HOW BOTOX® WORKS
South Surrey BOTOX® must be administered by a trained healthcare professional, such as South Surrey’s injectable specialist Dr Miral Hassan When safely and properly injected into the muscles of the face, it works by temporarily hindering nerve impulses to these muscles and thereby limiting their activity. By relaxing the underlying muscles, the overlying skin is given a smoother appearance.
