BOTOX®, the trade name for Botulinum Toxin Type A, safely provides temporary reduction of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows. A few tiny injections and a few days can make a noticeable difference, and the results last as long as four months. BOTOX injections can be administered to men and women from age 18 to 65 with excellent results. The minimally invasive procedure involves injecting the purified protein into the muscles that cause frown lines between the eyebrows.
The procedure takes only 10 minutes and requires no anesthesia. There is only minimal discomfort, and patients can resume normal activities immediately afterward. Results will become apparent within a few days following the procedure. After approximately four months, a follow-up treatment may be in order. Without follow-up treatments, the lines between the brows will resume their pre-treatment appearance.
