Botulinum Toxin (Botox)
Dr. Soares has treated patients with Botox since 1992. He has more than 17 years of experience treating people with both medical and cosmetic needs.
Botox is a medicine that temporarily weakens muscles. Most people have heard of Botox for cosmetic treatments such as removing facial wrinkles. This is one use for Botox.
Another very important use of Botox is for medical treatment. Dr. Soares uses Botox to treat adults with strabismus (misaligned eyes). Botox is also used to treat patients with blepharospasm, a condition in which patients are unable to keep their lids open because they involuntarily close or spasm shut. Both of these treatments are in office treatments.
