As we age, it becomes more difficult for our skin to rejuvenate, and it begins to reflect a lifetime of being exposed to the elements and our diet and lifestyle choices. Wrinkle correction is a process that softens or eliminates facial lines without going through any surgical procedures. The treatment is done using Botulinum Toxin which has been used in medicine for many applications. When a small amount of botulinum toxin is injected into the muscle, its activity is limited so that the skin no longer wrinkles.
