Botox is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to temporarily improve frown lines in the face. Approximately 11.8 million Botox procedures have been administered in the U.S. since 2002 according to Allergan, Inc.
How Is Botox Done?
Botox is administered by a healthcare professional in a non-surgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles.
How Does Botox Work?
Botox works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces wrinkle forming muscle activity, thus moderately reducing the appearance of lines.
Results vary from patient to patient but visible results have been shown to last up to 4 months. If you do not continue treatments, the frown lines between your brows will gradually return to the way they looked before treatment.
