Botulinum Toxin Injections


Overview :

The number of potential applications for botulinum toxin extends to every muscle group. The first therapeutic use of Botox was in the treatment of strabismus (eyes are unable to direct toward the same object) and since then it has been used to treat a variety of involuntary muscle contractions or disorders. Its cosmetic use is the result of treatment for facial spasms where smoothing of facial lines was reported by patients. In general, 90% of injections for facial spasms are resolved satisfactorily.

Toxin type A has a duration of effect that lasts approximately three months and is the therapeutic agent of choice for most conditions.
