More about Botox:

Botulinum toxin, shortly referred to as Botox is one of the most popular cosmetic procedure to fight skin issues that come with ageing. This can also be administered prior to any visible skin alterations by relaxing the facial muscles. Here are some areas where Botox can be used:

  • Dents in the chin
  • Brow lift
  • Excessive sweating
  • Lines between the eyebrows

Botox helps in reducing wrinkles on the mentioned facial areas leaving a fresh and youthful looking skin for you. It is a quick fix to take care of fine lines that become obvious with age. It is not a time consuming procedure and there is certainly nothing to be anxious about while you’re going for Botox. It is just slightly uncomfortable – like a sting – when the needle parches your skin.

  • Asymmetric face
  • Infection
