What is Botox?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet between the brows. It’s the most popular non-surgical treatment for wrinkles in the United States.
Botox® is a neurotoxin made from Clostridium botuillumn. Which is found in the natural environment. When prepared for injectable use, the liquid (Botox®) transforms the skin by reducing unsightly wrinkles down to a smooth surface.
How is BOTOX® Cosmetic administered?
Botox® is injected into the muscles by a qualified physician or practitioner in order to block the nerve impulse from reaching the area where wrinkles are visible. As the muscle weakens, the skin relaxes. Therefore, the wrinkles in the skin gradually soften, often disappearing.

Botox® Cosmetic, medically known as Botulinum toxin, is used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Physicians and other practitioners also use it to treat excessive sweating, muscular disorders, migraines, and bladder/bowel disorders.
When injected, Botox® Cosmetic blocks nerve signals to your muscles which disables the muscle activity(contraction) that causes wrinkles. This eases certain muscular conditions, and improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the patient’s targeted areas. Botox® Cosmetic only affects the treated area.
Botox® Cosmetic is limited to where it is injected. It does not move to any other parts of the body. If it is injected in the facial area, it stays there. It does not have a systemic effect. Botox® Cosmetic is approved and safe for use and should only be administered by a licensed professional.
The average age for Botox® Cosmetic use is 30 years. However, when frown lines show longevity, it’s suggested to consider initial Botox treatments. In some people, lines start to show in their mid-twenties, and many others begin after age 30.
Botox® Cosmetic generally lasts from three to six months. Each patient’s results vary. It’s always best to consult with a licensed professional to determine what’s needed. When your treatment begins, careful monitoring on your results will determine how often re-treatment is needed.
