So the product works by blocking impulses that cause face muscles to contract.
It thereby allows facial muscles to relax which, in turn, can smooth out and even prevent wrinkling and creates. Asa result, Many people think of it as a sort of chemical facelift.
With impacts that last up to four months per injection, Botox is highly effective in the battle against:
-General facial wrinkling
-Fine lines around the mouth
-Creases near the chin
