BOTOX® Cosmetic


BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA approved treatment that is used to temporarily improve the appearance of dynamic wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles form as a result of repeated facial movements such as smiling, squinting, and frowning. These lines and wrinkles can give off a false appearance to anyone you meet, and they may think you are angry or tired when you are feeling completely fine. This treatment is preventative, meaning these wrinkles do not form in the deeper, harder-to-treat areas as long as repeat treatments are maintained. BOTOX® Cosmetic can provide you with a refreshed, youthful facial aesthetic.



Ideal candidates for BOTOX® Cosmetic are men and women who experience crow’s feet, frown lines between the brows, forehead lines, lip lines, and neck bands. Candidates must be in good overall health and have realistic expectations of the results provided.


How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works

BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the predetermined facial muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles to form. This process allows them to completely relax and soften, temporarily, for about three to four months. This treatment only takes about 15 minutes and can easily fit into anyone’s busy schedule during a lunch break, after work, or before school pick up.



Although there is no downtime associated with this treatment, patients should not exercise for 24 hours after receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic. Keeping your head elevated for at least four hours after the treatment and avoiding rubbing or touching the treatment area will allow for the substance to disperse properly for more consistent results.



Most patients start to see results from their treatment within three to five days. Full BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment results can take up to 14 days. Once noticeable, patients will be able to enjoy smoother, younger-looking skin in the treated area. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a cosmetic treatment that needs to be scheduled regularly in order to maintain desired results.
