A popular injection
Botulinum toxin cosmetic, also known as Botox, is a popular injection that temporarily diminishes or removes facial fine lines and wrinkles. The most typically treated locations are frown lines, forehead creases, and crow's feet near the eyes. Several other areas can be treated, including pronounced neckbands, chin dimpling, strong jaw muscles, lip lines, and a gummy smile. Botox is also an effective solution for excessive sweating in the armpits, scalp, palms and soles.
Botox is a bacteria-derived purified toxin that works by temporarily disrupting nerve signals to the muscles that contribute to wrinkle formation. The muscle cannot contract in the absence of a signal. As a result, facial wrinkles are reduced or prevented from forming in the first place. Kerolus Facial Plastic Surgery uses Botox and Dysport as the primary formulas for botulinum toxin.
Botox is the most extensively utilized and well-known anti-aging treatment for wrinkles.

Optimal candidates for Botox injectable are 18 or older, in good physical health, free of skin rashed or breakouts, and not pregnant.

Crow's feet, for example, typically necessitate two or three injections. Furrows across your brow may require five or more.
