Botox®


 

 

What is it?

  • BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Injecting BOTOX® into these muscles will temporarily reduce muscle activity. This is due to the chemical onabotulinumtoxinA which relaxes muscles in the injection area. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
