Botox® Treatments to Combat Wrinkles and Facial Lines
Botox® injections are the fastest-growing cosmetic procedures in the industry, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). The procedure is one of the safest available for the reduction or softening of wrinkles.
What is Botox® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It is a safe, natural, purified protein that relaxes the muscles to prevent frowning. Botox® Cosmetic is a product of Allergan and has been FDA approved for use in the United States for both cosmetic and therapeutic administrations such as Blepharospasms and recently for chronic migraine headaches.
Botox® Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows. Individual results may vary.
How does Botox® Cosmetic Work?
Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of the “11s,” the moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines). It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
What Can Botox® be Used For?
- Frown, Worry, Laugh, and Bunny Lines
- Periorbital Wrinkles (Crow’s Feet)
- Brow Lift or Brow Asymmetry

When Will I See Results and How Long Will They Last?
Within a few days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate-to-severe frown lines between your brows. Full affect of the Botox® is achieved in 7 days; however, lines continue to improve for up to 30 days. Your first treatment lasts about 3 months, if you re-treat at that time, results may begin to last for up to 4 months. Results may vary for different patients.
