No matter how well taken care of or pampered skin is, everyone eventually develops wrinkles. Fortunately, Dr. Alexander provides a number of options to erase the lines that accompany aging. BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the easiest options. Botox is an extremely quick approach to soften or remove the natural wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyes, and at the sides of the eyes – commonly referred to as crow’s feet.
What is BOTOX®?
Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe lines in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time. It is a purified protein toxin that is derived from a specific form of bacteria. It was originally utilized as a remedy for neck and facial spasms, but in the last decade it has been used effectively to remove facial wrinkles.

Why do the vertical lines happen?
These lines form after years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning— and can remain even when your muscles aren’t moving.
Over time, repeated muscle contractions between your brows result in moderate to severe frown lines.
About the Botox Procedure
A few tiny injections are administered directly into the muscles that cause moderate to severe frown lines between the brows (see photo). Often called a lunchtime procedure, there is minimal downtime or recovery. Dr. Richard Alexander knows precisely how to inject BOTOX® Cosmetic for best results.
How BOTOX works
With a few tiny injections, BOTOX® Cosmetic reduces the muscle activity that causes those lines to form.
Treating wrinkles with Botox: What are my 1’s 11’s and 111’s?
Your 1’s, 11’s, or 111’s are those moderate to severe vertical lines between your brows. Whether you have one moderate to severe frown line (1’s), or two (11’s), or even three (111’s), the cause is actually the same.
