What does BOTOX® Cosmetic do?

BOTOX® is completely non-surgical and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in various area of your face. The injectable is commonly used for:

  • Vertical lines between the eyebrows (frown lines)
  • Forehead lines
  • Lines at the corners of your eyes (crow's feet)
  • Vertical lines extending from the lips (smoker's lines)

BOTOX® effectively reduces the appearance of lines caused by muscle contraction. All of the types of wrinkles in the list above are caused by years' worth of smiling, furrowing your brow, smoking and otherwise using your facial muscles. Over time, the wrinkles formed by muscle contraction become set in place, so they persist even when you relax the muscles.

For wrinkles caused by sagging skin and volume loss, such as the nasolabial folds that extend from the nose down to the mouth, BOTOX® may not be effective. A filler like Juvederm® may be necessary to plump up the lost volume.

How BOTOX® Works

To prevent these types of wrinkles, BOTOX® freezes the muscular contraction so the lines cannot form. BOTOX® has been used on millions and millions of people for wrinkles, and it has shown to have an excellent safety profile with very rare complications.

Oftentimes, when a complication does arise, it is caused by an error made by the person injecting it. It is important to find a doctor who is experienced using BOTOX® and who has authentic medical credentials.

BOTOX® requires no downtime and provides virtually immediate results. The rejuvenating, wrinkle-reducing effects of BOTOX® last about four months, at which point re-treatment is necessary to sustain the effects.
