BOTOX® Cosmetic (Botulinum A toxin) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age.  Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As your skin becomes less elastic, those moderate to severe frown lines remain—even when your muscles are not contracting.

KT before and after (3)With a few  injections, BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to the injected muscles, which reduces the muscle activity that causes those persistent frown lines to form.  The relaxed muscles are only temporary so re-injection is generally needed to maintain the achieved smooth, youthful appearance.
