Botox® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to temporarily soften frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines in adults. Made up of botulism toxin type A, it works by temporarily reducing the underlying muscle activity that causes dynamic wrinkles in the forehead and upper face.
- Forehead lines.
- Crow’s feet.
- Glabellar lines (frown lines).
- A bumpy appearance to the chin.
- The corners of the mouth.
Adults 18 years and older who wish to smooth our stubborn dynamic lines and wrinkles can often benefit from Botox® Cosmetic. However, individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a history of severe allergies or keloid scarring, or who have a skin infection at the planned treatment site should not receive Botox®. To determine if you are a good candidate for this treatment, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
Prior to your treatment, you will need to schedule a consultation appointment at our office. During this visit, we will evaluate your area of concern and review your medical history to ensure that you are a good candidate.
During your Botox® treatment, your injector will first cleanse your skin and determine where the injections will go. Next, the Botox® will be artfully injected into the determined areas using a very fine needle. Treatment should not be painful and is usually described as just feeling like a pinch. The entire process usually takes 15-30 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated.
Following your Botox® Cosmetic treatment, you may experience some temporary side effects such as mild redness, swelling, or bruising. There is no downtime required after your Botox® treatment, which means you can return to your daily routine right away. Patients may begin to notice results within 24-48 hours for moderate to severe lines, with full results seen within 30 days. Botox® can last for 3-6 months before another treatment is required.
