As we age, it is inevitable that our facial skin begins to wrinkle and sag. This happens due multiple factors, with abnormal facial muscle dynamics, playing a major role in creating negative facial lines and thus the illusion of premature facial aging.
Thankfully, there is BOTOX® .
BOTOX® is a Neurotoxin witch works in the Nerve-Muscle interface. The treatment works by blocking signals from the nerve to the muscle in a harmless way. The muscle movement returns to normal after a few months.
After the procedure, fine lines around your eyes will begin to relax, while frown and/or smile lines will appear less defined. Even the deepest stress lines between your eyebrows or concentration grooves in your forehead can be treated effectively.

- ask a few questions about your medical history to exclude contraindications
