Basics About Botox
Botox is a medication that can relax the muscles of facial expression. It is used primarily for reducing the appearance of the wrinkles caused by years of smiling, laughing, and frowning. The areas that respond the best to Botox are the smile lines around the eyes (Crow’s feet) and the frown lines between the eyebrows (Glabellar lines).
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
A BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is a simple, nonsurgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between your brows that develop over time. One 10-minute treatment — a few tiny injections — relaxes the muscles that cause those lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to 4 months. The results are dramatic and apparent within days. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of the men and women surveyed rated the improvement in their brow lines as moderate to better. For many, BOTOX® Cosmetic “erases” these lines. Unlike surgery, BOTOX® Cosmetic is fast, simple, and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. Most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment. Within days, they report looking more natural and relaxed. With BOTOX® Cosmetic, they’ll know you’ve done something, they just won’t know what.
