What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is a renowned cosmetic treatment that addresses signs of aging in the skin, particularly fine lines and crow's feet. Our skin loses volume as we age, causing facial muscles to contract more visibly at the surface, accentuating wrinkles. BOTOX® works by reducing the activity of these specific muscles, smoothing out the visible lines. It is a highly purified form of botulinum toxin protein, known for its ability to temporarily improve the skin's appearance by softening age-related wrinkles and lines.
