Only BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines look better in adults.
What is Botox® Cosmetic?
Botox Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow's feet in adults.
How does Botox work?
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It's not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. When you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow's feet.
Botox® Cosmetic works beneath the skin's surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow's feet to form over time.
Your doctor will inject Botox® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow's feet lines temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.
When will I see results from Botox?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours with the maximum effect visible at 30 days. Results may vary.
Does Botox hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with Botox® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your provider may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
Will Botox® Cosmetic make me look fake?
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. It is important to talk to your provider about the results you want from treatment as well as any precautions and risks from the procedure.
How long Botox treatment take?
Your doctor will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.
After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime and your doctor may give you specific aftercare instructions.
