What is BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX has been used therapeutically for over 16 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. It is approved in more than 75 countries and remains the most studied botulinum toxin and one of the most widely researched medicines in the world. The same formulation with dosing specific to glabellar lines was approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 as BOTOX Cosmetic.

What is it used for?

It is a purified protein administered in a simple nonsurgical procedure that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe fron lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65. During treatment, very low doeses of BOTOX Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows.

What causes frown lines between the brows?

the lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. Two muscles are largely responsible for frown lines between the brows. When those muscles contract they draw the brows together. As skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated frowning can result in those moderate to severe lines between the brows.

What are the common side effects?

the most common side effects following injection include temporary eyelid droop and nausea.

How does BOTOX Cosmetic work?

Frown lines are causecd by overactive facial muscles. BOTOX Cosmetic is intramuscular, blocking the chemicals that cause facial muscles to contract, thereby relaxing them. BOTOX Cosmetic is the only product of its kind that affects the muscles that cause moderate to severe frown lines.
