BOTOX® is a prescription injectable that is simple, nonsurgical and physician-administered. It is a treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Discover the proven results that 11 million women and men have experienced.
One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there's a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, which can last up to 4 months. Results may vary.
The pictures above show a patient with treatment, before and after. Notice the glabella (space inbetween the eyebrows). There is a noted difference in wrinkling because the muscle is relaxed by the Botox treatment.
BOTOX® is different from dermal fillers because it is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those worry or frown lines to form over time.
