BOTOX® Cosmetic FAQs
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.
How long will the procedure take?
The actual injection process of BOTOX® Cosmetic takes only 10 to 15 minutes, depending on your treatment goals. Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.
Does a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
How long before I see results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.
How long will results last from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
Results may last 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.
How long is recovery from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is customized to your goals and needs. When you meet with your specialist, he or she will determine the appropriate treatment for any areas you wish to address, including moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. Remember, only BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved to treat all three of these areas.
