Botox, one of the most popular injectable treatments is the number one cosmetic procedure in the United States, with more than 3.2 million treatments in 2006.. Botox was introduced in the late 1980s by ophthalmologists for treating optic muscle disorders. Approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2002, it has helped millions of patients get rid of nagging facial lines and wrinkles.

Dr. Oser's treatment with Botox is quick, disrupting the wrinkling process for a period of three to six months. Among its many medical uses, Botox can treat crow's feet, frown lines, and eliminate furrows in the forehead.

Botox, a toxin, disables the muscle contractions that cause wrinkles. By essentially paralyzing these muscles; the contractions are stopped, giving you a more smooth youthful appearance.
