What is BOTOX®?

BOTOX is an immensely popular cosmetic treatment, utilizing a purified form of the botulinum toxin type A protein produced by Clostridium botulinum bacteria. This protein has the remarkable ability to temporarily inhibit muscle activity, thus smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles in the treated area. Its unparalleled capacity to reduce the tell-tale signs of aging has seen BOTOX become a much sought-after non-surgical aesthetic treatment. It is commonly used to address frown lines, forehead creases, crow's feet, and other expression lines through the injection of small amounts of BOTOX into the appropriate muscle groups. The end result is a rejuvenated, more youthful appearance.

Unparalleled Precision of the BOTOX® Procedure
