BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults.
Derived From Naturally Occurring Sources
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum.
Extensively Studied And Tested
BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved for cosmetic use in 78 countries. The safety and efficacy of BOTOX®Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in 417 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic addresses one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet: the repeated muscle contractions used to frown and squint. A BOTOX® Cosmetic injection temporarily reduces muscle activity which may have a visible smoothing effect on crow’s feet and frown lines between the brows.
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines. These results may last up to 4 months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment often requires minimal downtime or recovery. Some patients are able to go about their normal routines immediately after their treatment.
How It Feels
Some patients describe a pinching sensation during the injection.
Once we have discussed your treatment goals and performed a facial analysis, the injection process usually takes approximately 10 minutes.
