What causes frown lines between the brows?
The lines that appear between your brows actually result from facial muscle contractions (facial expression) through the passage of time. As we age, skin becomes less elastic, while repeated muscle contractions restrict the growth of elastin in those areas, resulting in frown lines between the brows (glabellar lines) and the vertical lines through the forehead.
Not only does this treatment make you look younger, but many people have noticed they look more relaxed and approachable.
BOTOX® can smooth, flatten and relax:
- Horizontal creases on the forehead
- Vertical creases between the eyes; known as the elevens (11s) – (the glabella area)
- Wrinkles on the temple side of the eyes, the “crow’s feet”
- Wrinkles on the sides of the nose, “bunny lines”
- Wrinkles on the upper lip, pursed lips
- Vertical cords on the neck
- And Can be used to reduce calf and jaw muscles

What can I expect from a BOTOX Cosmetic procedure?
A quick and simple 10-minute proceure consisting of a few tiny injections where results are typically seen in days and continue to improve during the first two weeks after the treatment.
Anesthesia is rarely required, because the needles are so small. You can expect to experience very minimal and brief discomfort, even for those of us with a strong aversion to needles.
There is a small chance of slight bruising at the injection site, which is very temporary and can be easily covered with makeup. Depending on the individual and the dosage, the effects commonly lasts from 3 to 4 months, with a few people who claim a little over 6 months and a few claim less than 3 months. Results may vary. That’s a good amount of time for these dynamic lines to get a nice filling effect.
Botox® can also be used in a variety of medical conditions, including treatment of migraine and tension headache, chronic muscular pain, facial twitching, tremors, muscle reduction (commonly jaw and calfs) and is a wonderful treatment for excessive sweating of the underarms,palms and soles of the feet.
