Since the approval of BOTOX® Cosmetic by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 2002, Allergan has virtually changed the face of medical aesthetics. Men and women between the ages of 18 to 65 now have the ability to choose science-based, non-invasive medical aesthetic solutions, including BOTOX® Cosmetic and the JUVÉDERM™ family of dermal fillers, to achieve their own natural results. Since its approval, BOTOX® Cosmetic has been the number-one physician-administered aesthetic procedure in the United States.
A simple, non-surgical procedure for temporarily smoothing moderate to severe glabellar lines - the vertical frown lines between the eyebrows that look like an "11" - in adult women and men aged 18 to 65. BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the dominant facial muscles that cause the "11s" to form by blocking nerve impulses that trigger wrinkle-causing muscle contractions, creating a smoothed and improved appearance between the brows. Results can last up to four months and may vary with each patient.
