What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries.* BOTOX® Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. Gradually those muscles will begin to relax and you will notice a softening of the lines & wrinkles in the treated area.
Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look like I’ve had work done?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. When treated by a licensed, trained, medical expert in facial anatomy, you should not lose the ability to make normal facial expressions. It is important for you to communicate your desired result so that your unique outcome meets your expectations.
Does BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment hurt?
There is virtually no discomfort and most patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a slight pinch. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream or the use of ice before administering your treatment.
How quickly will I see a result and how long will it last?
For most patients results can be seen in as little as 3-5 days with results lasting approximately 3-4 months. Muscle contractions will return to the same as they were prior to treatment unless retreated.
