- Botox injections
Botulinum toxin, often referred to by its trade name, Botox®, is a non-surgical injection that can diminish or even completely eliminate non-desirable lines and creases on the face and neck. The cosmetic form of Botox® temporarily blocks nerve impulses and paralyzes the muscles that cause wrinkles. The skin is left looking smoother and more refreshed. The usual areas for treatment include frown lines, forehead creases, crows-feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. Research has also shown that Botox can relieve migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
Your doctor will assess where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area.
Out patient procedure. No admission necessary.

During your consultation please inform your doctor of any allergies, all medical conditions, and any medication that you are taking (both prescription and non-prescription).
