Facial furrows form mainly in response to normal aging (increased by sun exposure) and the pull of underlying muscles. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by decreasing the pull of these muscles thereby allowing treatment of some skin creases without surgery.
Botox® has become a sensation in recent years, and with good reason. Rather than surgically sculpting the shape of your face, these gentle injections simple ease it back into a more relaxed, youthful glow. The mechanism is as simple as it is effective.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the brand name for botulinum toxin type A, nature's most potent blocker of nerve impulses. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by partially blocking the nerve to the injected muscle.
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are best on the upper third of the face. Forehead lines, furrows between the eyebrows, and lines around the eyes (crow's feet) respond favorably to BOTOX® Cosmetic. Frown lines (below the mouth) and chin creases may also be improved with a BOTOX® Cosmetic injection, but response here varies by individuals.
Please remember, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are temporary. The effect wears off in about four to six months. If desired, the injection may be repeated, and modified to achieve a different result each time.
