BOTOX® Cosmetic (botulinum toxin type A) is a purified protein that temporarily reduces moderate to severe expression lines. BOTOX calms the nerves impulse, quieting the muscles ability to contract, leading to softening and smoothing of expression lines. Introduced in 2002, it is the first neuromodulator to be approved by the FDA to temporarily treat moderate to severe glabellar lines between the brows.
In addition to treating expression lines between the eyebrows, BOTOX is commonly used off-label to treat other areas, including the forehead and around the eyes. Additional off-label areas that can be treated include: the base of the nose, the lower face, vertical lip lines, the chin and even the neck. BOTOX can also help contour the face. By knowing precisely which muscles to relax with an injection of BOTOX, a skilled injector can promote lifting of the corners of the mouth or eyes, and can even soften the appearance of a squared jaw.
Low doses of BOTOX are administered directly into the muscles that cause stubborn expression lines. In 10 days or less, patients see improvement that generally lasts up to 3-4 months. BOTOX offers real, noticeable results with no surgery and no recovery time.
