What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a natural purified protein that relaxes the muscles that cause wrinkles, creating a smoother and improved appearance.
What does BOTOX® Cosmetic do?
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections relax the muscles that create wrinkles, thereby lessening the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
The muscles of facial expression will typically cause overlying skin to wrinkle in an accordion-like fashion. Botox® eliminates these facial wrinkles, which occur with habitual overuse of specific muscles. It prevents the muscle from contracting, so the skin creases will gradually decrease in depth and severity.
A small amount of Botox® is injected right into the muscles that are responsible for producing wrinkles. Botox® effectively inactivates these muscles, thereby causing lines to disappear or diminish dramatically.
