We all know BOTOX® Cosmetic is a hot-topic these days, helping many individuals look younger. But what is it? And how does it fight wrinkles? I get these questions a lot from prospective Los Angeles BOTOX Cosmetic patients. Here’s the scoop on BOTOX Cosmetic and how it works.

BOTOX Cosmetic is made of specially treated botulinum toxin, a chemical that blocks the nerve endings in your brow muscles and causes your muscles to relax. Your frown lines are caused by these same muscles contracting over and over again. With BOTOX Cosmetic, these muscles don’t contract, minimizing wrinkles.

Typically, the results of one treatment will last about 3-4 months, but if you keep up the injections, you can have wrinkle-free brows for a long time without cosmetic surgery!
