Botulinum Toxin A - BOTOX® Cosmetic


BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, crow’s feet and forehead expression lines in adults. Our fine lines and wrinkles are caused by the aging process and everyday movement of our facial muscles. BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA approved and works by relaxing involved facial muscles and smoothing out the skin to diminish the appearance of unwanted fine lines and wrinkles.
The areas around our eyes, forehead and mouth are our most expressive areas of the face and, therefore, most prone to wrinkles and unwanted expression lines. The most common area expression lines occur is the crow’s feet around the eyes. BOTOX® Cosmetic is perfect for treating other areas such as forehead lines, creases between your eyes/eyebrows called the glabella region, crow’s feet and gently lifting the brows.
Call us today to schedule your free consultation so we can help you determine the best treatment for your BOTOX® Cosmetic experience.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Frequently Asked Questions



Q: How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

A: 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 specialist 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.

Q: Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look like I’ve had work done?

A: 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. It is important to talk to your specialist about the results you want from treatment.

Q: Does BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment hurt?

A: Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Most patients do not require numbing medication; however, for comfort, your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area prior to injection. If you are concerned about discomfort, ask your specialist about applying a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

Q: How long does the treatment take?

A: Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.

Q: What is the average treatment cost?

A: Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment—look for someone who is licensed and trained and has experience treating patients with BOTOX® Cosmetic. Be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX® Cosmetic—if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. It is more important to find an experienced specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.

Q: When will I see results?

A: You may begin to notice results within 2-5 days for moderate to severe frown lines. You will notice full results at 14 days, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Q: How long is the recovery time after treatment?

A: After your treatment, you can resume your day. There is minimal downtime and your specialist may give you specific aftercare instructions.
