A million people have been treated with BOTOX ® Cosmetic since its FDA approval in 2002.
BOTOX ® Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved treatment for the temporary reduction of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, in patients 18 to 65 years of age. Isn’t it time you considered it, too?
Ten minutes – a few tiny injections – and within days there’s a noticeable improvement. There’s no recovery or downtime. You can even receive BOTOX ® Cosmetic treatment on your lunch break and results last up to four months.
Individual results may vary.
Read on to find out how some physicians answer patients’ commonly asked questions about BOTOX ® Cosmetic, then talk to one of the doctors at the Center for Plastic Surgery to decide if BOTOX ® Cosmetic is right for you.
The lines that appear between your brows are the result of muscle movement and the passage of time.
Two muscles are largely responsible for frown lines between the brows; when those muscles contract, they draw the brows together and, as skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated frowning can result in those moderate-to-severe lines between your brows.
BOTOX ® Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses, reducing movement of those muscles. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smooths out, and the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows begin to fade.
Unretouched clinical photos taken while frowning before and 30 days after treatment with BOTOX ® Cosmetic. In clinical trials, 89% of patients rated improvement in frown lines between their brows as moderate or better at day 30. Individual results may vary.
BOTOX ® Cosmetic is a purified protein. It is a nonsurgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in patients 18 to 65 years of age. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX ® Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections, directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows.
BOTOX ® Cosmetic is the only treatment of its type approved by the FDA for this use. The treatment is minimally invasive, and nonsurgical. It requires no recovery time and causes little discomfort.
BOTOX ® Cosmetic is a quick and minimally invasive treatment. Your doctor makes a few tiny injections into the muscles that cause moderate to severe frown lines between your brows.
Your doctor will determine exactly where to administer the injections to achieve the best results. No anesthesia is
required, although he or she may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. The entire procedure takes approximately ten minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief – most patients compare the sensation to a mosquito bite. You may resume normal activity immediately.
Any authorized healthcare professional can administer BOTOX ® Cosmetic, but dermatologists, plastic surgeons, ophthalmologists, otolaryngologists or other cosmetic physicians are generally more experienced. Your physician can help you decide if BOTOX ® Cosmetic is right for you.
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment, however, the appearance of the area between your brows may continue to improve for up to a week.
By day 30 in a patient clinical study, 89% of patients judged the severity of their frown lines between their brows as moderate or better.
Visible results can last up to four months. After that, you may be ready to return for a follow-up treatment.
Patients with neurological disorders such as ALS, Myasthenia Gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects. The most common side effects include headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary eyelid drooping and nausea.
Other side effects include pain and redness where the medicine is injected, pain in the face and muscle weakness.
These effects generally occur within the first week and usually go away on their own.
Your own results may vary – be sure to talk to your doctor about what to expect.
The effects of each treatment can last up to four months – be sure to schedule your follow-up treatments in advance.
If you decide not to continue with BOTOX ® Cosmetic, the area between your brows will eventually go back to its pre-treatment appearance.
