BOTOX® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical treatment that can temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, lip lines (mouth frowns), crows feet near the eyes and thick bands in the neck (necklace lines) for décolleté smoothing. The toxin blocks the nerve impulses, temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that Botox is effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating and muscle spasms in the neck and eyes.
This relaxation of the muscles is temporary, usually lasting 3-5 months and it is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery ranked BOTOX® Cosmetic as the most popular physician-administered aesthetic procedure in the United States for the fourth year in a row (surgical and nonsurgical combined).
