Cosmetic (Botulinum Toxin Type A
) is an injection used to temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows caused by muscle movement over time. Botox is available for both men and women and is administered in a few small injections directly into the muscle. Results are seen within days and can last up to four months. There is no recovery time and normal activity can proceed immediately following the injection.
