What is Botox ®?
BOTOX ® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults. BOTOX Cosmetic is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments and is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries.* BOTOX Cosmetic has a record of experience that aesthetic specialists know and trust. And, the safety and efficacy of BOTOX Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
How Does Botox Work?
BOTOX ® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
What Should You Expect with Your Botox Treatment?
- You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
Cost considerations: Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment—look for someone who is licensed and trained and has experience treating patients with BOTOX Cosmetic. It is more important to find an experienced specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
- Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX Cosmetic feels like a pinch
- The actual injection process takes about10 minutes: Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.
You’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet BOTOX ® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy.
Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
