You laugh. You frown. You concentrate. And over time, those expressions leave their mark upon your face. Until today, there wasn’t a lot you could do about it.
But today there’s BOTOX® Cosmetic. A simple, non-surgical procedure that can dramatically reduce even your toughest wrinkle within days. One ten-minute treatment-a few tiny injections-relaxes the muscles between your brows that cause lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to four months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity in adult patients
Glabellar lines are the wrinkles between the brows that form when you frown. To make this expression, you move the corrugator and procerus muscles, which are located between and above the brows.
Movement of facial muscles can cause the skin between the brows to crease. As skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated frowning may create visible lines and wrinkles-even when your face is relaxed.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a natural, purified protein that relaxes muscles by blocking nerve impulses. With a few tiny injections administered by a physician, BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the muscles that cause the skin to crease. Once the muscles are at rest, the skin becomes smoother, creating a more natural and relaxed appearance.
In a clinical study with BOTOX® Cosmetic, the majority of people (82.5%) reported an improvement in the lines between their brows after a week, and results can last up to 4 months.
This simple, safe procedure takes about 10 minutes and can be performed in your doctor’s office. Since the procedure is non-surgical, no recovery time is needed. After a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, you can get back to work or other activities right away.
Allergan’s BOTOX® product is the only one of its type with over 10 years of success in treating patients with a variety of conditions.
