ABOUT BOTULINIUM TOXINE
Botulinum toxin, known as "Botox" is the most popular and effective procedure for smoothing wrinkles and facial rejuvenation worldwide. The effect is temporary, does not require recovery time and the procedure is not complicated as other facial aesthetic treatments. Administrating a small amount of Botox into the muscle in order to "block" the nerve signals that control contractions, results in smoothed wrinkles for the next few months. It is used mainly to smooth wrinkles around the eyes, horizontal forehead and glabella. After the injection the botulinum toxin "relaxes" the muscle under the skin and wrinkles are reduced. It is clinically proven that this procedure is safe and effectiveif it is placed by a certified doctor who strictly followed the protocol. The effect occurs gradually over 2-3 days up to two weeks after the injection while achieving remarkably smooth skin and the result is usually retains about 4-6 months.
