BOTOX Cosmetic is an FDA-approved injectable designed to give you a refreshed appearance by diminishing wrinkles caused by the formation of facial lines.
BOTOX® works by reducing underlying muscle activity which may cause moderate to severe frown lines. It is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that temporarily smooths moderate to severe frown lines. This can include between the brows, lines around the eyes, and forehead in people from 18 to 65 years of age. You can expect facial lines to soften after using Botox.
During treatment, doses of Botox Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles responsible for frown lines between the brows. By blocking the release of a chemical that causes these muscles to contract, the solution enables them to relax. These effects are very localized and, when administered by an experienced physician, do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression.
No! Discomfort is very minimal with Botox. There is no anesthesia is required, although your doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting.
Your doctor will administer several tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. You can expect to be in and out of the physician's office with no downtime. You may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows within days. Improvement may continue for as long as a month. Results may vary.
