What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
It is the first and only FDA-approved product to temporarily improve both moderate to severe frown lines (11's) between brows and crows feet lines around the sides of the eyes.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
It 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 doctor will inject these muscles with BOTOX Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You'll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
What causes frown lines between the brows?
The lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. When powerful muscles between the brows contract, they draw the brows together, causing the skin to fold or furrow. As skin becomes less elastic with age, those folds or furrows result in stubborn lines also known as the 11's.
What are the common side effects?
The most common side effects following injection include temporary eyelid droop and nausea. Localized pain, infection, inflammation, tenderness, swelling, redness, and/or bleeding/bruising may be associated with the injection.
Will I still be able to make facial expressions?
Although you may see a marked improvement, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic does not make you look like you’ve “had work done.” The muscle activity that causes frown lines is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
How soon will I see a difference?
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment, and the appearance of the area between your brows may continue to improve for up to a week.
