BOTOX® is a purified protein produced by clostridium botulinum bacterium. It is a non-surgical, physician administered treatment that temporarily reduces moderate to severe frown lines in people 18 – 65. During treatment very low doses of BOTOX® are administered through tiny injections directly into the muscles.
Moderate to severe frown lines form between your brows over time as a result of muscle activity. BOTOX® is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. BOTOX® blocks the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles reducing activities that cause persistent lines.
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. The injection needle is VERY small and is described as being less painful than a “mosquito bite”.
Results from your BOTOX® treatment can last for 3 – 4 months. If you discontinue treatment your frown lines will gradually look as they did before treatment.
