Botox Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of lines and wrinkles. This is a quick treatment with minimal downtime. Results are noticeable after 48 hours, and they can last up to 4 months. Most commonly treated areas are frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet near the eyes. Several other areas can be treated such as thick bands in the neck, thick jaw muscles, lip lines, gummy smiles, and excess sweating.
