How does BOTOX® work?

BOTOX® works by blocking nerve impulses that make muscles contract. Injecting this medication into certain facial muscles causes them to be temporarily weakened, reducing their movement. With less movement, the skin over the muscle gradually smoothes out, fading out the frown lines and wrinkles.

How is BOTOX® administered?

Three to eight tiny injections per area are required. Discomfort is minimal and brief, but your skin can be numbed with cream or a cold pack if desired. You may resume normal activity immediately.
