What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface. Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time. BOTOX® acts as a muscle relaxer for the upper portion of the face to reduce wrinkles and unwanted frown lines. The average BOTOX® treatment remains in effect for approximately 13 weeks.
