BOTOX Cosmetic is one of the most commonly requested and popular treatments on the anti-aging market as it uses an FDA-approved botulinum toxin formula to smooth wrinkles.
Botox Cosmetic® injections are most well-known for diminishing the appearance of wrinkles on the face, around the eyes, and forehead. Botox Cosmetic® is an (onabotulinumtoxin A) and is used in very small doses to paralyze the muscles in a targeted area, which stops the movement that causes wrinkles.
Treatment & Results
Botox® treatment involves a series of injections with a very fine gauge needle. Botox treatments can take up to 3-5 days to start to appear, maximum results in 14 days. Botox results typically last approximately 3 months depending on the person and what area was treated. Botox is not a permanent treatment; regular maintenance every 3 months is recommended
Botox® injections require no downtime, so you can get right back to your regular activities. You may feel some soreness at the injection site for a few hours or days after treatment, but this is usually minimal and passes quickly. You should avoid strenuous aerobic exercise (increasing the heart rate and sweating), extreme heat, and do not massage the site for at least 24 hours after.

Frequently Asked Questions
Your cost for a BOTOX treatment will be based on the amount of product that is needed. This varies to fit your unique goals. BOTOX produces great results when injected by an experienced cosmetic professional. However, it can also be dangerous if performed by someone who doesn’t have experience, which is why you should avoid any place that is advertising discounted or off-brand injections.
The results from BOTOX may be visible for as long as four months. Usually, patients schedule an appointment every quarter to refresh their results; however, you may want to come back earlier. If you’re using BOTOX before wrinkles are visible for a proactive measure, you can schedule appointments further apart.
Injectable wrinkle relaxers (including BOTOX) and injectable wrinkle fillers (including Restylane and Juvéderm) are both popular cosmetic procedures that decrease wrinkles and correct fine lines. BOTOX works by relaxing overused muscles in your face that create dynamic wrinkles, including frown lines (which appear between your eyebrows), Crow’s feet (which appear in the outer edges of your eyes), smile lines, and forehead wrinkles. Dermal fillers increase volume below the skin to correct depressions and improve the appearance of wrinkles on the surface.
As long as it is administered correctly, BOTOX should not cause serious complications. However, it’s still very important to find someone with experience injecting BOTOX. Too much of the product may cause bad results. An experienced practitioner will apply the right dose to safely relax the facial muscles causing the unwanted wrinkles without affecting nearby muscles. Quickly becoming one of the most requested cosmetic treatments, it is considered safe and has earned approval from the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). Along with its cosmetic uses, BOTOX can also be used as a treatment for medical conditions, such as excessive sweating, facial spasms, migraines, and uncontrollable blinking.
