WHAT IS BOTULINUM TOXIN?
Botulinum Toxin is a wrinkle relaxing treatment which can dramatically soften facial expression lines, frown lines and crows feet in both men and women without surgery, scars or recovery time. It is a natural purified protein that relaxes wrinkle-causing muscles and helps create a smooth, rejuvenated appearance.
HOW DOES BOTULINUM TOXIN WORK?
Botulinum Toxin is injected into the muscles that cause lines between your brows, on your forehead or around the eyes to form to block the nerve impulse from reaching these muscles so they can relax. This relaxation enables the frown lines to simply smooth away.
