Botox is an injectable treatment to help smooth wrinkles and creases. It is administered with a needle to the desired part of the face, such as the forehead or around the eyes. Botox enters the muscle, temporarily preventing contraction. This treatment helps soften fine lines and wrinkles by relaxing the area and reducing movement.
