The application of Botulinum Toxin is one of the most common treatments used to relieve the visible signs of wrinkles and expression lines. Differing from wrinkles caused by sun exposure, expression lines in the face have their origin in muscular contraction, a voluntary or involuntary reflex of the way we convey feelings.

This anti-aging treatment is performed through small injections in the skin muscles with a fine needle. When injected in the muscles, it blocks the nerve activity, smoothing the appearance of hyper-functional lines.

The procedure takes around 20 minutes and no anesthesia is needed.
