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. With the addition of Dr. Aldred to the practice in 2014, patients can expect an expanded level of service and expertise.

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 (more than 20 years) than any other provider in Eastern Washington/Northern Idaho. And both Dr. Aldred and Dr. Greeley are board certified neurologists. Their understanding of facial nerves and muscles gives them 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.
