What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your provider will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes that can occur over time, reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet.
What Can I Expect with BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatments?
- You will notice real, noticeable 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.
- Some patient’s report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch – Dr. Lisa Mallett may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
- The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes – Dr. Mallett will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.
- You’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet – 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.
