What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable agent used to temporarily diminish or eliminate lines and wrinkles on the face by relaxing underlying facial muscles. It is derived from botulinum toxin type A, a bacterium-produced neuromuscular toxin that can be deadly in a pure state. BOTOX® Cosmetic contains a highly diluted form of the toxin and has been proven safe. For this reason, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved BOTOX® botulinum toxin treatment for alleviating eye-muscle disorders and smoothing frown lines. This exceptional treatment is often used in conjunction with facial plastic surgery procedures such as a face lift or eyelid lift to maximize its cosmetic benefit.
BOTOX® Cosmetic provides candidates for this increasingly popular procedure with an effective treatment for facial lines and wrinkles. From the treatment of “crow’s feet” at the edge of the eyes to glabellar lines (wrinkles between the brows), BOTOX® Cosmetic can smooth a wide range of facial lines and wrinkles with a simple 10-minute treatment. BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for people aged 18 to 65.
BOTOX® Cosmetic has been proven safe for a wide range of candidates. While there are many medical uses for the protein that makes up BOTOX® Cosmetic, the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles is far and away the most common application. Anyone who would like to smooth wrinkles through BOTOX® Cosmetic – whether they be crow’s feet around the eyes or wrinkles around the mouth – is potentially a candidate for this effective treatment. The best way to find out if BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you is to speak with a physician.
Candidates for Alternative BOTOX® Uses
There are many other applications for botulinum toxin – the protein from which BOTOX® Cosmetic is derived. Botulinum toxin was first isolated in 1946, and medical applications for the substance were discovered in the 1950s. Alternative uses of BOTOX® Cosmetic now include the following:
- Hyperhidrosis (Excessive Sweating)
- Migraine Headaches
- Dystonia (Muscle Spasms)
- Jaw Tension
- Chronic Pain
