BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
How moderate to severe crow’s feet lines form?
Crow’s feet lines.
Crow’s feet lines are caused primarily by repeated contractions of the orbicularis oculi muscle that encircles the eye. The orbicularis oculi muscles are responsible for blinking and eyelid closure.
How moderate to severe glabellar lines form?
Glabellar lines are caused by repeated muscle contractions of the corrugator and orbicularis oculi muscles medially and the procerus and depressor supercilii inferiorly, creating the appearance of a furrowed brow.
