What to expect

How does it work?

For temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow’s feet, doctor will inject BOTOX Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes-called the orbicularis oculi muscles.

For temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines, doctor will inject BOTOX Cosmetics into 2 muscles-the corrugator and procerus muscles.
