BOTOX® Cosmetic is a popular non-surgical, injectable treatment able to smooth laugh lines and other facial creases and wrinkles caused by expression. Known as “dynamic wrinkles,” these wrinkles result from the repeat creasing of the skin associated with facial expressions like smiling and frowning. When injected in very small doses beneath the skin, BOTOX® relaxes the underlying muscles and smoothes the skin for a more youthful appearance.
BOTOX® is a purified form of botulinum toxin. It is commonly used to soften frown lines, forehead lines and crow’s feet. It can also be used to lift a drooping brow or down-turned smile and even reduces excess underarm perspiration. Some studies show that BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can even help reduce the frequency of migraine headaches.

About Your Treatment
Treatment is quick and is performed in the office setting. Some minor swelling or redness may occur at the injection site but these side effects generally fade within minutes and patients are able to immediately resume their normal routine after treatment. Patients see results within just a few days and the effects usually last for three to four months. Maintenance treatments can safely be repeated when necessary to preserve your new, younger look.
Although BOTOX® Cosmetic is a great solution for helping prevent wrinkles from deepening, existing wrinkles may be better treated with an injectable filler, or with other skin rejuvenation treatments like laser skin resurfacing.
