Botox® is a registered trademark that has become a household name associated with the Botulinum toxin injections used in today's medicine. Other brands include Dysport®, Jeuveau ® and Xeomin®.
While it is commonly associated with cosmetic procedures,
Botulinum toxin was first approved for injection into the muscles that control eye movement and blinking to treat strabismus (lazy eyes) and blepharospasm (frequent forceful blinking). It can also be used to treat myokymia (eyelid twitching), hemifacial spasm and migraines. The use of botulinum toxin is something ophthalmologists are very familiar with.
In addition to treating medical conditions, we offer our patients cosmetic applications for the treatment of
Crows Feet (lines around the corners of the eyes)
Frown Lines (Glabellar folds)
