Acupuncture and Botox Poisoning

Treatment with Botox is popular now.  Botox is prepared from the Botulinum toxin.  Injections have the effect of  relaxing muscles that are in spasm.  It is used to relax muscles that are creating facial wrinkles.  Overuse can cause undesirable symptoms.  One common symptom I have treated is the inability to keep one’s eyes open.  Acupuncture is used to tonify the muscles that are not responding.  Acupuncture treatment helps to relieve symptoms in weeks instead of months.
