What Is Botox Cosmetic
BOTOX Cosmetic is a purified protein administered in a simple, nonsurgical procedure that temporarily improves the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines.
How Does Botox Work?
Lines and wrinkles are caused by overactive facial muscles. BOTOX Cosmetic is intramuscular, blocking the chemicals that cause facial muscles to contract, thereby relaxing them. BOTOX Cosmetic is the only product of its kind that affects the muscles that cause moderate to severe frown lines.
What is the Botox treatment like?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a quick and minimally invasive procedure. Your medical provider makes a few tiny injections into the muscles that cause moderate to severe lines and creases. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes, and there is no downtime afterwards.
How soon will I see a difference with Botox? What kind of results can I expect?
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. Your appearance may continue to improve for up to fourteen days. By day 30 in a clinical study, 89% of patients judged the severity of their frown lines between their brows as moderate or better. Your own results may vary-be sure to talk to your medical provider about what you can expect. Visible results have been shown to last up to 4 months, and after that you may be ready to return for a follow-up treatment. Go to the BOTOX® web site to see before and after pictures
