BOTOX Cosmetic, a purified form of the botulinum toxin, is injected in miniscule amounts into the appropriate muscle(s) causing it to relax, thus diminishing or eliminating:
- Crow’s feet
- Frown lines
How does it work?
BOTOX safely reduces the activity of muscles, relaxing the skin and erasing the fold-line wrinkles. This look is achieved by injecting small doses into specific muscles, which creates a natural softening of unwanted lines and wrinkles without removing your facial expressions.
Who should perform injections?
Injectable fillers and BOTOX are best administered by a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon who understands skin issues and has knowledge of molecular anatomy. If BOTOX is not injected properly, one can lose the action of muscles of expression.
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX, by Allergan, is a purified protein made from a bacterium called “clostridium botulinum Type A.” BOTOX® has been used medically and cosmetically for more than 25 years and, when used correctly, is one of the safest cosmetic treatments performed today.
What results can I expect?
You can expect BOTOX to diminish or eliminate the lines, wrinkles or furrows on your face. In the hands of a board-certified skin expert who is skilled and experienced, BOTOX can return your natural, youthful appearance.
What areas can be treated with BOTOX?
BOTOX is used to treat frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead furrows caused by muscle contraction. It can also be used to treat lines on the neck.
How many units will I need?
Although many facilities provide pricing per unit, the number of units you will need is dependent on the area you wish to effect and your muscle strength. A board-certified dermatologist with years of experience and extensive training is the best choice for customizing each individual’s needs and delivering the best results at optimum value.
How long does it take to work, and how long does it last?
BOTOX Cosmetic results become apparent in the first three to five days after treatment and in about seven days for full results. Treatments last for three to four months. For best results, three to four treatments are recommended per year. After repeated injections the results may be even longer lasting.
Does it hurt?
Most patients say BOTOX treatments are no more painful than a mosquito bite. Administered by a skilled and experienced skin doctor, the tiny injections should be quick and nearly painless!
Is it safe?
BOTOX has an excellent safety record and millions of procedures are done annually without any significant side effects. Just like any medicine, too much BOTOX is not good for you. BOTOX is safe when carefully harnessed into small, safe doses.
How should I prepare for injections?
There are no preparations needed for BOTOX treatment.
What will I look like right after treatment?
You can expect some minor, temporary swelling or redness. Ice packs can help to speed recovery from the treatment.
