Millions of women already know Botox Cosmetic – a nonsurgical treatment that helps temporarily improve moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.
Botulinum toxins are biologics, a type of purified protein. Since biologics are made from living things, they are unique. So, even if a botulinum toxin product has the same ingredients as another, they may not have the same effect.
Because biologics have a complex structure, it is difficult to recreate a product without knowing exactly how it’s made (which is specific to each manufacturer). That’s why the amount of the dose (Unit dosing) and formulations are different between products. Be sure and ask your healthcare professional if Botox Cosmetic is right for you.
Botox Cosmetic treatment is a quick, 10-minute procedure that requires no downtime or recovery – it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. With a few tiny injections, Botox Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to the muscles in your forehead – called the “corrugator” and “procerus” muscles – reducing their movement. This decreased muscle activity helps lessen the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows for real, noticeable results.
Botox Cosmetic starts to work within 24 to 48 hours. In clinical trials, a majority of people saw significant improvement at 7 days, with results continuing to improve for up to a month.
