Botox FAQ

What is Botox Cosmetic

Botox Cosmetic is the #1 selling treatment of its kind:

  • It’s the first and only treatment FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults.
  • A quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime
  • You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines
  • It delivers predictable, subtle results, so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial line

How does Botox Cosmetic work?

Botox Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow's feet and forehead lines- the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with Botox Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow's feet lines and your forehead lines.

When will I see results?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.

What should I expect? Does treatment hurt?

Some patient report that being injected with Botox Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist can instead apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
