How does Botox work?

When a small dose of Botox is injected into specific muscles (by a trained expert in dermatology), their excessive contraction is prevented. This also prevents the formation of new wrinkles and smooths the old ones. The typical patient for this procedure is between 30 and 70 years of age.

During the treatment, botox is injected in very small doses, blocking the facial mimicry muscles, thus preventing the formation of wrinkles.
