• Botulinum toxin treatment: popularly known as Botox, is one of the most demanded non-surgical cosmetic treatment all around the world. Botox is a neurotoxin that works by paralyzing the muscles. It is extensively used for treating the lines and wrinkles of the upper face. Tiny quantities of Botox are injected into the target areas where it stops the transmission of chemical signals from the nerve endings to the muscles. This action stops the activity of the muscles and it stops contracting. As the muscle relaxes, the surface skin become smooth and wrinkle free. It is commonly used for treating frown lines on the forehead and between the brows and crow’s feet(the small lines that appear around the corners of the eyes during squinting). Botox Oxford UK is offered by large number of cosmetic clinics yet only few perform a natural and subtle botox job. For more information visit http://www.cosmedocs.com/locations/oxford-clinic.php
