What Is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic offers fast and reliable softening and reduction of unwanted facial creases. It is ideal for fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and nose. Even the appearance of deeper lines on the forehead, mouth, and between the eyebrows can be softened. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable made from botulinum toxin type A, a neurotoxin that minimizes the appearance of dynamic wrinkles by temporarily interfering with specific muscle contractions. Dynamic wrinkles are lines caused by repeated muscle movements, such as facial expressions. BOTOX® Cosmetic provides a rejuvenated facial appearance that is sure to be noticed.

Achieved With BOTOX® Cosmetic
Repeated muscle movements around the eyes and upper face cause fine lines and wrinkles to develop at a quicker rate than they would on other regions of the face. These lines alter your appearance and can make you look older and more intense than you actually are. BOTOX® Cosmetic smooths these wrinkles so that you can regain a youthful and pleasing appearance.
Patients who opt for this treatment can address various areas of concern. Although most patients choose BOTOX® Cosmetic to combat aging on the upper face, it is also useful in reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles between the nose and mouth.
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is an in-office procedure that can take as few as 10 minutes to complete. Results begin to show within a few days after injection and continue to improve without requiring any downtime or recovery period. The effect may last four months or more.
So much of your confidence revolves around how you see yourself. The presence of premature fine lines and wrinkles may lead to a lack of self-esteem, which affects the way you present yourself in social and professional situations. BOTOX® Cosmetic can diminish these insecurities and improve your quality of life.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quick and comfortable way to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into the desired area using a fine needle. This neurotoxin blocks nerve impulses from reaching the muscles, inhibiting the muscles’ ability to contract and create wrinkles. Over time, the targeted muscles relax, and fine lines begin to soften or disappear altogether. Some discomfort may be experienced initially; however, it should only last a few seconds. BOTOX® Cosmetic is an outpatient treatment that only takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
