What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe wrinkles lines in certain areas of the face in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles of the face. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe wrinkles that make your face look tired and aged.
