what is a botox® treatment?
It’s a treatment that uses Botulinum Toxin to temporarily paralyze the muscles. By injecting a carefully diluted unit into the chosen area, it can treat excessive sweating, overactive bladder, migraine relief, frown lines, and many more issues. Botox® effects wear off after only five to seven days because of the natural metabolism of the body; therefore, more frequent treatments are advisable.
Another type of Botox® cosmetic injection is Inclinoplasty. In this treatment, a clear fluid is injected into the muscles underneath the eye to reduce bags, dark circles, and puffiness. This is ideal for people who have droopy eyelids or those who have lost their firmness. It also helps to reduce squinting and double vision.
