With time and aging, human skin usually loses its radiance and its complexion. Inspite of taking care of it, we cannot avoid the appearance of wrinkles around the face.
Wrinkles appear as a result of regular muscular contractions of expression, usually expression lines such as lion's wrinkles between the two eyes, wrinkles of the crows’ feet at the corner of the eyes, and wrinkles of the forehead.
Even if we use creams for anti-aging, the traces of wrinkles and aging still persist. The injectable solution for anti-wrinkles is BOTOX.

Botox is the most effective solution for people who have facial wrinkles. Botulinum or botox is one of the solutions against aging skin and wrinkles.

In aesthetics, Botox is used to prevent wrinkles or avoid their appearance. Successive facial muscle contraction is the main factor in the appearance of forehead wrinkles and crows’ feet wrinkles.
Which areas of the face can be treated?
The sentimental muscular contractions are the main source of appearance of the expression lines especially the wrinkles of the make and the wrinkles of the crows’ feet.
