BOTOX® Cosmetic is a cosmetic treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, which provides a nonsurgical option for those seeking an improved appearance of facial skin.
It is a purified protein that reduces activity by the muscles on the face, reducing the appearance of frown lines on the forehead, around the eyes, and between the brows. BOTOX® Cosmetic is sometimes used as a preventative measure for reducing the look of lines and wrinkles as well.
Facial muscles are highly active and contract each time we show an expression. Over time, this contraction of the muscles results in the formation of lines and wrinkles, which are factors of aging skin. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a nonsurgical option for smoothing lines and wrinkles on the face. It relaxes the facial muscles that cause deepening lines over time. The relaxed facial muscles reduce the activity of the muscles in the area where administered, leaving a smooth, youthful appearance. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a popular option for those who are noticing wrinkles forming on their face.

Results vary for each client, but the effects of BOTOX® treatments can potentially last from 3-4 months. A BOTOX® Cosmetic session can take 15-20 minutes, and since treatments are nonsurgical, there is usually no downtime associated with BOTOX® treatments. Post-treatment, it can take as few as 3 days or up to 2 weeks for BOTOX® Cosmetic to fully penetrate the facial muscles, and for results to show*.
Since BOTOX® is nonsurgical, there is no anesthesia required, however topical anesthetic cream may be applied to numb the application area. Most clients experience minimal discomfort during injection and have a relatively pain-free experience. For some, there may be minor bruising at injection sites. Your doctor will go through post-treatment guidelines with you at your treatment session.
Every client is different, so there is no definitive ideal age for BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments. Some people decide to begin BOTOX® Cosmetic in their 20s as a preventative measure for the forming of wrinkles. Clients are typically 30 years and older, because this is when we see the collagen in the skin begin to break down, and wrinkles form more easily. BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the facial muscles, which helps prevent expression lines from becoming embedded in the skin, forming wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an option for anyone seeking to reduce or prevent the lasting effects of expression lines and wrinkles.
