Learning About Botox®

About BOTOX® Cosmetic Injections

Ever wondered what you can do to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles on your face and neck? BOTOX® Cosmetic works by relaxing the muscles that cause contractions under the skin’s surface. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smoothes out, and the frown lines between your brows begin to fade.

Proven. Simple. Effective.

Ten minutes–a few tiny injections–and within days there’s a noticeable improvement. There’s no recovery or downtime and minimal discomfort. You can even receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment on your lunch break!

What can BOTOX® Cosmetic treat?

BOTOX® Cosmetic can be especially beneficial for treating frown lines, forehead wrinkles, “crow’s feet”, lip lines, and other facial wrinkles.

How long will BOTOX® Cosmetic last?

Results last up to four months, though individual results may vary.

Who is a suitable patient for BOTOX® Cosmetic injections?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is suitable for men or women of all ethnicities who would like their faces to look younger and are free of neurological or muscle tissue disorders.

Just what is BOTOX® Cosmetic? Is it FDA approved?

Yes, BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA approved since 2002 and has since treated one million people. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein. It is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that is used to temporarily reduce frown lines between the brows and other facial wrinkles in patients 18 to 65 years of age.

What side effects may I experience?

Patients with neurological disorders such as ALS, Myasthenia Gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects. The most common side effects include temporary headache, flu-like syndrome, temporary droopy eyelid and nausea. Other side effects include pain and redness where the medicine is injected, pain in the face, and muscle weakness. These effects generally occur within the first week and usually go away on their own.

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic compare to other options?

Compared to other aesthetic treatment options, BOTOX® Cosmetic is relatively inexpensive. According to a survey by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it’s one of the least costly facial aesthetic procedures. And when you consider the difference it can make in the appearance of the significant frown lines between your brows, you may find BOTOX® Cosmetic to be a great way to invest in yourself.
