BOTOX® Cosmetic www.botoxcosmetic.com
The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, is a non-surgical procedure that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that smoothes moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. Both BOTOX® is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
One 10-minute treatment-a few tiny injections-and within days there's a noticeable improvement in those persistent lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months. It has been reported in the clinical literature that Dysport® may have a faster onset of action and may last longer. It may also have a ‘spreading’ effect which might be useful in some treatment areas (e.g., the neck).
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by Clostridium botulinum bacteria, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
What is a BOTOX® Treatment like?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple and safe procedure. Using a tiny micro-needle, a very small amount of the toxin is injected, very precisely, into several locations on the face. No sedation or local anesthetic is required, and you can resume normal activities immediately. You can even have it done on your lunch break!
