Botox

WHAT EXACTLY IS BOTOX® COSMETIC?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a natural, purified protein, which in very low doses relaxes the overactive muscles that cause frown lines to form. Treatment is simple and nonsurgical and smooths the deep, persistent lines between your brows that developed over time.


IS IT SAFE?

BOTOX®, which has been safely used to treat a variety of conditions for more than 10 years, is now FDA-approved as BOTOX® Cosmetic for the temporary treatment of frown lines in people aged 18 to 65.


HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?

Results last about 4 months, after which lines gradually revert to their pretreatment appearance.


WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM A BOTOX® COSMETIC TREATMENT?

Your doctor will determine exactly where to administer several tiny injections to achieve the best results. No anesthesia is required, although he or she may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. The entire treatment takes approximately 10 minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief-most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. Most people return to work or normal activity immediately.

Within days, you'll see a marked improvement, which may continue to improve for as long as a week and should last up to 4 months.

The most common side effects, if they occur, are headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary eyelid droop, and nausea. BOTOX® Cosmetic should not be used if there is an infection at the injection site.
