Approved by the FDA, BOTOX Cosmetic is usually recommended to eliminate frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead wrinkles almost immediately. It is the most common cosmetic procedure in the United States and rarely has harmful side effects.
"BOTOX" is a brand name for botulinum toxin, which works as a muscle relaxer. When injected by a trained professional in small, controlled amounts, botulinum toxin prevents muscles in the face from contracting, causing wrinkles to soften.
The results of BOTOX therapy can be dramatic. Many patients notice significant changes in their appearance, especially those whose furrowed brows caused them to appear angry, sad, or tired. BOTOX therapy can be performed in a matter of minutes, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately after treatment. The effects of BOTOX therapy can last for up to six months.
