BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injection used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet in people 18 to 65 years of age. This is a quick procedure that requires no downtime or recovery, ofter referred to as a “lunch hour procedure”.
With a few injections, BOTOX® blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in your face, reducing their movement.This decreased muscle activity lessens the appearing of frown lines and crows feet.Years of squinting and frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease.As we age, skin becomes less elastic and those frown lines sometimes remain even when your muscles are not contracting.Properly administered, BOTOX gives real and noticeable results and you still look like yourself.You can still frown or look surprised but with less wrinkles and creasing.
