BOTOX® Cosmetic

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 contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein 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. Injecting these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic will temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows. 

 

There's only one BOTOX® Cosmetic, and it's #1!

 

One of the most popular non-surgical treatments on the market, BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected directly into the facial muscles responsible for wrinkling your skin. Dr. Trenkle expertly targets these muscles to preserve your facial expressions, but inhibit the effects of aging. You can enjoy the benefits of a BOTOX® treatment immediately after your appointment, and maintain your younger look by coming back every 3 or 4 months for follow-up treatment.

Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX® Cosmetic a part of their personal care. Today, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.*
