How it works
Botox® is a neurotoxin that essentially “freezes” muscles, relaxes wrinkles and smoothes out the skin’s surface.
Botox® is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment. Sessions generally take 10 to 30 minutes and include a series of tiny injections to deliver Botox® to the site.
Minor bruising may occur. In reality the main side effect of Botox® is paralysis of targeted muscles. Essentially the side effect is the goal of the treatment which lasts approximately 4-6 months.
