BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical injectable that minimizes moderate to severe wrinkles in the upper face. The gradual aging process and genetics can be responsible for the formation of lines, wrinkles, and deep creases on the forehead, brow, and eye area. These wrinkles perpetuate an aged appearance and can create the impression that you are sad, tired, angry, or upset. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can help smooth out the upper face so you look more youthful, refreshed, and welcoming.

Getting BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatments
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are administered in a short, 20-minute session. Made from botulinum toxin type A, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a neuromodulator that temporarily paralyzes muscle movement. During the treatment, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be injected into the forehead, between the brows, and around the eyes to slow the muscle contractions that create lines and wrinkles. This helps the soft tissues in the treated areas to lie flat without wrinkling or excess movement. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections have no recovery afterward, which is why the treatment is often called a “lunchtime procedure.” Patients can return to their scheduled activities and obligations immediately after their treatment.
Seeing Your Results
The full effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic may take up to one week. Because the neuromodulator inhibits muscle movement, there will be a noticeable smoothing effect on forehead wrinkles, frown lines, and crow’s feet. The neurotoxin will continue to smooth the treated area for approximately four months, at which point a touch-up treatment can help you maintain your results. Some patients who receive BOTOX® Cosmetic injections on a regular basis discover that their results seem to last longer over time. BOTOX® Cosmetic can rejuvenate the upper face with immediately noticeable results that will enhance your appearance and improve self-confidence.
