When looking for a cosmetic treatment, people generally trust a recognizable brand with a strong reputation for delivering exceptional results. Botox® is one of those trustworthy cosmetic brands we are all familiar with and know works. It treats many aesthetic concerns related to aging and can be injected into almost any area of the face. It specifically reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, smile lines, frown lines, forehead creases, and other fine lines or wrinkles. What people love the most about Botox® is that it is simple, quick, and cost-effective.

Areas of Concern:

How many injections will I receive?

Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is customized to your goals and needs. When you meet with your specialist, he or she will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address, including moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. Remember, only BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved to treat all three of these areas.

For the crow’s feet area: Your specialist will inject 3 areas of the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This will be repeated on the muscle that frames the other eye.

For the frown lines area: Your specialist will administer 5 injections into the muscles between your brows and in your forehead.

For the forehead lines area: Your specialist will administer 5 injections into a muscle in your forehead.

When will I see results?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.

How long is the recovery time after treatment?

Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.

What should I expect? Does treatment hurt?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist can instead apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

How much time does treatment take?

The injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.

How Botox® Works?

BOTOX® Cosmetic has a unique formulation designed to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe lines, creases, folds, and wrinkles in adults. It uses neurotoxins to temporarily relax overworked facial muscles that cause the severe lines the patient has been experiencing. The neurotoxins used in Botox® can also help reduce migraines and jaw pain.
