Botox or botulinum toxin-A is a neurotoxin produced by a bacteria named Clostridium botulinum.
Botox is being used for multiple neurological conditions.
A small dose of botulinum toxin is injected into the affected muscles to block the messages that are sent from the nerves to the muscles and reduce spasms. It can also help reduce the frequency and intensity of migraine headaches.
As the effect of toxin reduces and nerve endings can regenerate. As a result, improvement is time-limited and treatment is usually repeated every 3 to 4 months.
Side effect from this treatment is limited when administered by a qualified neurologist. This includes temporary weakness in the group of muscles being treated, or those nearby.
We offer Botox injection for treatment of migraine headaches, hemifacial spasms (Blinking or twitching of the muscles on one side of the face) and blepharospasm (i.e. Blinking or twitching of the muscles on one side of the eye), neck spasm (dystonia), bruxism, etc.
