Botox® cosmetic is a prescription medication that is injected into muscles to improve the look of wrinkles and frown lines.  It is a simple, nonsurgical, physician-administered procedure that can temporarily smooth the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people aged 18 to 65.  In addition to its FDA-approved indications, it is used in many other situations to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles elsewhere on the face and neck, and treatment areas can include crow's feet, gummy smiles, smoker's lines, neck bands, and downturned smiles.  Results can last up to 4 months, though individual results can vary.

Botox® cosmetic has become the most popular physician-administered aesthetic procedure performed in the United States, making it number one among both surgical and non-surgical procedures.  It is a simple way for patients to invest in themselves, and it is the cosmetic procedure with the highest patient satisfaction (approximately 97% of people are happy with their Botox® treatments according to patient satisfaction surveys).  Treatments are completed in as little as 10 minutes, and there is minimal downtime following the procedure.  The result of treatment is a refreshed and restored you.
