Do you have lines between your eyebrows that make you look angry all the time? Botox Cosmetic ® injections are a way to drastically reduce the appearance of frown lines, laugh lines and crow’s feet. The lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time.
Two muscles are largely responsible for frown lines between the brows. When those muscles contract, they draw the brows together. As skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated frowning can result in those moderate to severe lines between your brows.
Botox Cosmetic ® works by blocking nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of those muscles. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smoothes out, and the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows begin to fade.
Botox Cosmetic ® is a purified protein. It is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in patients 18 to 65 years of age. During treatment, very low doses of Botox Cosmetic ® is administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows.
Botox Cosmetic ® is the only treatment of its type approved by the FDA for this use. The treatment is minimally invasive and nonsurgical. It requires no recovery time and causes little discomfort.
The injections are simple and safe and no anesthesia is required. Our patients experience little or no pain and may immediately return to work and normal activities. This outpatient procedure is performed by Dr. Kahn himself and takes 30 minutes or less.
