BOTULINUM A (BTX) TOXIN TREATMENT
Wrinkles are formed due to continuous muscle contractions during facial expressions over a long period of time. Botulinum toxin A or BTX is a purified protein material and works by blocking the overactive nerve impulses which result in extreme muscle contractions, thus reducing the wrinkles. BTX treatment for anti-aging is US FDA approved for its efficacy and safety.
According to requirement, a measured amount of BTX is injected into the muscle responsible for creating the wrinkle. Once BTX is injected, the muscle relaxes and the wrinkle softens while the surrounding muscles which are untreated contract in the normal fashion.
