BOTOX Cosmetic Overview

 

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

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.
Derived from sources that exist in nature
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX® Cosmetic.
How it works
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes
of crow’s feet and frown lines: muscle contractions
from squinting and frowning. BOTOX® Cosmetic
temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll
begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.

What Should I Expect?

Real, noticeable results

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.
The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes
Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your 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.
Return to your daily routine
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.
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.
