BOTOX® Cosmetic for Wrinkles

About

  • The first and only FDA-appr oved treatment to temporarily improve moderate to severe lateral canthal lines (crow’s feet) and glabellar lines (frown lines) in adult patients. Other common areas injected include horizontal forehead lines, bunny lines, perioral wrinkles, dimpled chin, marionette lines, and neck cords .
  • Smiling, frowning, squinting and even chewing - basically any facial movement can eventually lead to one of the most common signs of aging: wrinkles. They can make you appear tired or even angry when you are not. One of the quickest and safest remedies to remove wrinkles is an injection of BOTOX®.
  • BOTOX® can be combined with other cosmetic skin procedures such as chemical peels, dermal fillers or microdermabrasion to further improve your results. This combination of therapies can even help to prevent the formation of new lines and wrinkles.

Frequently Asked Questions

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

When will I see results?

  • You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Does BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment hurt?

  • Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. We may use ice to numb the treatment area.

How long is the recovery time after treatment?

  • After your treatment, you can resume your day.
  • General post treatment instructions: Ice area for 10-15minutes. No makeup for 12 hours. No exercising or straining for 3-4hours. Do not massage the area immediately post treatment.
