Botox® Cosmetic

Botox® Cosmetic is the only FDA approved treatment for the temporary reduction of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in patients 18 to 65 years of age. Ten-minutes--a tiny few injections-- and within days there’s a noticeable improvement. There’s no recovery or downtime. You can even receive Botox® Cosmetic treatment on your lunch break. Results last up to four months. Individual results may vary.


Q.   What causes frown lines between the brows? How does Botox® Cosmetic help?
A.  
The lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time. Two muscles are largely responsible for frown lines between the brows. When those muscles contract, they draw the brows together. As skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated frowning can result in those moderate to severe lines between your brows. Botox® Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of those muscles. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smoothes out, and the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows begin to fade.

Q.   What is the treatment like?
A.  
Botox® Cosmetic is a quick and minimally invasive treatment. The doctor makes a few tiny injections into the muscles that cause moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. No anesthesia is required, although the area may be numbed with a cold pack or anesthetic cream, prior to injecting. The entire procedure takes approximately ten minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief—most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. You may resume normal activity immediately. Visible results can last up to four months. After that, you may be ready to return for a follow-up treatment.

Q.   How does Botox® Cosmetic compare to other options?
A.  
Botox® Cosmetic treats the cause of these frown lines between the brows by reducing the muscle contractions that cause the lines to form over time. Botox® Cosmetic is the only temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.
