WHAT IS BOTOX®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinumbacterium. It is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX®Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines.
HOW DOES BOTOX® WORK?
Those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows form over time as the result of muscle activity. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles between your brows. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.
The treatment is usually done in about 10 minutes and no recovery time is needed.
HOW QUICKLY WILL I SEE RESULTS?
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 a month, and results can last for up to 4 months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women rated the improvement in their appearance as moderate to better 1 month after treatment. Results may vary.
