Botox is a popular non-surgical cosmetic treatment that utilizes a purified form of botulinum toxin to temporarily relax targeted muscles in the face. By doing so, it smooths out wrinkles and fine lines, particularly those caused by repetitive facial expressions.
Botox injections can effectively reduce the appearance of crow's feet, frown lines, and forehead wrinkles, resulting in a more refreshed and youthful facial appearance.
