BOTOX® Cosmetic - One-of-a-Kind Treatment
BOTOX Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved prescription treatment for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in patients 18 to 65 yearsof age. Since FDA approval in 2002, over 2 million people have received BOTOX treatments.
How Lines and Wrinkles Can Form Between the Brows
Movement of brow muscles causes the skin to crease. Over time, the skin becomes less elastic. Repeated frowning creates lines and wrinkles between the brows (the clinical term is glabellar lines).
How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein that smoothes the muscles by blocking nerve impulses.
With a few tiny injections, BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the release of acetylcholine, the chemical that causes muscles to contract. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smoothes out, and the lines begin to fade.
Results with No Downtime
After the procedure, you can resume normal activity.
Results Seen in Days and Can Last Up to 4 Months
You’ll typically see improvement within days that may continue to improve during the first week after treatment.
Results that look Natural
With BOTOX® Cosmetic, you will not look “like you’ve had work done”. You can still frown, smile, or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
