Botox® Cosmetics Treatment
Botox® Cosmetic is a physician-administered treatment that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkiles between the brows. It is the only treatment of its type approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and is intended for use on people from 18 to 65 years of age.
Botox® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
- Nearly 90% of men and women surveyed in clinical trials rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better 1 month after treatment. Results vary.
- Results can last for up to 4 months, and may vary.
- Botox® Cosmetic was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2002 for the temporary treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people ages 18 to 65 and almost 3.3 million procedures were performed in 2005 alone.
- The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery ranked Botox® Cosmetic as the most popular physician-administered aesthetic procedure in the United States for the fourth year in a row (surgical and nonsurgical combined).
