Botox treatment brings great effect when removing wrinkles around the areas of developed muscles (square chin, calves, thigh, trapezius muscle) with injecting a substance called botulinum. Botulinum temporarily paralyzes the movement of muscle thus letting us stretch the wrinkles, and also giving time to minimize developed muscles on the chin or the calves. It can also be effective for excessive sweating.
