Botox® Cosmetic

What is Botox® Cosmetic?

Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe from lines between the eyebrows in people aged 18-65.

The most commonly treated areas are the brow lines between the eyebrows, wrinkles on the forehead and wrinkles around the eyes in the temporal areas.

How does Botox® Cosmetic work?

It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity and results in relaxation of the muscles. This affect is temporary and can last anywhere from 3-4 months.

When will I see results from a Botox® Cosmetic treatment?

Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to 30 days, and results can last for up to 4 months. Individual results may vary.

How long does Botox® Cosmetic last?

Visible results have been shown to last up to 4 months. Your own results may vary – be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about what you can expect and when to schedule your next appointment.

Is treatment with Botox® Cosmetic painful?

Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injection, your physician may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. Most patients are in and out of the physician’s office without any downtime following Botox® Cosmetic treatment.

Side effects associated with the injection include localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, or bleeding and/or 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.
