What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA approved treatment for temporary improvement of moderate to severe facial wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic works at the motor nerve endings to relax muscles, smoothing the skin in that area.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is indicated for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe glabellar lines associated with corrugator and/or procerus muscle activity in patients 18 to 65 years of age.
