Little information has been published regarding the use of Botox® treatments for Raynaud’s, so we were glad to find a useful article on the Warm&Cool.com web site.
It covers such questions as:
Overall description of how Botox® works for mainstream cosmetic surgery applications.
Off-label applications for the drug, including treatment of chronic migraines and Raynaud’s.
Explanation of how Botox® works to block nerve activity to stop vasospasms involved in Raynaud’s attacks.
How the procedure works, including where surgeons make injections on the hand.
How long the treatment lasts and potential side effects.
Listing of clinical studies involving the drug for Raynaud’s patients.
Criteria for likely candidates for the procedure.
While initial tests are promising, they are limited, and Botox® is not a permanent cure, nor an option for every Raynaud’s sufferer, but it’s good that this level of information is being made available. Here’s a link to the full article: Botox as a Treatment for Raynaud’s
