Botox® Cosmetics causes muscles to relax, thus lessening facial wrinkles including crow’s feet, forehead, scowl lines and more. Botox® Cosmetics (botulinum toxin Type A) was approved by the FDA in 1989 for treatment of lazy eye, uncontrolled muscle spasms around the eye and facial nerve disorders. As research continued, cosmetic uses for Botox were developed.

Facial muscles attach directly from bone to skin. As a result, every time you make an expression, the skin creases. After years, wrinkles are formed. Botox® Cosmetics relaxes the muscles temporarily (usually for two to four months), enabling the skin to become smoother. The surgeon administers the Botox® Injections with a few quick injections taking only seconds, and the final results are seen within 48-72 hours.
