WHAT IS BOTOX® ?
Botox® provides a safe and effective treatment for men and women that does not require surgery and is used to improve the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Botox® injections are quick, safe, and simple. Botox is injected in small amounts under the skin. This causes wrinkles to fade and lines to become smoothed resulting in a younger you with head-turning results.

We also use BOTOX® to treat the problem of excessive sweating, medically known as Hyperhidrosis. It is injected into the armpits to stop the production of sweat.
DOES BOTOX® TAKE LONG A LONG TIME TO WORK?
No, the procedure is complete over a few minutes with the patient able to return back to normal activities. They are not painful and results can be started to notice as soon as day 2-3. Follow up reviews are done at 2 weeks to achieve great results.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED BOTOX®?
It is dependent upon various environmental factors such as drinking alcohol, smoking excessive sun exposure, exercise, and metabolic factors.
BOTOX® is produced from a toxin that is derived from the bacterium Clostridium Botulinum. It is known as type A. It is injected in small amounts under the skin. It then targets muscles and temporarily restricts their movement. This allows the overlying skin to repair resulting in a smooth – young wrinkle free appearance.
