BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription injection that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate-to-severe forehead lines, frown lines between the brows and severe crow’s feet in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic remains one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments, currently approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. * The BOTOX® Cosmetic record of experience aesthetic specialists have come to know and trust. In addition, Allergan-sponsored clinical trials and more than 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals evaluated both the safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. In addition, when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from repeated frowning and squinting over the years. We will inject these muscles with BOTOX® to temporarily reduce muscle activity. As a result, you will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes wrinkles to form over time. Our highly trained nurse will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result? A visible reduction in the appearance of those lines.
Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX® Cosmetic a part of what they do for themselves.
