What Is It?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medication used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for an average of three months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Botox can also be injected into the forehead and crow’s feet areas but it is considered an “off label” use by the FDA and to be used at the discretion of the physician.
