BOTOX Cosmetic is the only approved prescription medicine to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults. It relaxes the muscle under a wrinkle, blocking signals that go from the nerves to the muscle.
After injection of Botox, the muscle can no longer contract, causing wrinkles to relax and soften. Wrinkles that are caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy.

BOTOX Cosmetic Results
Botox works beneath the skin’s surface targeting the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet. You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
- Glabella: The smooth part of the forehead above and between the eyebrows.
- Crow’s Feet: A branching wrinkle at the outer corner of the eye.
- Forehead: The area above the eyebrows.
How is Botox different from dermal fillers?
Although both treatments are injectable and can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, the way they create change is different. Botox weakens the muscles responsible for frowning and squinting, smoothing even deep frown lines. Quite differently, dermal fillers are injected to replace lost fat and volume in the face, creating more definition and filling the skin out, naturally reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
