Lines and deep wrinkles in the face are caused by contractions of the delicate underlying facial muscles that happen when you smile, laugh, or frown. BOTOX® Cosmetic, a purified protein derivative, can effectively minimize, prevent, and reverse many of the lines between your eyebrows, across your forehead, and around your eyes.
BOTOX Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses to the tiny facial muscles related to expression, which prevents them from contracting. It’s been approved by the FDA as a safe and effective treatment for wrinkles and frown lines and has also been used for a variety of medical conditions including ophthalmological and neurological disorders.
BOTOX Cosmetic can also help reduce chin dimples, necklines, and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis) in the hands and armpits. Each BOTOX Cosmetic session consists of several tiny injections into the targeted muscle. These injections last three to six months and are a popular non-surgical treatment for reducing the signs of aging.
As skilled skincare experts, the Board-Certified Dermatologists and licensed Providers at Advanced Dermatology & Skin Surgery ensure a safe and effective treatment resulting in a more youthful appearance.

What to Expect When You Get BOTOX Cosmetic
BOTOX Cosmetic is fast, simple, and minimally invasive. Injections are administered directly into the area being treated using an ultra-fine needle, and discomfort from the injections is brief and minimal.
What Does BOTOX Cosmetic Cost?
