What is BOTOX ® ?

BOTOX® 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 that can sometimes lead to headaches.


Derived from sources that exist in nature

BOTOX® contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX®. There have been no studies to support that other products are Unit-to-Unit equivalent to BOTOX®


A treatment experienced by millions of people

Approximately 10.9 million vials of BOTOX®  have been sold in the United States since 2002, and millions of people have already made BOTOX®  a part of what they do for themselves. Today, BOTOX® is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.† 


WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WITH TREATMENT?

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.

 

The actual injection process takes about10 minutes

Your provider 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.


Return to your daily routine

Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your provider’s office

 

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.
