What is a deep-plane Botox?

Botox is an FDA-approved treatment primarily used to reduce facial wrinkles and fine lines. It works by temporarily paralyzing the small muscles beneath the skin, preventing them from contracting, which in turn smooths out wrinkles and prevents the formation of new ones. Botox is commonly used on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes and nose. Apart from cosmetic uses, Botox is also effective for treating medical conditions like excessive sweating, migraine headaches, and TMJ disorders.

Who is a good candidate for a botox?

Temporary Side Effects

These can occur if Botox migrates from the injection site, but are generally mild.
