BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical injection which can temporarily smooth dynamic lines and wrinkles of the face and neck. A variety of wrinkles can be treated, including forehead creases, frown lines, crow’s feet, and neck bands. Botox, which is the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, works by blocking the nerve impulses and temporarily relaxing the muscles responsible for wrinkling. The result is a smoother, more youthful and refreshed appearance.
Good candidates for Botox include men and women who are healthy and have lines that are not yet deeply etched into the skin. Botox is not appropriate for everyone, including women who are pregnant and individuals with certain neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome.
