targeted muscles eg. marionette lines, 'number 11' frown lines, crows feet, smokers' lines, platysmal bands in the neck, dimply
chin, down turned mouth corners etc.
Therapeutic treatments include hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) , migraines,
muscle spasticity, TMJ pain, neck and back pain/spasms, blepharospasm(eye twitching)
It takes 3 to 10 days to
start showing an effect and results last 3 to 4 months. Over time with upkeep of treatments muscles start to atrophy (like
any muscle that is not working!) and you will likely need less product with greater time span (eg 6 monthly).
