What is BOTOX?
Botox is a safe, quick, and comfortable cosmetic procedure that obstructs muscle construction temporarily beneath the skin to provide a smooth look by minimizing or eliminating wrinkles. Our treatments are immediate and take only ten minutes before you can continue with your daily routine as usual.
Botox is injected into the neck or face skin, giving you a plumper, and younger appearance, and it treats aging concerns like volume loss, wrinkles, and sagging of skin. Your untreated muscles will normally work, maintaining natural expressions.
The results are visible instantly and last typically for three to four months. This treatment is more precise than surgery and provides a more natural solution to all skin aging problems.
The Botox treament does not need any special preparation for injection. No considerable amount of recovery time is required after a procedure, so you can return to your routine quickly after the procedure.
Wrinkles and fine lines are the results of the following factors such as:
- Free radicals from the environments and the sun
- Collagen loss
- Muscle contractions due to frowning, laughing, raising eyebrows, squinting, etc.

Within 24 to 48 hours, you may start noticing the smoothing of lines, and this can last up to four months. The treatment works effectively for moderate to critical frown lines.
