Botox in Birmingham

by Dr Andrew Greenwood BDS 

Botox

I have  20 years experience of facial aesthetics and have performed 1000’s of Botox treatments during that time both as an injector and trainer. So you can rest assured you are in safe hands.

Not only do I use Botox for cosmetic use, I also treat medical conditions such as migraines, underarm sweating and teeth clenching.
