B0t0x and Xe0min are commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of dynamic fine line and wrinkles.  Dynamic lines are the wrinkles formed when you animate.  For example, you will see these lines when you scowl or raise your eye brows or smile. Dr. Mai will analyze and give the necessary injections to give you a refreshed and natural look.  Men tend to form “etched lines” sooner than women.  These “etched lines” are seen when your face is at rest.

How do Neurotoxins work?

Neurotoxins work by relaxing the muscle used to make expressions that form wrinkles between the brow, the forehead and around the eyes.
