Botox® for Therapeutic & Cosmetic Use
BOTOX® is an injectible form of a protein (purified botulinum toxin type A), which is used to relax specific muscles for up to six months at a time. Its first clinical use was in ophthalmology, for certain eye-muscle disorders; it then expanded to other purposes.
At ESA we use BOTOX® to treat eyelid and facial spasms. Under certain limited conditions it is useful in treating certain types of headache. Under these circumstances the treatments are covered by most insurance policies.
We also offer and perform BOTOX Cosmetic® injections, to reduce facial and forehead wrinkles, especially in the glabellar area (between the brows) and for crow’s-feet.
