About BOTOX® Cosmetic
Get rid of pesky brow lines and forehead wrinkles with BOTOX® Cosmetic. Just one quick, nonsurgical treatment can erase lines left by aging and time. This incredible facial injectable can restore a smooth forehead, brow, and eye area.
Any healthy adult with facial wrinkles may be a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic. Candidates have moderate to severe lines and wrinkles around the eyes, forehead, and brows. These lines may be newly forming or permanently etched in over time. Most candidates are in their 30s, 40s, or 50s; individuals older than this may be better candidates for facelift surgery.
BOTOX® Cosmetic can smooth out and eliminate wrinkles in the upper face. Specifically, it may be used to correct horizontal forehead lines, wrinkles between the brows (brow furrows), wrinkles around the brows, and wrinkles at the outer corners of the eyes (crow’s feet).
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a nonsurgical treatment administered by injection. As an in-office treatment, it takes only 10 to 15 minutes to perform. Your surgeon will carefully inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into your desired treatment areas so that it can smooth out wrinkles and fine lines.
After the Procedure
After receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments, patients can immediately resume their normal daily activities. Some patients may experience a temporary minor bruising, discomfort, or inflammation in the treated areas. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic will become noticeable within 3 to 5 days after treatment.
Frequently Asked Questions
Many wrinkles in the upper face are caused by tiny muscle movements, which over time gradually etch lines into the skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic counteracts these effects by slowing or stopping small facial muscle contractions. For example, when injected between the eyebrows, BOTOX® Cosmetic minimizes the movement of the muscles that cause brow furrows, resulting in a wrinkle-free brow line even when you frown. Similarly, when injected at the outer corners of the eyes, BOTOX® Cosmetic gets rid of crow’s feet wrinkles that form due to smiling.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is not intended for use on wrinkles around the mouth and nose because these are caused by age-related tissue sagging and gravity, not muscle movements. Dermal fillers are the recommended treatment for lower face wrinkles.
When administered by a trained professional on the correct areas of the face, BOTOX® Cosmetic results will look natural and aesthetically pleasing.
BOTOX® Cosmetic results may last from 3 to 6 months. This treatment is best administered as part of a maintenance plan. With regular treatments approximately every 4 months, patients can enjoy a smooth, wrinkle-free appearance for many years.
