BOTOX® Cosmetic

Reduce facial wrinkles

Botox is an injectable medication used to decrease facial wrinkles and smooth the skin. Many wrinkles, especially those around the eyes, in the forehead, or frown lines, are caused by muscle contraction. Botox weakens the muscles, resulting in diminished wrinkles. Botox injections are usually repeated 2-3 times per year to maintain the desired effect.

Best Candidates

  • Brow wrinkles (“frown lines” above the nose, between the eyebrows)
  • Forehead wrinkles
  • Crow’s feet (wrinkles next to the eyes)
  • Wrinkles or depressions around the mouth and chin
