What is Botox Cosmetic and How Does it Work?
Botox Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxin A) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles. It is used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows of adults. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles thereby reducing muscle activity that causes those lines to form.
Botox Cosmetic works by blocking communication between your nerve endings and muscles, thus reducing muscle contractions. Fewer muscle contractions means your wrinkles will relax, soften and smooth out.
Botox Cosmetic is effective on wrinkles caused by repeated movement of muscles. These wrinkles are very common and are also referred to as “dynamic” wrinkles. Some examples of “dynamic” wrinkles are crow’s feet, horizontal forehead lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows.
As you age, your wrinkles will continue to increase in number and deepen in the skin. They can make you look angry, tired or sad – even when you’re not feeling that way. If you – like most people – want to look your best, it’s time to consider getting a Botox treatment. It’s safe, effective and easy!
