How Botox works
The active ingredient in Botox is Botulinum toxin A, which works by temporarily weakening the muscles in the treatment area to prevent those muscles from contracting and forming wrinkles. The results typically last approximately three to four months. With touch-up treatments, you can maintain your great results and continue to prevent the formation of deep lines and wrinkles on your face.

- Forehead lines
