WHAT IS BOTOX®?
We only use Allergan products
BOTOX® is a prescription medicine made up of a naturally occurring protein that interferes with muscle contraction. It is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows. It temporarily blocks nerve stimulation of muscles where injected, so that muscle contraction is weakened or inhibited.
