BOTOX

Overview

With BOTOX® Cosmetic, watch your crow’s feet, wrinkles, laugh lines, and neck bands disappear! BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved prescription medicine that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines and wrinkles in the face.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is derived from nature. It is composed of small amounts of botulinum toxin protein in its purest form, which is cultivated from the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. Although the word toxin is in its name, it is completely safe for cosmetic use. When injected into the muscles, BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks the nerve impulses to the injected muscles, reducing muscle activity and giving the face a smooth appearance. To achieve sustained optimum results, BOTOX® Cosmetic will need to be repeated every several months.

What to Expect

Often referred to as a “lunchtime” procedure, BOTOX® Cosmetic takes just minutes to administer, allowing you to return to your regular schedule. Some patients have reported the injections feel like a pinch. Ice may be used to numb the area or your specialist may use a topical numbing cream prior to treatment. The best results are visible in four days and the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic may last up to three to six months.

Contrary to belief, you will still look like yourself after BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered. It is a technique-sensitive treatment, and when you are treated by a licensed, trained medical expert in facial anatomy, you will not lose your ability to show facial expressions.
