Botox® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, worry lines, crow’s feet, neck bands and laugh lines. These are called “dynamic wrinkles” as they occur when the muscles under the skin contract when we frown, smile and laugh.
Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. The 11s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.
Botox® works by temporarily blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This weakens and reduces muscle activity that causes the persistent lines to form and as a result, the wrinkles diminish.
Botox® treatment can also be used for excessive underarm perspiration (Hyperhydrosis) to reduce underarm moisture for up to a full year.
Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.
BOTOX® is the world’s most popular cosmetic procedure, used to alleviate fine lines and wrinkles that are indicative of aging. Now, the FDA has approved Xeomin—an injectable that uses the same active ingredient as Botox for a face that’s younger, smoother, and more aesthetically pleasing. Xeomin’s results can last as long as six months and some doctors and patients prefer it over Botox injections.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, non-surgical, treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The beauty of a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is that it's a simple, 10-minute, non-surgical process. A few tiny injections, and within days there can be a noticeable improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between the brows that can last up to 4 months. And there’s no recovery time. You can even do it on your lunch break.
