Wrinkle Relaxers

Wrinkle relaxers, such as Botox® can smooth wrinkles from expression lines on your forehead and around your eyes. 

Botox®

Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. When you frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow's feet. Botox Cosmetic® is an FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet. It works beneath the skin's surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow's feet to form over time.
