Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) Injections

Botox is a marvel of modern medicine. Botulinum Toxin, one of the deadliest of all chemicals known to man, is now widely used to remove wrinkles almost like an eraser. Botox® works by permanently ruining the nerve endings which go to your muscle. While lethal in large doses, it can be injected in a very dilute form to selectively paralyze muscles. In our case, we are concerned with the muscles of facial expression.

Wrinkles come from three things: gravity, sun damage, and constant use of our muscles, as with the fine lines around our eyes when we smile, or the furrowed brow of concern. With the muscles of the forehead and around the eyes, lines may form in the skin from constant contraction. We have discovered that if we paralyze the muscles, the lines go away. At Shea, we can perform this simple procedure right in the clinic chair.
