Botox - Another Medical Condition Treatable with the Wrinkle-Busting Drug
Date:7/14/2013

Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) July 14, 2013

According to a July 5, 2013 Detroit Free Press article, titled “A New Wrinkle: Botox Can Banish Overactive Bladder,” those that suffer from overactive bladders generally experience urinary urgency numerous times every day making it difficult for some to enjoy activities that most people take for granted. However, a recent study has shown that Botox injections can relieve the symptoms of an overactive bladder (Go to goo.gl/q29Qv).

“In most cases, contraction of the detrusor muscle when it should be relaxing causes the urge to urinate frequently,” says Dr. Simon Ourian, Medical Director of Epione Beverly Hills. “Up to 33 million Americans suffer from overactive bladders and some go to great lengths to hide their condition, including staying at home and venturing outdoors for brief periods, using diapers and pads,or only going to places where they can easily access bathrooms.”

According to the report, researchers involved in a study conducted at the Jefferson University Hospital injected Botox into the bladders of the test subjects in order to help delay their urge to urinate. Botox helps bladder muscles to relax, thereby increasing one's capacity to store urine and decreasing the number of trips to the restroom. Early this year, the US Food and Drug Administration approved Botox as treatment for overactive bladder symptoms such as urinating involuntarily.

The article goes on to say that as many as 3.2 million Americans take anti-cholinergics to treat the symptoms of an overactive bladder. For people who suffer from autoimmune disorders such as Sjogren's Syndrome, a disease that causes one to develop dryness in the mouth and eyes, taking anti-cholinergics can exacerbate this symptom, making Botox an attractive treatment option.

“I think researchers have only scratched the surface of treatments that will be possible with Botox,” says Dr. Ourian.

Dr. Ourian has been a pioneer in laser technology and non-invasive aesthetic procedures including Restylane, Juvéderm, Radiesse and Sculptra. These treatments are used for the correction or reversal of a variety of conditions such as acne, acne scars, skin discoloration, wrinkles, stretch marks, varicose veins, cellulite, and others. More information the use of Botox to treat an overactive bladder can be found on Epione’s website.
