Botulinum toxin (commercially available as BOTOX®, Xeomin® and Dysport) is injected into the muscles of the face by our qualified health care professionals to temporarily reduce wrinkles between the eyebrows (frown lines), forehead/furrow lines, crows feet (to the sides of the eyes), and can be injected to give you a lateral brow lift. In addition, Botulinum toxin can be injected to smooth out areas of the neck, the muscles of the jaw, and can help with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues, treat excess sweating of the underarms and, in some individuals, help alleviate headaches.
