You’ve probably heard of BOTOX® Cosmetic but did you know:
It’s the first and only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily smooth moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a one-of-a-kind formulation—there’s nothing exactly like it.
So if you’re bothered by those deepening lines and have thoughts about treatment to temporarily reduce them, BOTOX may be right for you.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
Some patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
WILL MY FACE LOOK OVERDONE OR UNNATURAL?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust BOTOX® Cosmetic to deliver subtle results when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
DO I NEED TO BE OVER 40 YEARS OF AGE BEFORE GETTING BOTOX?
It's not your age that determines when BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you, it's the severity of your lines. Everyone's lines form differently. The timing can be influenced by a combination of factors from cellular changes that may occur over time, to reduction of collagen, to genetic factors, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment. Whenever your lines start to bother you, come speak to one of our physicians. They can help you determine if treatment is right for you.
HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE?
The actual injection process takes 10 minutes. Our physicians will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Treatment requires minimal downtime so you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
WILL I SEE RESULTS QUICKLY? HOW LONG DO TREATMENT EFFECTS LAST?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.
