Botox® can also be used to treat the lines around the lips, to elevate the corners of the mouth, to reduce the pebbly look on the chin, to soften the lines on the neck, and other areas on the face. Botox® works by relaxing the muscles that cause facial expression thereby eliminating the wrinkles. It entails a series of injections with a very small needle. It is a quick procedure with virtually no side effects and the duration of effect is 3-4 months. Botox® has a very high patient satisfaction rate and has been safely used in millions of patients.
