How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
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. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into these muscles to temporarily reduce muscle activity. After an injection, you will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.
When will I see results?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.
Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look like I’ve had work done?
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 us about the results you want from treatment.
Does BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. We may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, we may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
Do men receive BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?
Yes. BOTOX® Cosmetic has also been clinically evaluated in male patients. In clinical studies for moderate to severe frown lines, 17.5% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic were men.5 In the clinical studies for moderate to severe crow’s feet, male patients comprised approximately 12% of patients treated with BOTOX® Cosmetic.6,7
Am I a Good Candidate for BOTOX®?
BOTOX® is an excellent option for those looking to restore a youthful look, without having to undergo plastic surgery. Additionally, BOTOX® can treat excessive underarm sweating (hyperhidrosis).
BOTOX® Cosmetic is also FDA-approved for severe underarm sweating that is not adequately managed with topical agents. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment helps control this condition by temporarily blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate the sweat glands. When the sweat glands don’t receive chemical signals, the severe sweating stops.
