Botulinum


Botulinum is a type of purified protein which has been approved by US FDA and is used to relax the muscles, which cause wrinkles on skin or body parts. Botulinium is helpful in relaxing dynamic face wrinkles, for e.g., frown lines on forehead or crows feet around eyes.

When we start a Botulinum procedure on a patient, we see visible results after at least 7 days of service. This process can remove squint and frown lines on face, which can make one appear more stressed, tired and older looking than they actually are.
