What is Botox?
Short for Botulinum Toxin, BOTOX is a purified protein which is able to block overactive nerve impulses that trigger excessive muscle contractions. When injected into facial muscles, BOTOX helps to reduce all kinds of facial lines, including wrinkles. Commonly treated areas are the crow’s feet, forehead furrows, frown lines and skin bands on the neck. Our affiliated clinic also offers Botox for the treatment of Hyperhidrosis.
1. BOTOX is injected into facial muscles of desired areas of the face. Typically, 1-3 injections are given per muscle.
2.The injected muscles will begin to relax, gradually smoothening the overlying skin.
