BTXC-color-tagline-300x156

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein, derived from the anaerobic Clostridium botulinum bacterium, that has been used for more than 16 years for the reduction of wrinkles. It is administered through a simple injection, and is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States.

Frown lines between the eyebrows are due to contraction of small muscles beneath the inner part of each eyebrow. Injecting Botox into these muscles will weaken them causing improvement or disappearance of the frown lines. The mechanism of action of Botox is similar in other frown line areas of the face. The effect appears in 3-4 days and usually last 4 months, but can be shorter or longer.

The treatment not only reduces the appearance of existing lines, but also helps slow the further development of lines between the brows. Most commonly used to treat the frown lines between the eyebrows, BOTOX® Cosmetic is also used at our Petaluma and Hercules offices to minimize the appearance of horizontal forehead lines and crow’s feet around the eyes.
