Biography: Firas Al-Niaimi
Botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) is renowned for its inhibitory effects on the neuromuscular junction and is widely used in cosmetic dermatology. The evidence for its use in cosmetic dermatology and in non-dermatological indications is well established and more and more applications of its use beyond cosmetics are being discovered. In this presentation the currect evidence for the non-cosmetic dermatological uses of BoNT will be presented as well as my own personal; experience. The use is ion a multitude of dermatological diseases, including (but not limited to) hyperhidrosis, Darier’s disease, Hailey-Hailey disease, pompholyx, scarring, rosacea and hidradenitis suppurativa. Tips regarding the method of use and combination treatments will be discussed.
