Q. HOW DOES BOTOX® WORK?
Botox® is an FDA approved treatment that weakens the muscles where the injections are administered. This non surgical procedure is injected in a controlled way so that the injected muscles contract, making the wrinkles and lines on your face relax, giving you a younger and fresher look. Botox® blocks your nerve signals from reaching our facial muscles, thereby preventing your muscles from contracting. This in turn halts wrinkles, fine lines and crow’s feet from appearing on your face.

Q. HOW LONG WILL MY BOTOX® TREATMENT LAST?

Q. ARE THERE ANY PRECAUTIONS I SHOULD TAKE BEFORE AND AFTER MY BOTOX® TREATMENT?

Q. WILL THE BOTOX® TREATMENT HURT?
