Botox® is a protein extracted and purified from Botulinum Toxin Type A.  When Botox® is injected, the connection between the nerves and muscles are blocked, leading to muscle relaxation and results in the disappearance of fine line/wrinkles caused by over contraction of muscles.

What is Botox® used for?

  • Wrinkles: expression lines
  • Uplifting and tightening of the skin
  • Facial slimming (masticatory muscles)
  • Calf contouring (muscular type)
  • Sweating suppression


How does Botox® work?

The brain will send out messages to the muscles in accordance with different emotions, offering commands to perform different facial expressions. Facial muscles contract and create expressions after receiving neuro-transmitted messages from the brain and expression lines will be formed. Long-term contraction of such muscles may cause the appearance of skin folds and finally the formation of wrinkles.

As BOTOX® is a type of neurotransmitter antagonist, when Botox® is injected, the connection between the nerves and muscles is blocked. Muscles that lead to expression lines will be relaxed and our skin will regain the state of smoothness, reaching the effect of wrinkle improvement.
