What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults. BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only product of its kind that’s FDA-approved treatment for the temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet in adult patients.
How does BOTOX®Cosmetic work?
We have to eliminate another common misconception -BOTOX® Cosmetic does not paralyze your muscles. Muscles move when your nerves tell them to. When BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected it attaches itself to the nerve endings in the injected muscles and interferes with communication between the nerve and the muscle. It’s more difficult for the nerve to tell the muscle to move, so the muscle relaxes. When injected into a muscle that causes a wrinkle, the wrinkle is also relaxed. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles may often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax. Patients who have been receiving BOTOX® for a number of years typically have longer-lasting results.
How Long Do Results Last?
Results can last between 4-6 months* before touch-ups. Instead of pricing the BOTOX® Cosmetic by the area treated and making those that need less subsidize those that need more, we only charge for the number of BOTOX® Cosmetic units we inject. This means that you can feel free to have a small touch-up without having to pay for a full treatment. This also means you can receive touch-ups more frequently to keep the muscles relaxed and improve the long term resiliency of the BOTOX® Cosmetic. Recent studies show that simultaneous BOTOX® Cosmetic and IPL treatments result in a higher stimulation of the collagen regrowth than either of these treatments provide alone.*Individual results and treatment sessions may vary. BOTOX® Cosmetic should only be administered through a licensed practitioner.
