BOTOX® Treatment & Services
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment improves moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults. You can get treated in both areas at the same time, that’s the beauty of BOTOX® Cosmetic.
How Does It Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet, the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
For temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow’s feet, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes, called the orbicularis oculi muscles.
