Botox is a very popular way to visibly smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines between your brows, the horizontal forehead lines, and the crows feet. Improvement can be seen within days and may last up to 4 months. The lines that appear between your brows (glabellar lines) and on the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet) actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. After years of crinkling and wrinkling, those glabellar lines start to linger longer and can become more pronounced. For women, whose faces tend to be more animated than men’s, and whose skin is typically more delicate, these lines may appear exaggerated and more permanent.
Fortunately, there is a way to temporarily reduce moderate to severe glabellar lines. Treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic can visibly smooth and soften moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. An improvement can be seen within days and may last up to 4 months, although results may vary. BOTOX Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time.
In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women surveyed rated the improvement in the appearance of frown lines between their brows as moderate to better 1 month after treatment. One 10-minute treatment and a few tiny injections and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months.
