The Reduction of
Fine Lines & Wrinkles

Wrinkle reduction is a popular facial aesthetic treatment used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This treatment involves injecting botulinum toxin into the muscles to relax them and stop forming more or deeper lines.

Botulinum toxin wears off, so you can stop treatment if you wish.
