BOTOX® is a protein derived from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum. Interestingly, it was first used clinically by the ophthalmologist Alan Scott in the treatment of strabismus (crossed eyes). At the Las Vegas Eye Institute, we use it cosmetically to substantially reduce wrinkles of the upper facial region. Dr. Swanic has been utilizing this treatment for years on patients, close friends, and even his own family members with excellent results!
BOTOX® is great for removing unsightly forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. This is especially important in Las Vegas where the bright sun already inflicts enough UV damage on our skin!
BOTOX® can also be utilized in the treatment of blepharospasm (an unconscious forceful squeezing of the facial eyelid muscles). Dr. Swanic also has substantial experience in this area and administers these treatments with BOTOX® as well.
