INDICATIONS FOR BOTOX®
Aging changes around the eyes specifically crows feet and frown lines, occasionally for neck bands.
The technique involves injection of Botulina Type A Toxin (BOTOX®) into the over active muscles causing a temporary paralysis minimizing the active lines. The most common areas treated by Botox® are the forehead and crow's feet and the improvement lasts 3-6 months. Patient satisfaction is high and complications are practically non-existent!
