Botulinum toxin type A is produced by a specific bacteria that causes the food poisoning botulism. Botox® ( the brand name for medicinal botulinum toxin type A ) is the purified low-concentration form of the toxin.

While there are many uses for Botox®, we at Garnet Med Spa specialize in using this product to help establish a younger and smoother looking face. Botox® injection involves injecting the formula into targeted muscles to reduce the depth of fine lines and wrinkles. This product works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles or muscle groups under treatment to create a more youthful face.
