What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® acts as a by temporarily reducing the activity of muscles that cause overlying skin to contract and over time, form wrinkles. As the muscle relaxes, the wrinkles are smoothed away. Your face will still be capable of expression and you will still look like you – just smoother!
How does BOTOX® work?
The more frequently our facial muscles are used, the more likely that a furrow or frown line will form. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by reducing the activity in these muscles to give a more relaxed and carefree appearance. Quite often these lines can be completely erased with regular use of BOTOX®. Best of all, treatment with BOTOX® is simple and can be completed in as little as 10 minutes. There is no recovery time, and you can get back to your day with little interruption.
What facial areas can be treated with BOTOX®?
Between the brows (deeper furrows and frown lines)
Forehead (horizontal expression lines)
Eye area (crows feet and squint lines)
Brow area to give a natural, lifted look
BOTOX® is also used to control Hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and is FDA approved for the treatment of the underarm area.
