About Botox® Cosmetic
Botox Cosmetic is FDA approved for the temporary treatment of facial expression lines and has been safely used for over 15 years for cosmetic purposes. Botox injections contain a protein that blocks the nerves and weakens the muscles that cause deep wrinkles and frown lines on the face.
Botox Cosmetic is used to treat expression lines on the forehead, around the eyes, on the nose, and between the eyebrows.
What to Expect with Botox® Cosmetic
With a single Botox treatment, you achieve a natural-looking, more youthful appearance. A Botox session takes approximately ten minutes and within one week of the injection you’ll look and feel more refreshed. The effects of Botox injections are temporary; most patients see results that last approximately 3 – 4 months.
After your Botox injection, you may notice a slight, temporary redness and elevation in the treatment area. Most people feel comfortable returning to their normal routine immediately after treatment with slight redness resolving typically within one hour.
