IF YOU ARE CONSIDERING BOTOX® INJECTIONS…

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. You can treat multiple areas at the same time.

HOW IT WORKS

BOTOX® Cosmetic minimizes the pull of facial muscles which wrinkle the skin creating frown lines and crow’s feet. The skin deepens with repeated muscle contractions while frowning and squinting over the years. BOTOX® Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.

WILL YOU LOOK OVERDONE?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your provider about the results you want from treatment.

DOES THE TREATMENT HURT?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your provider may use ice or a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply an extra coat of numbing cream before administering your treatment.

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?

The treatment takes approximately 15 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery. In fact, it’s often called a lunchtime procedure.

For temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow’s feet, your doctor will inject BOTOX Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes- called the orbicularis oculi muscles.


For temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines, your doctor will inject BOTOX Cosmetic into 2 muscles- the corrugator and procerus muscles.
