Advantages of BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic was the first FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of wrinkles like frown lines, crow’s feet, and laugh lines without surgery. The procedure is so simple that no sedation or anesthesia is needed and the effects are noticeable immediately.
How Does it Work?
The treatment works by weakening the facial muscles beneath the skin that case wrinkles. A few drops of BOTOX® Cosmetic are injected with a tiny needle into the muscles that create wrinkles. When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into a muscle, it blocks the nerve impulse from reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle does not contract. When used appropriately, BOTOX® Cosmetic does not affect normal facial expressions.
