What is Botox®
BOTOX Cosmetic™ (a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacteria) has been used safely by doctors for many years. BOTOX Cosmetic™ has been used for wrinkle therapy since the early 1990's. BOTOX Cosmetic™ injections relax the muscles that create wrinkles thereby lessening the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines and crow's feet - wrinkles that that occur with overuse of facial muscles.
BOTOX Cosmetic™ has grown to become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures; there are many reasons for this. Firstly BOTOX Cosmetic™ attacks wrinkles at their source. If you develop a frown line, putting a substance in to fill that line is not as effective without the use of BOTOX Cosmetic™ to stop the frowning. With BOTOX Cosmetic™, the negative image of frowning is stopped and the lines created by frowning are improved. The same applies to forehead lines and crows' feet: If you can stop the cause of wrinkles then you will help to prevent them from returning or worsening.
