What is BOTOX Cosmetic?
Botox has been used therapeutically for more than 17 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. It is approved in more than 75 countries and remains the most-studied botulinum toxin and one of the most widely researched medicines in the world.
What causes frown lines between the brows?
The lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. When powerful muscles between the brows contract, they draw the brows together, causing the skin to fold or furrow. Because frown lines are dynamic lines caused by over active muscles, they can usually be treated with tiny injections of BOTOX Cosmetic.
Static lines, on the other hand, are lines that are visible even when the muscles are at rest. Theses lines are usually treated with a filler.
How does BOTOX Cosmetic work?
During treatment, very low 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, BOTOX Cosmetic enable them to relax.
The effects are very localized and, when administered by an experienced physician, do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression. BOTOX Cosmetic is the only product of its kind that has been approved for use in this area.
What is treatment like?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a quick and minimally invasive procedure consisting of a few tiny injections. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, and there is no downtime afterwards. Discomfort is minimal and brief.
