Botox®

Botox® is a purified toxin produced by the bacterium clostridium Botulinum. Extremely small doses of Botox® are injected directly into a specific muscle, paralyzing the action of that muscle only. Following these injections, the lines of facial expression are reduced and the overlying skin appears smooth and unwrinkled.

Ideal areas for Botox® treatments are frown lines between the eyebrows, crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, wrinkles around the mouth and neck. Improvements in the treated areas are visible after three to four days. The results usually last for three to five months and a repeat treatment is necessary to regain the results.
