Botulinum Injections

Northwest Neurological is a pioneer in the use of botulinum toxin injections to treat a variety of neurologic disorders. When Dr. Greeley came to Spokane in 1993 and began treating patients with Botox® injections, no other neurologist had injected Botox in the state of Washington.

Four botulinum toxin drugs are offered at our practice: Botox, Xeomin®, Myobloc®, and Dysport®. All four may be used to treat a variety of conditions including: cervical dystonia, blepharospasm, drooling, hemifacial spasm, writer's cramp, spasticity, headache, hyperhydrosis as well as cosmetic applications (specifically, the reduction of wrinkles).

Injecting botulinum toxin is now fairly common and the procedure is considered very safe. To learn more, read the literature published by the National Institutes of Health and the Mayo Clinic.

If you are interested in injections for cosmetic reasons, there are a number of people in Eastern Washington/Northern Idaho who perform the procedure. Some providers do the injections very cheaply, and price can certainly be a consideration. However, selecting someone to do this work should not be based solely on price. Dr. Greeley has been injecting toxin longer—since 1990, so close to 30 years—than any other provider in Eastern Washington/Northern Idaho and he is a board certified neurologist. His understanding of facial nerves and muscles gives him insights that few others have.

Appointments can usually be made in a relatively short time frame, since the procedure takes no more than five or ten minutes. To see how you might look after an injection visit the site Botox Real Patients, Real Results.
