What is botox?

It is a purified natural protein used to relax and decrease muscle strength to improve and beautify in the needed areas. It is performed by injecting a very thin needle into the muscle using a very low dose of botulinum toxin. It is eliminated by the kidneys and does not accumulate for many years.

Where will it be applied?

A- The most common areas are fine lines on our face, especially between the eyebrows, the forehead and around the eyes –“crow’s feet”-, combating expression or dynamic wrinkles on our face.

B- Botox is also used to treat bruxism caused by hypertrophy and hypertonia of the masseter muscles, causing pain and alteration in facial morphology.

C- We can also treat hyperhidrosis in the armpits, palms of the hands and feet or at the facial-capillary level, reducing or eliminating excess sweating.

Where to apply: face, chin, neck, masseters (bruxism).
