BOTOX®

The lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time.  When powerful muscles between the brows contract, they draw the brows together, causing the skin to fold or furrow. As skin becomes less elastic with age, those folds or furrows result in stubborn lines.

How does BOTOX® cosmetic work?

During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles responsible for frown lines between the brows.  By blocking the release of a chemical that causes these muscles to contract. BOTOX® Cosmetic enables them to relax.  The effects are very localized and, when administered by an experienced physician, do not affect your ability to smile, laugh, or otherwise show expression.  BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only product of its kind that has been approved for use in this area.
