What is Botox?

Botox is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment used to relax muscles and temporarily smooth out wrinkles and lines from the forehead, between the eyebrows and around the eyes (crow’s feet).

Botox weakens certain muscles to a variable degree (as selected by patient) by blocking certain nerves that cause wrinkles. The end result of Botox injections is smooth skin while keeping the ability to express your facial feelings and the look of your eyes.
