Botulinum toxins such as BOTOX® Cosmetic offer a quick, simple, non-surgical treatment for facial wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines between the brows, and crows’ feet that appear around the outer corners of the eye.
The procedure requires no downtime and no recovery. Results become apparent within 24 to 48 hours and can last for up to four months. With a few tiny injections, Botox blocks the nerve impulses to the targeted muscles. This relaxes the muscles and allows the overlying skin to flatten, smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.
One 10 minute treatment can achieve significant results.
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and is used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (galbellar lines) for a short period of time.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is contraindicated in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site(s) and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any botulinum toxin preparation or to any of the components in the formulation.
Be sure to tell your doctor about all the medicines that you take, including recent injection of any other botulinum toxin products, antibiotics, muscle relaxants, allergy or cold medicine, or medicinal sleep aids.
