Botox Cosmetic is a form of botulinum toxin. This injectable filler is the only one that’s been approved by the FDA to improve the appearance of crow’s feet and frown lines. Botox at Ogden Clinic works by blocking signals from your nerves to your muscles, and the muscle that’s been injected cannot contract, softening and relaxing wrinkles. Not only is it approved to work on both frown lines and crow’s feet, it can also be used to treat forehead lines.
