BOTOX Cosmetic® is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows, the horizontal lines that run across the forehead and the crow’s feet around the outer eyes.

BOTOX Cosmetic® works by relaxing the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. Improvement may begin within 24-48 hours and your results may increase during the first week or two after treatment. Results can last for up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.

Botox Cosmetic® treatments are often used at the same time as dermal fillers or other cosmetic procedures to achieve a refreshed and rejuvenated look. For example, Botox Cosmetic® treatments may be used on wrinkles at the outside corners of the eyes, while dermal fillers may be better used to restore lost volume in the cheeks or lips and to treat smile lines. Botox Cosmetic® can still be effectively used after plastic surgery or other treatments.

A Botox Cosmetic® treatment is quick; it usually takes just 10 to 15 minutes. Results may last longer with repeated treatments. The needle used in these injections is finer than a strand of hair and causes very little if any discomfort and there is no downtime afterwards. You could go out to dinner the same night, looking a little younger than you did that morning!

 

Botox Cosmetic® FAQ

Who should administer BOTOX COSMETIC®?
Botox Cosmetic® is a prescribed medication and needs to be administered through a qualified and knowledgeable professional. The physician/nurse treating you is an important aspect of your care as it’s their expertise that will help ensure you get the results you are looking for.

Have you already been treated with BOTOX Cosmetic®?
If you are pleased with your previous BOTOX Cosmetic® results, you may want to consider a regular treatment plan to help maintain them. Don’t forget that you can receive injections every 3 to 4 months as long as you don’t have any serious allergic reactions or other significant side effects.

Are there any side effects?
Side effects associated with the injection may include localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising.

Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic® will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.

What will happen if I choose not to continue treatments?
If you do not continue treatments, the lines treated will gradually return to the way they looked before treatment.
