What is 



Microtox is the newest application for Botox® and other Neurotoxins. Very small amounts of dilute botulinum toxin are injected into the dermis to reduce redness, oiliness, smooth fine lines and minimize pores

How does it work?

It has become clear over the last 20 years that regular use of Neurotoxins also improves the general appearance of skin. Microtox injections do not affect the muscles of facial expression.

Microtox injections allow us to harness these transformative powers of botulinum toxin. In these treatments, dilute micro doses of botulinum toxin are injected into the dermis where it directly affects cell function.
