BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription injectable most commonly used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines (or glabellar lines) between the brows in patients 18 to 65 years of age.
How BOTOX® Improves Your Appearance
As you frown or concentrate, you may notice the appearance of vertical lines between your eyebrows. These lines resemble the number 11 and are caused by the contraction of two muscles, the corrugator and the procerus. These frown lines may grow deeper over time, and the depth and intensity of the furrows tend to make you appear angry or anxious.
BOTOX® is the solution. Once injected, it begins to work over the course of a week to prevent muscles from contracting. Eventually your frown furrows disappear and your face appears more serene and relaxed.
How Long Does BOTOX® Last?
Depending on the severity of your frown lines and the amount of BOTOX® required to reverse unwanted furrows, the treatment can last three to six months. Over time, the muscles gradually begin to function and lines and wrinkles reemerge. Ageless Med Spa treats many return patients who want to maintain a smooth, serene facial expression.
