Smile, laugh, frown, and make all the facial expressions you want and stop worrying about the wrinkles! Botox is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent derived from the bacterium. Clostridium Botulinum. We have utilized Botox for years as a cosmetic treatment to correct visible signs of stress and aging. Botox is injected into specific muscles that contract and cause the lines and wrinkles on the face. This treatment is effective and safe so you can resume your regular activities right after the treatment. The result usually takes up to 10 days to notice.
