The information that follows is designed to give you a better understanding of Botox® Cosmetic, so you can decide if is right for you or a loved one. 

Botox Cosmetic is a simple treatment performed by our physicians that can temporarily smooth moderate to severe frown lines between the brows for people aged 18 to 65 years old. 

One treatment consists of a few tiny injections and takes approximately 10 minutes. Within a few days you will notice an improvement that can last up to 4 months. However, results may vary and after the initial 4 months you may need to return for a follow-up treatment. 

Botox Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses and reducing the movement of the muscles that cause frown lines. With less movement, the skin can smooth out and the frown lines begin to fade. 

Side effects can include pain and redness at the point of injection, facial pain and muscle weakness. These side effects typically diminish after one week. If you experience any additional side effects or the side effects mentioned do not diminish, please call our office and ask to speak with a physician.
