Botox®

Botox® is a purified protein that is derived from the Clostridium botulinum bacteria. It is a nonsurgical method that temporarily blocks the nerve impulses that control the muscles that cause frown lines to occur.

Botox will temporarily eliminate unwanted facial wrinkles. It will smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines).
