Two muscles are primarily responsible for the frown lines that appear between the eyebrows. When those muscles contract, they draw the brows together over the bridge of the nose. As skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated frowning and squinting can result in those moderate to severe lines between your brows.

The cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name BOTOXc, is a popular, non-surgical treatment that temporarily reduces or eliminates frown lines, forehead creases, and crow's feet near the eyes. BOTOX effects are not permanent, but usually last about 3 to 6 months. It may also be used for lines around the lips and on the chin. If you should decide not to continue treatments, the treated area will eventually return to its pretreatment appearance.

A BOTOX treatment—just a few tiny injections—takes about 10 minutes, and within days, you'll notice a dramatic improvement in the appearance of the fine lines and wrinkles. No anesthesia required. No surgery. No recovery. And BOTOX is safe, widely tested, and approved by the FDA. It is also the most popular cosmetic procedure performed in the U.S.

BOTOX  for Severe Underarm Sweating

Most commonly known as a cosmetic treatment for facial lines, creases and wrinkles, BOTOX® (botulinum toxin) has also been found to be an effective remedy for alleviating excessive underarm perspiration when topical agents don't work.

BOTOX® can control this condition, clinically known as hyperhidrosis, by temporarily blocking chemical signals from the nerves that normally stimulate the sweat glands.

A treatment takes only a few minutes and is administered under the arm via a series of small injections. The number of treatments required will depend on the doctor's assessment of your condition.

You should notice a significant reduction in underarm sweating within one to four weeks—or, quite possibly, even sooner—and the results should last for approximately six months before another treatment is needed.

Just like in cosmetic applications, BOTOX® for severe underarm sweating is FDA-approved.
