Crows’ feet, frown lines, and other deeps lines or wrinkles on the face are an issue for many as they age.

What Exactly Does Botox Do?
Botox is an injectable treatment that targets the underlying causes of deep lines, typically the ones between the brows. The treatment is non-surgical and doesn’t require any downtime, so you can get right back to your daily life immediately after treatment. It helps treat the underlying cause of those deep lines and wrinkles by allowing the muscles beneath to become relaxed.
Squinting and frowning, over time, can cause these deep lines and wrinkles to form. They are a common part of the aging process. But with this treatment that only takes about 10 minutes, those stubborn lines can be diminished for up to 4 months. This is because the injections will reduce muscle activity for a period of time, causing the skin to be visibly smoother.
Unlike other treatments, this one doesn’t only target the surface of the skin and that makes the results that much more amazing.
