Botox® Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, professionally administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
Take a look at men and women who’ve had Botox® Cosmetic treatments, and see for yourself! One 10-minute treatment, a few tiny injections and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months. Results may vary.
Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
In 2005, almost 3.3 million procedures were performed with FDA-approved Botox® Cosmetic. When it comes to selecting a physician-administered aesthetic treatment, chances are you’ll want proof, not just claims. The proof for Botox® Cosmetic is in the numbers.
