Botox Cosmetic

Over a million people have been treated with
BOTOX Cosmetic since 2002

BOTOX is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure, with over a million people having been treated with it since 2002. This sort of treatment is used to smooth wrinkles and fine lines around the brows, eyes, and other areas of the face. It is currently the only cosmetic treatment of its type that has been approved by the FDA.

The liquid in BOTOX Cosmetic is made up of a purified protein produced by a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum. It works by reducing the level of activity in the injected muscles, which can form those unwanted lines in different areas of your face. The treatment takes only about 15 minutes, and you will see noticeable results within a few weeks. While results can vary person-to-person, they will generally last anywhere between 3 to 5 months.
