First off, What Exactly is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
To put it simply, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medication injected into the facial muscles to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is FDA-approved for use in adults who are seeking a temporary solution for moderate to severe wrinkles on the forehead, between the eyebrows, and around the eyes. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical treatment requiring minimal downtime – making it easy to administer and recover from!

Unlike surgical procedures, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical treatment that requires minimal downtime. Patients can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
- It offers natural-looking results!
BOTOX® Cosmetic provides natural-looking results that do not appear overdone or artificial. It simply relaxes the muscles, resulting in a more refreshed and youthful appearance.
- It offers long-lasting results!
The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic can last for up to four months, depending on the individual. With regular treatments, patients can maintain their results for longer periods of time.
- It is safe and FDA-approved! BOTOX® Cosmetic is a safe and FDA-approved treatment that has been used for decades to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
Let’s Talk About Results
BOTOX® Cosmetic results tend to appear gradually. After your treatment, you will see some results almost immediately, as the treatment begins to relax the facial muscles responsible for certain wrinkles, like crow’s feet and frown lines. Though every patient is different, on average, it takes only two weeks to see the full results of an injection course!
Results from these injections will last approximately 3-4 months, depending on the patient. Touch-up treatments may also be performed to increase the longevity of the results. Further, many patients find that regular treatments with BOTOX® Cosmetic further improve results due to increased muscle memory in the treatment area.
