Contact Dermatitis:

Allergic Contact Dermatitis is caused by a reaction to substances called allergens that come into contact with your skin. In some people these allergens can cause redness, itching and blisters.

Botox® cosmetic Botox® Cosmetic is  FDA approved treatment for the temporary reduction of moderate or severe frown lines between the brows in patients 18 - 65 years of age. The lines that appear between your brows actually result from from muscle movement and the passage of time.

With less movement, the skin surface gradually smoothes out and the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows begin to fade. The treatment with Botox® cosmetic is the only treatment of its type approved by the FDA for this use. The treatment is minimally invasive and nonsurgical. It requires no recovery time and causes little discomfort.
