This product is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines on a forehead, between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
How does Botox Cosmetic work?
BOTOX Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. A doctor dermatologist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. In a couple of days you will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows and/or on the forehead.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the bad environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes also contract and cause crow’s feet.
Botox injections produce temporary facial rejuvenation results by blocking the muscle contractions that create wrinkles and treat some other inconvenient body’s conditions. It includes: treatment of excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) of armpits or palms or feet, horizontal forehead wrinkles, glabellas wrinkles (the perpendicular worry lines between the eyebrows), crow’s feet, wrinkles on the nose «rabbit’s wrinkles», lifting of the corners of the mouth. The number of units for each area is different and determined by the doctor during an individual consultation
