What is Botox®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine facial filler that is injected into muscles and is an effective fix for moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX targets areas such as forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet, and other facial wrinkles.
How does Botox® Cosmetic Work?
It works because it actually weakens the facial muscles that are causing the wrinkles to show. The weakened muscles relax so that the skin can flatten and smooth out. BOTOX® is available to everyone and allows you to look your freshest and youngest even as aging tries to take that away from you.
When Should I Consider Botox?
If you have visible lines in any of the following locations, you should definentely consider starting BOTOX.
- On your forehead (transverse worry lines)
- Between your eyebrows (Frown lines)
- Smile lines (crow’s feet)
You don’t have to wait to use BOTOX® to treat wrinkles that are already present, BOTOX® not only treats wrinkles – it prevents them.
How long does it take to see results from Botox?
Within 24 to 48 hours you may begin to notice softening in the appearance of your moderate to severe lines. Areas will continue to improve up to a month after injections.
