What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medication that is injected into targeted facial muscles to reduce the severity of lines and winkles. Botox works by allowing the skin above the injected areas to smooth out. Botox is most commonly used to improve the look of crow’s feet around the eyes and frown lines between the eyebrows and in the forehead. Botox Cosmetic is technique-sensitive, that is, it should be applied with caution by well-trained physicians or an expert plastic surgeon like Dr. Vivian Hernandez.
