Botox is a prescription medicine injected into the brow and forehead to reduce the appearance of frown lines.
Aging skin and wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, hormone loss, or damage caused by free radicals. The “11s” – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – result from muscle contractions.
When you concentrate, squint, or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. After years of frequent contraction, those wrinkles can linger even after the muscles are at rest.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
Botox works by temporarily paralyzing the muscles which reduces the skin wrinkles caused by motion. More than just a vanity product it is also used in numerous medical conditions. Some of these include: migraine headache, hyperhidrosis, over active bladder, strabismus, post stroke for spastic limbs and many others. More uses are currently being researched.
