Botox® Cosmetic

Botox® Cosmetic has a distinct formulation and is the #1 selling FDA-approved medication designed to temporarily reduce the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet, and forehead lines in adults.

What is Botox used for?

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. It can also be used to reduce the muscle activity that is responsible for bruxism- grinding of the teeth- which can result in tooth sensitivity, bone loss around the teeth, tooth mobility, tooth loss and facial pain. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.
  • Quick Treatment (10 minutes average)
  • Minimally Invasive with no downtime
  • Noticeable results within 24 to 48 hours
  • Subtle results, so you look like you with less facial lines

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.

What should i expect?

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

Side Effects

Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies, one percent of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow’s feet studies, and one percent of patients experienced brow drooping in the forehead lines studies. Other possible side effects include: dry mouth; discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; headache; neck pain; eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight and dry eyes; and allergic reactions. These are not all of the possible serious side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Please see the Important Safety Information including Boxed Warning and Medication Guide and talk to your specialist.
