These fillers can be applied to the cheeks, lips, and around the mouth.
What is Botox?
The magic of Botox originates from a toxin named Botulinum that is extracted from bacteria. Regulated amounts of Botox can help correct wrinkles and fine lines and it has been safely used in the industry for decades. It functions by blocking signals to the muscles - thereby slowing or stopping wrinkles from developing.
