How does Botox work?​

Botox is pure protein injected to correct facial imperfections. It prevents wrinkles from appearing by blocking impulses from the nerve to the tiny facial muscles that are related to expression lines.

Benefits:

  • Helps the muscles to relax. Can help people with office syndrome. Can be injected at many parts of the body.
