About BOTOX®

HOW DOES BOTOX® COSMETIC WORK?

Real, Noticeable Results

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch

Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes

Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.

You’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable frown lines and crow’s feet

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy.

Return to your daily routine

Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.

Cost considerations

Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment—look for someone who is licensed and trained and has experience treating patients with BOTOX® Cosmetic.

Be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX® Cosmetic—if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

It is more important to find an experienced specialist who will take the time to understand your treatment goals and develop a treatment plan that is right for you.
