Botox function is to relax our facial muscles that cause those dreaded lines. We also use this muscle relaxation as a way to facial sculpt and enhance our natural beauty, by creating a refreshed younger appearance.
In our clinic we believe less is more.
We aim to soften and give a natural result without causing a frozen face or my favourite the wind tunnel look.
Botox is used not just for wrinkle softening, it can be used as a preventer.
We can use it also for excessive sweating conditions called hyperhydrosis, especially under the arms and palms of hand.
Treatment cost $1500 for both under arms with fantastic results lasting between 9-12 months.
