Botox is a medication that can relax the muscles of facial expression. It is used primarily for reducing the appearance of the wrinkles caused by years of smiling, laughing, and frowning. The areas that respond the best to Botox are the smile lines around the eyes (Crow's feet) and the frown lines between the eyebrows (Glabellar lines). Dr. Lin is an experienced Botox physician and is a member of the Botox Physician's Network.

What is BOTOX Cosmetic?

A BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is a simple, nonsurgical procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between your brows that develop over time. One 10-minute treatment -- a few tiny injections -- relaxes the muscles that cause those lines to form and keeps them relaxed up to 4 months. BOTOX Cosmetic has been widely tested. Now it's approved by the FDA.The results are dramatic and apparent within days. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of the men and women surveyed rated the improvement in their brow lines as moderate to better. For many, BOTOX Cosmetic "erases" these lines. Unlike surgery, BOTOX Cosmetic is fast, simple, and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery. Most people return directly to work or normal activity following treatment. Within days, they report looking more natural and relaxed. With BOTOX Cosmetic, they'll know you've done something, they just won't know what.

What isn't BOTOX Cosmetic?

BOTOX Cosmetic is not magic. It's medicine, the result of years of careful research and testing. Allergan's BOTOX product is the only one of its type with over 10 years of success in treating patients with a variety of conditions. With dosing specific to treat frown lines, this same product is now available as BOTOX Cosmetic.

BOTOX Cosmetic will not radically change your appearance or make you look like you've had "work done." It will not make you look 20 years younger. Because it's highly localized and administered intramuscularly, its effects are usually confined to the region of injection, and BOTOX Cosmetic does not remain in your body indefinitely.

Is BOTOX Cosmetic right for you?

If you're between the ages 18 to 65 and doing all you can to look your best is important to you, BOTOX Cosmetic may be for you. If reducing those tough lines between your brows would make you feel more approachable, BOTOX Cosmetic may be for you. Thousands of appearance - conscious women and men have already discovered the benefits of BOTOX Cosmetic. Not just models and movie stars, but ordinary people - teachers, mothers, and business people from all walks of life.
