Many wrinkles of the face are the result of muscle movement. These so-called “dynamic” lines commonly occur between the eyebrows (frown lines), around the eyes (smile lines), or on the forehead.
Many people feel that their frown lines always make them look angry. Botox is commonly used to improve or eliminate these dynamic or muscle related lines.
BOTOX is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent composed of sterile, purified botulinum toxin type A that is derived from the bacterium, Clostridium Botulinum. BOTOX is carefully and consistently produced in a controlled laboratory environment. BOTOX has been used medically since the 1980s in the treatment of blepharospasm (uncontrolled twitching or spasm of the eyelid).
For the last 10 years, cosmetic surgeons have used BOTOX to reduce wrinkles associated with muscle movement.
