If there are certain facial features you are unhappy with, there are many cosmetic surgery procedures available to provide you with desired results, and BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of them. BOTOX Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved treatment available by prescription to temporarily improve the appearance of frown lines between the eyebrows and crow’s feet by the eyes in adults. BOTOX Cosmetic works to reduce the moderate to severe wrinkles that may have formed on your face with very little risk of side effects to patients.
Wrinkles are formed on our faces when we contract specific muscles. For example, when we squint, the muscles around our eyes contract and therefore cause crow’s feet. Wrinkles are also formed between our brows when we frown or concentrate. While muscle contraction is one of the main contributing factors to the creation of wrinkles, it is not the only one—a combination of factors cause wrinkles. These factors include changes in our cells, collagen depletion, or damages that have been caused by free radicals. Regardless of the cause of the wrinkles, the underlying muscle activity must be controlled in order to reduce their appearance.
