BOTOX Cosmetic is a simple, nonsurgical, physician administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines in people from 18 to 65 years of age. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). BOTOX is considered the gold standard for treatment of wrinkles, lines, and the aging face of women and men. BOTOX is a highly purified, naturally occurring protein which has the ability to very precisely relax the muscles to which it is injected. The resultant relaxation of treated muscles can last 3 to 4 months, and may not alter your natural expression or features. One 10-minute treatment – a few tiny injections – and within days there is a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe facial lines, taking years off of your appearance.
