Your face expresses joy, surprise or concern, especially in the region around and above the eyes. Over the years, these repetitive expressions leave their mark, creating creases, lines and wrinkles near your brows and eyes where the muscles contract to show your emotions. Botox cosmetic works to soften these lines and wrinkles, giving you a more youthful and energetic appearance.
Botox cosmetic is an FDA-approved drug to treat glabellar and lateral canthal lines on the face. Glabellar lines are also known as frown lines, the “11” that can appear between the eyebrows. Lateral canthal lines are at the corner of the eyes, also referred to as “crow’s feet” or smile lines. Botox injections use bacteria called clostridium botulinum that stops the nerve messages to the muscles that create these lines, smoothing these areas to diminish lines and wrinkles.
