Botox, onabotulinumtoxinA injection, is a purified protein used to treat & prevent fine lines and wrinkles.
Botox works to temporarily immobilize muscle activity by blocking nerve-muscle communication. Botox may result in the treated muscle relaxing & allowing the skin to smooth out. Results are normally seen within 10-14 days & last 3-4 months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is indicated in adult patients for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity, moderate to severe lateral canthal lines associated with orbicularis oculi activity, and moderate to severe forehead lines associated with frontalis activity.
