BOTOX Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is one of the most popular minimally-invasive appearance-enhancing treatments without surgery. It’s made from the bacteria Clostridium botulinum and works by blocking nerve activity in the injection site. BOTOX Cosmetic must be injected correctly to avoid potential side effects. Botox may include uneven results, muscle weakness, drooping eyelids, double vision, or difficulty breathing or swallowing. Botox Cosmetic reduces wrinkles by temporarily blocking nerve signals and muscle contraction. It helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and between the eyebrows and slows new lines from forming. It is minimally invasive, with no incisions or general anesthesia. It is also relatively quick and easy to administer. Before your treatment, remove any makeup and avoid taking blood-thinning medication to reduce the risk of bruising. A topical anesthetic or ice can help reduce discomfort. During the procedure, your doctor will inject small doses of Botox Cosmetic into specific facial muscles. The
