What areas can be treated with BOTOX ® Injections?

BOTOX ® wrinkle treatment injections can be used to treat dynamic wrinkles like crow's feet, worry lines between the eyebrows and laugh lines.

How does BOTOX ® Cosmetic Wrinkle Treatment work?

Dynamic facial Wrinkles result from over expression of the facial muscles. BOTOX ® injections are used to safely improve the appearance of crow's feet, worry lines and laugh lines. BOTOX ® injections work by blocking the nerve impulses and temporarily paralyzing the muscles responsible for wrinkles.

BOTOX ® Injections are gently injected into the particular facial muscle, with a micro-needle, in order to temporarily relax and smooth out your facial muscle, and to significantly improve of fine lines and superficial wrinkles in the area of your treatment. Patients report very little pain or discomfort associated with BOTOX ® injections due to the small size of the micro-needle.
