BOTOX Cosmetic is a perscription medication that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows in people 18 to 65 years of age. Years of squinting, concentrating or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes, your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines remain - even when your muscles are not contracting. With BOTOX Cosmetic, you can get real, noticeable results and still look like yourself. You can still frown or look surprised, but without the wrinkles and creases between the brows.
No Surgery. No Recovery Time.
BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is a quick, 10 minute, procedure. With a few tiny injections, BOTOX Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in your forehead, reducing their movement. This decreased muscle activity helps lessen the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.
You will start seeing results within 24 to 48 hours. In clinical trials, a majority of people saw significant improvement at 7 days, with results continueing to improve for up to a month. The results have been proven to last up to 4 months.
