Botox (Onabotulinum toxin A)

Botox Cosmetic is a purified protein that is FDA approved to reduce the appearance of some facial wrinkles, providing a more youthful appearance. It is used to soften the appearance of lines between the eyebrows, on the forehead and "crow's feet".Botox works by reducing the activity of certain muscles that lead to frown lines due to repeated use. The procedure is relatively painless, takes less than 15 minutes, and has virtually no downtime.

It has become the number one physician-administered cosmetic procedure in the U.S., due to its safety and efficacy. If you look "angry" even when you are not, due to the presence of deep glabellar furrows, you may be an excellent candidate for Botox.
