BOTOX® targets one of the underlying causes of wrinkles, which is caused by repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Dr. Rosner injects these muscles with BOTOX® to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will notice a visible smoothing of your crow's feet lines, forehead wrinkles, and the frown lines between your brows.


Crow's feet lines are caused primarily by repeated contractions of the orbicularis oculi muscle that encircles the eye. The orbicularis oculi muscles are responsible for blinking and eyelid closure.

Glabellar lines are caused by repeated muscle contractions of the corrugator and orbicularis oculi muscles medially and the procerus and depressor supercilii inferiorly, creating the appearance of a furrowed brow.

Is Botox best option for wrinkles?

Facial wrinkles seem to be an inevitable part of the aging process. As we age, our facial muscle tone increases while our collagen metabolism decreases. Since collagen is a part of the dermis, this reduction results in wrinkles. While some people don't mind wrinkles and don't have a desire to diminish their appearance, most people want to get rid of them.

If you are one of those people, you have probably heard of Botox. When wrinkles develop, it is often caused by facial muscle becoming too tight and malformed as a result of repeated facial expressions. Botox helps relax these muscles and puts them in a state of paralysis, which smooths them out. Another great thing to consider about Botox is that it can easily be combined with other treatments to give you the best results possible.

How safe is Botox for wrinkles?

Botox can be dangerous if it isn't administered correctly, so it's important that you receive these injections from medical professionals. It is FDA-approved to temporarily smooth "frown lines," or the lines between your eyebrows that often make us look tired, unhappy, or even angry. Botox is intimidating to a lot of people, mainly because it is a drug made from a neurotoxin made by the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, also called botulinum toxin. But it is perfectly safe, again, as long as it's made and injected by a licensed professional.

How long does Botox last for eye and forehead wrinkles?

The effects of Botox generally last up to three months and as soon as you noticed that your wrinkles are returning, you can get another Botox injection. There is no defined limit to the number of injections you can have, though it is important to note that the body's immune system is capable of developing antibodies to the Botox molecule, which can make it ineffective over time.
