BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines. It is a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form. FACE believes in relaxing the muscle and not “freezing” it, as we believe a natural look and some movement is most beautiful!
BOTOX® Cosmetic can be injected in between the eyebrows (known as the 1s, 11s, or 111s), the forehead, and crow’s feet. In the industry, it can also be used off-label around the mouth area. Recently, BOTOX® Cosmetic has received FDA approval for migraines. Another non-cosmetic use of BOTOX® is for Hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating).
You may be a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic if you have lines or wrinkles between your eyebrows, on your forehead or near the sides of your eyes (crow’s feet). Your provider will speak with you about your injectable options to determine if BOTOX® Cosmetic is the best option for you.
The level of pain associated with this procedure is minimal, due to the thinness of the needle used for injections. Some may describe it as being similar to a bee sting, while others feel nothing at all. If necessary, a topical numbing cream can be applied to lessen any discomfort. We recommend you not take any blood thinners approximately 48 hours prior to treatment to avoid bruising.
Patients who receive BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can expect to see a reduction in their fine lines and wrinkles. Results can occur as soon as 2-3 days, however, most patients will notice changes by 7 days. Typically, BOTOX® Cosmetic lasts for approximately 3-6 months.
Typical side effects include temporary swelling, soreness, and redness (which all usually resolve within minutes) at the injection site, and headache within 24 hours following treatment. We suggest you wait a day after your treatment before exercising.
