What are BOTOX® injections?
Botox® is a neuromodulator approved by Health Canada for cosmetic and medical treatments. Neuromodulators temporarily halt the movement of muscles in which it is injected into, causing the surrounding area of skin to relax and stop ‘crinkling’ over itself. The crinkling or folding movement of skin is one of the main causes of fine line and wrinkle formation. These lines and wrinkles can make you look and feel older than you are.
