BOTOX Cosmetic is a prescription medication that is injected into muscles of expression to improve the look of moderate and severe frown lines for a short period of time (temporary). It it administered by a healthcare professional as a simple injection directly into the muscles of facial expression. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles, and subsequently reducing the muscle activity that cause the frown lines on the forehead, between the eyes, bridge of the nose and around the eyes. Full effect will be noticed in approximately 2 weeks and it may last between 3-4 months. There is some evidence that after several repeated injections, the effects last longer.
