Botox For Wrinkles Reduction
Botox is a protein which is available in powdered form in small bottles. It’s diluted with water to make liquid form which when injected into the muscles using microneedles relaxes them. Thus, post botox muscle relaxation, overlying skin is not thrown into folds giving rise to wrinkle free skin.

When botox is injected into these muscles they relax, thereby relaxing the overlying skin above, giving it an ironed out smooth appearance.
