It has been proven that facial lines around the eyes, brow, and forehead are the result of aging skin, and muscle contractions which force the skin into wrinkles. BOTOX cosmetic doesn’t just fill in the wrinkle; it treats the muscle that causes the wrinkle.

This treatment is ideal for younger patients, both male and female, whose skin is just starting to age, as well as older patients who notice creases and want to prevent potential creases before they start.

BOTOX have also been approved for the treatment of severe underarm sweating for up to one year.

BOTOX cosmetic can improve the appearance of the frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar creases), the wrinkles at the outside edges of the eyes (crow’s feet), and horizontal forehead creases (worry lines).

Crow’s feet at the sides of the eyes cause a “squinting” look. Horizontal forehead creases give people an aged look.
