BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the
appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and
crow’s feet lines in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments
and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries.

refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum.

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s
feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years.
The physician will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce
muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and
frown lines between your brows
