This non-surgical treatment is quick, minimally invasive, and requires little to no downtime, making it a popular choice for individuals seeking effective anti-aging solutions.

how botox cosmetic works

How BOTOX® Works

Facial lines can develop for a variety of reasons, not just because of cellular changes, decreased collagen, or sun and environmental damage.

Repeated muscular contractions from raising the eyebrows, squinting, or frowning cause the skin to wrinkle and fold, which over time causes facial lines to appear.

BOTOX® targets the underlying cause by temporarily reducing muscle activity below the surface.

Adults who undergo this procedure will see an improvement in their forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and moderate to severe frown lines.
