Sometimes, there is a stigma about BOTOX® Cosmetic. Many people think only wealthy people, older people, or celebrities receive the injections, but that is not the case. Men and women over the age of 18 often turn to BOTOX® Cosmetic to help slow down the effects of aging in the face as well as for other needs associated with the body. BOTOX® Cosmetic is not something to hide or be ashamed of, but rather, it is something that can help you feel comfortable and confident in your own skin as you begin to age.
BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily delays the signs of aging in men and women. This injectable neurotoxin is injected into the predetermined treatment areas on the face.
