The same you; a younger face
What is Botox?
Botox is a prescription injectable that is backed by 20 years of research and smiling faces. It is synthetic, meaning it is not derived from natural materials. Trained consultants inject the liquid into your problem areas and massage the area to ensure it rests in the right place.
Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause the skin to furrow and fold, gradually forming facial lines.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.
