What is BOTOX
Botox is one of the most well-known injections used in treating wrinkles. It can help diminish (or even eradicate) the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by injecting botulinum toxin into the facial muscles.
Botox is FDA-approved and an excellent alternative to more invasive plastic surgery options. In addition, many patients find botulinum toxin particularly useful in treating a small targeted area (such as severe frown lines). Botox typically takes 12 days to fully kick in.
