Botulinum Toxin A blocks the release of acetylcholine at the end of the nerve, at the junction between the muscles and nerves. Acetylcholine is necessary to stimulate muscle contraction.

Botulinum Toxin A can be used in the treatment of migraines, excessive underarm sweating & pain in the temporomandibular joint. These conditions would require a diagnosis by the referring Doctor or Dentist.

The Botulinum Toxin A contains albumin from human blood, which means you cannot have this treatment if you are allergic to eggs.
