BOTOX Cosmetic®, by Allergan, has been used therapeutically for over 16 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. Botox injected into facial muscles binds to the nerve endings and prevents nerve impulses from traveling to the muscle. The paralyzing effect temporarily reduces or eliminates previous skin creasing and new skin creasing is avoided. Botox can be used to reduce frown lines, crow’s feet and wrinkling of the brow.
Botox therapy takes just a few minutes. The effect is noticeable in several days and will typically last 4-6 months. To learn more about Botox, visit the Botox Cosmetic website.
