BOTOX – Anti-Aging Wrinkle Prevention – Chicago

BOTOXDid you know that every subtle movement the face makes, whether it be a frown or a furrowing of the eyebrows, contributes to the formation of wrinkles? Repeated facial movements cause the face to crease and create lines. As the skin ages, these lines become permanently etched on our face.BOTOX is an anti-aging injection that can effectively reduce signs of aging.

The way BOTOX injections prevent wrinkles is by temporarily paralyzing the underlying muscles from making the movements that create wrinkles or lines. The injections are made of a botulinum toxin, and though it may sound threatening, it is FDA-approved and formulated to be safe for cosmetic use.
