Botox® is the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin and is a popular non-surgical injection that temporarily reduces or eliminates facial lines, forehead creases, and crow’s feet near the eyes in men and women. It relaxes targeted muscles by blocking nerve impulses that trigger wrinkle-causing muscle contractions.
The procedure involves a few tiny injections of purified protein and it is minimally invasive, simple and quick.
Botox® cosmetic treatment usually results in a smoother and improved appearance that is noticeable in 24 to 48 hours. The effects usually last up to four months.
