BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary). BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.

Treatment sessions typically take about 10 to 20 minutes, the length of a treatment session can vary depending on the number of injections needed to achieve desired results. Multiple treatment sessions may be necessary to achieve your aesthetic goals. A customized treatment plan will be developed during your initial consultation, but it is important for patients to be realistic in their cosmetic goals.
There is no downtime or recovery period associated with BOTOX® injections, patients are often able to work injection sessions into their lunch hour. Patients are able to immediately return to their normal activities following an injection session. Some patients may experience some temporary side effects, including tenderness, swelling, bruising, and pain or discomfort at the injection site. These side effects are usually mild and typically subside within a few days of an injection session.
Patients may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours of treatment. The neurotoxin in BOTOX® works to reduce the muscle activity of the treated area in the week following an injection session, and the full results can be seen within one month of the treatment. Results typically last about three to four months. Results may vary depending on the condition of the treated area prior to treatment. Wrinkles in the treated area will gradually return to their pre-treated state if you should choose to discontinue BOTOX® treatments.
