BOTULINUM TOXIN INJECTIONS
When you think "botox", you are thinking of Botulinum Toxin Injections - but Botox itself is just one of the many brand names that this miracle toxin is manufactured under.
Botulinum toxin injections claim to fame comes from their power to reduce fine lines and wrinkles in the face, providing a more youthful and rejuvenated look.
Facial fine lines and wrinkles are caused by repeated muscle use over time. Areas of our face that we use to show expressions also cause wrinkles and lines to form. To reduce these problem areas, the goal is to reduce the muscle use. When injected into the muscles of the face, Botulinum Toxin gently paralyzes the muscles preventing them from contracting - therefore softening and reducing wrinkles and fine lines both immediately and over time.
The most common areas for these treatments are the frown lines, crows feet, forehead wrinkles lower face wrinkles. The treatment takes effect immediately and results can be seen over 1-2 weeks and last for 4-6 months.
These injections are also used to augment the amount certain areas of the face are impacted by muscle movement, to increase facial symmetry in areas like the brows and lips.
We work with only the most reputable brands, such as Dysport, Botox and Xeomin. Your service provider will help determine the best product for your needs during your consultation. Botulinum injections are priced per unit, and the final cost of your treatment will vary depending on how much product is used to reach your final result.

Migraine/TMJ and Jaw Tension Treatment:
Botulinum Toxin Injections are used as alternative treatments for TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders and associated jaw tension and pain. Injections into facial muscles affiliated with soreness and discomfort, BTI's relieve jaw tension and lessen pain in many patients.
The temporo-mandibular joint is located on both sides of the jaw and is used during talking, eating, swallowing and other everyday activities. If this joint becomes displaced or is overworked, a person may suffer severe tension headaches. BTI's help relieve this pain by limiting the muscles ability to engage in these movements. The treatments are quick and minimally invasive, often offering improvement within 1-2 days of the first treatment, although relief can take up to one week. For more information, contact us.
Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating):
BTI's have proven their effectiveness in treating excessive sweating of the armpits, hands, feet, head, face and other small body areas. When used to treat underarm sweating, BTI's have been shown to result in an 82-87% decrease in sweating.
These toxins are used to block the nerve signals responsible for sweating, stopping the sweat glands from overproducing and causing uncomfortable and often embarrassing results.
Typical results take between 2-7 days but up to two weeks for full effects. Each patients results tend to last varying durations from person to person, but underarm treatments can last anywhere from 4-14 months.
