BOTOX

What is Botox?

 

Botox is a quick, easy, and effective way to reduce signs of aging and help transform your face into looking more youthful. Botox (the commercial name) or Botulinum A is a naturally occurring safe toxin produced by bacteria and is grown in specialized labs.

 

How Does Botox Work?

 

Botox when injected into the muscle block certain types of nerve receptors that normally cause the muscle to stiffen, instead the injection relaxes these muscles and the wrinkles to disappear. Botox can be used for many applications in many problem areas on and around the face. Botox can also be used for a few other problem areas on the body its self.
