Botulinum toxin is the most popular minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment. Botulinum toxin treatment uses botulinum toxin, a kind of bacteria that is injected into the patient’s face that freezes the muscles. Repeated muscle contractions such as frowning and squinting form lines known as dynamic wrinkles. Botulinum toxin works by relaxing these muscles. It gives your face a relaxed appearance. The procedure is simple and quick, taking only minutes to perform so that you can have it done on your lunch hour.
