What is Botox?
Botulinum Toxin, or commonly known as Botox, a neurotoxin that temporarily paralyzes the injected muscle. With regular Botox treatments over a period of time, the muscle will atrophy from the lack of use, expression lines will become less obvious and you may require less botox overtime to maintain the same great results.

Nicely done botox and filler injections. The clinic is clean and cozy. Doctor is attentive and staffs are friendly too. I am pleased with the results.
My doctor takes his time to check on me and give good advise before the procedure. It makes me feel very comfortable doing the treatment with him. The whole session was very relaxing. There was only minimal pain and mild bruising. I did the botox on my jaw muscles for a slimmer look and the results are simply amazing.
Botox didn't help for my saggy skin. There is no lifting and made my face asymmetrical.
Absolutely loving the results from botox. I have receive so much compliments from friends and family that I am looking younger !
Do yourself a favour and treat yourself with botox if you are over 50. I am amazed by the results. Bye bye frown lines!
Did both restylane filler and the Botox. I wanted a natural look and I am to achieve that. I highly recommend it!
I have done botox over 8 times. I am age 45 and still keeping a youthful look without having to makeup!
