What is botox? How does it work?

BOTOX® (onabotulinumtoxinA) is part of a group of drugs known as biologics—biologic medBOTOX-before-and-after-photosicines are made from living things. BOTOX® is a purified protein that is made from a type of bacteria called Clostridium botulinum type A.

BOTOX® targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your provider will inject these muscles with BOTOX® to temporarily reduce muscle activity.

BOTOX® targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your provider will inject these muscles with BOTOX® to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.

For the crow’s feet area, your provider will inject 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.

Injecting BOTOX® into the muscles that cause crow’s feet lines temporarily reduces the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.

For the frown lines area, your provider will administer 5 injections into muscles in your forehead, depending on the severity of the wrinkles and the patients concerns.
