You with Fewer Wrinkles
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
Botox is used to relax the muscles in the upper region (Glabella, Forehead, Crow’s Feet) of the face which prevent excessive contractions which cause the lines.
Whether you’re in your 20s or your 60s, Botox is the “go to” treatment to that lets you “look like you” but with fewer lines for that “I Got This” look. Pro-youth skin care should start before signs of damage are evident, which is why starting in your 20s is a great option to improve your appearance by softening visible lines and wrinkles as well as prevent the development of more.

How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works to Smooth Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Many factors such as reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment cause wrinkles, but it’s repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, that gradually cause facial lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath that the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother. That’s why this it’s a perfect wrinkles smoothing option for anyone regardless if your in your 20s or any age above.

There is NO substitute for BOTOX Cosmetic. Did you know the FDA has stated that BOTOX® Cosmetic is “non-interchangeable”? If you see an advertisement for Botox but then a practice uses another neurotoxin, that is against the law. That’s because Botox’s safety and effectiveness cannot be claimed by another product. The potency – or strength – of BOTOX® Cosmetic is measured in scientifically defined units that cannot be compared to any other product, due to its unique manufacturing process. There are no substitutes for it. People who are prescribed a biologic product have a right to know exactly what they are receiving; be sure to ask for BOTOX® Cosmetic by name.

You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.

Do I need to be over 40 to start using Botox® Cosmetic?
It’s not your age that determines when BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you, it’s the severity of your lines. In fact, 64% of plastic surgeons report seeing a rise in cosmetic surgery or injectable treatments for patients in their early 30’s.
The truth is, everyone’s lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors, from cellular changes that may occur over time, to reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.
Whenever your lines start to bother you, go speak with your doctor. They can help you determine if treatment is right for you.

Remember, only BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved to treat all three of these areas.
For the crow’s feet area, your specialist will inject 3 areas of the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the muscle that frames the other eye.

For the forehead lines area, your specialist will administer 5 injections into a muscle in your forehead.
