What is BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an injection that temporarily weakens the muscle into which it is injected. When injected into muscles of the face in appropriate doses, muscles relax and the lines of animation and age soften or go away. The effects of BOTOX® gradually wear off over four to six months.
Who is a candidate for BOTOX®?
Anyone bothered by forehead lines, a crease or creases between the eyebrows, or crow’s feet by the eyes may be a candidate for BOTOX®. BOTOX® is occasionally used in other areas of the face; however, around the eyes is the most common area treated.
