As one of the most popular products in the aesthetic enhancement industry over the last 20 years, Botox® is one of the most effective methods for treating wrinkles and expression lines. Botox® injections act as a temporary nerve blocker to weaken the contraction of muscles and smooth away fine lines & wrinkles.
Botox® is an injectable neuromodulator solution, that works by causing temporary paralysis to the muscles in the face. By temporarily paralyzing these muscles that cause these expression lines, the skin is allowed to flatten out. And with time, and good skin care habits, the facial folds will fade and the expression wrinkles you target will disappear.
