Botulinum Toxin injections help relax facial muscles that cause wrinkles. So, when you smile, your skin won’t fold around your mouth.

Since Botox functions by paralyzing facial muscles temporarily, you'll notice optimal results within 5 to 7 days. Also, deep dynamic wrinkles will improve gradually, alongside early improvements shortly after treatment.
