What is Botox® Cosmetic?

Botox® Cosmetic is a therapeutic muscle-relaxing agent. Physicians have utilized Botox®Cosmetic for years as a cosmetic treatment to correct visible signs of stress and aging.

How does Botox® work?

The contractions and movements of the facial muscles are controlled by signals from the brain. Botox® simply prevents the muscle from responding to these messages. As a result, the muscle relaxes and the overlying skin remains unwrinkled and smooth.

What is treatment like?

With a very fine needle, Botox® is injected into the specific muscle that is contracting and causing the lines and wrinkles on the face. Treatment is effective, safe, and takes approximately 10 minutes. The pain is a minimal “pin prick” and no anesthetic is required.

How long does a Botox® treatment last?

The effects usually last 3 to 4 months, and fade away gradually. Following several treatments, the results may last 4 to 8 months or longer. Botox® offers extended relief over the course of long-term treatment.

Are there any possible side effects?

Temporary bruising is sometimes experienced, though this symptom resolves itself within a few days.

What type of results will I see?

Typically, the effect of Botox® is visible within 3 days. Maximum benefits are reached between 10 to 14 days. Once the muscle becomes dormant and the skin softens, you will have a more relaxed and youthful appearance.
