|Botox is a purified protein administered in a simple non-surgical procedure that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in people aged 18 to 65.
During treatment, very low doses of Botox Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows.
Botox has been used therapeutically for over 15 years to treat a variety of medical conditions. It is approved in more than 75 countries. Botox for the therapeutic use remains one of the most widely researched medicines in the world. You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. The appearance of the area between your brows may continue for up to a week. By day 30 in a patient clinical study, 89% of patients judged the severity of their lines between their brows as moderate or better.
