What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
This injectable treatment for wrinkles has been approved for more than 17 years to treat 20 different conditions in more than 75 countries. It’s the same formulation that was approved in 2002 for the temporary treatment of “frown lines” by relaxing the dominant frown muscles, letting your face relax.
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.
Your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
