What is Botox?
Botox is a neurotoxin that temporarily relaxes dynamic wrinkles for a refreshed, healthy appearance.
How does Botox work?
Botox works by temporarily blocking the signal between the nerve and the muscle. The muscle is no longer able to contract thus relaxing and softening the overlying wrinkles. Studies show that when Botox treatment is done on a regular basis, the muscles learn not to contract, and less Botox is needed to achieve the same results. Moreover, regular Botox treatments early in wrinkle formation can prevent more severe lines and wrinkles.
Botox is proven to improve dynamic wrinkles and creases. Within a week of injection, improvements become obvious and continue to improve up to a month. However, the success of your Botox treatment depends upon the skills and expertise of the injector. Dr. Zeena has the skills, experience and artistic eye to provide you with the desired refreshed results you seek.
The following areas can benefit from Botox treatment:

Botox when placed properly creates a refreshed and rested appearance. When Botox treatments are combined with strategically placed dermal fillers the result is a liquid facelift!
