BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medication that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines. When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contractions, those wrinkles can linger after the muscles are at rest. BOTOX® works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces the muscle activity that causes persistent lines to form.
Although the results are visable after a BOTOX® treatment, you will still be able to have facial expression: you will be able to look surprised or frown, just without those wrinkles! You will notice a softening in your appearance within a few days, and most people notice great results for approximately 4 months.
As with all medications, be sure that your injector knows your medical history. Be sure you know what to expect and when to schedule your next appointment.
