Botulinum Toxin injections (also known as Botox), are used for both cosmetic and medical reasons. Botulinum Toxin is a prescription only medicine, and is produced by a specific type of bacteria.

Anti-wrinkle injections contain a natural toxin called Botulinum, which prevents muscles from contracting. The effects will leave your skin looking smoother and fresher than ever before.
How do anti-wrinkle injections work?
When Botulinum Toxin is in injected, it blocks nerve signals to muscles. As a result, injected muscles can’t contract (tense up). These effects are not permanent, but can last for several months.
