wrinkles is usually visible three days after treatment and is maximally visible two weeks following injection. The treated muscles gradually regain function, and generally return to their former appearance three to four months after treatment. Muscles can be treated repeatedly to maintain the smoothed appearance. Other: Botulinum toxin is also used to treat disorders of hyperactive nerves including excessive sweating, neuropathic pain and some allergy symptoms. In addition to these uses, botulinum toxin is being evaluated for use in treating chronic pain. Botulinum toxin is used to treat a number of problems.
