What it is
BOTOX® is one of the most popular treatments in the medical aesthetics industry. BOTOX® is not only affordable, but there is no downtime.

It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect, and will last for four to six months or longer depending on the procedure.
What results can you expect from our anti-wrinkles treatments? Fine lines and wrinkles will smooth out and even diminish completely, leaving your skin taut and youthful in appearance. Our anti-wrinkle treatments are recommended to target certain conditions, such as crow’s feet and frown lines, and are recommended also as a preventative measure to keep deep wrinkles from forming as we age.
How it Works
BOTOX® is a neuromodulator made from a purified form of botulinum toxin A, meaning there’s no botulism risk when used properly. BOTOX® temporarily relaxes specific muscles by blocking nerve impulses resulting in wrinkles and lines to diminish and even disappear.
BOTOX® is especially effective on wrinkles that haven’t quite set or only appear when you’re expressing, such as when you frown. If the muscle has a reduced ability to move and contract, you won’t form a wrinkle. Areas that can be treated include forehead lines, frown lines, crows feet or smile lines, bunny lines around the nose, chin dimpling and neck bands. Botox can also be used for facial slimming, excessive sweating of the hands and armpits and for migraine prevention.
