How does it work?
As we get older, it’s natural for wrinkles, brow furrows and forehead lines to appear. This can often be due to weakened collagen in the skin because of too much sun exposure ,natural gravity or because of excess facial movement and genetic pre-disposition.
It can be used to treat facial lines caused by the action of these muscles on the skin through wrinkle injections. It reversibly relaxes facial muscles to smooth those unwanted wrinkles and stop deeper lines forming.
