This treatment is a revolutionary wrinkle reduction procedure. It can reduce or eliminate wrinkles in the face including forehead lines, frown lines between the eyebrows and crows feet around the eyes, smokers lines, dimpled chin, bunny lines, gummy smile and platysmal bands.
It is not surgery. There is no chance of scarring. It is a safe and effective treatment.
Treatment is administered by injection therapy. It acts by blocking the nervous impulses directed towards all the muscles in which it is injected. This prevents muscles from contracting, leading to a temporary and gradual reversible paralysis.
