What is Botox® Cosmetic?

Botox® has been used therapeutically for over 20 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. It is approved in more than 75 countries and remains the most studied botlulinum toxin and one of the most widely researched medicines in the world. Botox® was approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2002 as a cosmetic treatment.


BOTOX’s active ingredient, botulinum toxin type A, works by temporarily inhibiting the impulse that causes muscle contraction, thereby relaxing the treated muscles and preventing them from forming facial wrinkles and furrows. The most commonly treated areas are the “frown” lines between the brows, horizontal forehead lines, and “crow’s feet” lines around the eyes.

Botox is a simple, non-surgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between your brows that developed over time.

How is it applied?
One ten-minute treatment- a few tiny injections- relaxes the muscles that cause those deep, persistent lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to 3-4 months.
