Mayo Clinic's approach

  • Experience. Improperly placed botulinum toxin injections can cause serious complications, so it helps to choose doctors with experience. Mayo Clinic doctors perform thousands of botulinum toxin injections each year.
  • Time for you. Your Mayo Clinic specialist will take time to discuss options and answer your questions about botulinum toxin injections.
  • Efficient care. At Mayo Clinic your appointments are coordinated, so you usually can complete your treatment in one to three days, depending on your situation.
