What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only injectable treatment that is FDA-approved to temporarily improve the appearance of moderate to severe crow’s feet and frown lines between the brows. It is the most extensively studied aesthetic treatment on the market today, and the #1 selling product of its kind in the world. It has been approved for use in 78 countries, with 10.9 million vials sold in the United States alone since 2002.
How Does it Work?
One of the most common causes of wrinkles that people often overlook is facial movements. Over the course of a lifetime, an individual makes millions of individual facial expressions. While these expressions are a normal part of a healthy life, they can take a toll on the appearance of your skin, leaving behind wrinkles and fine lines on the forehead, corners of the eyes, and near the mouth.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is part of a class of injectables called neuromodulators. These products are all made of varying formulas of botulinum toxin. When injected into the facial muscles, this chemical temporarily relaxes them. This gives time for the wrinkles caused by muscle contractions to smooth over and soften, revealing younger-looking skin. Because this muscle relaxation only lasts for a period of four months, additional injections are needed after this time to maintain the result of the first treatment.
What can it Treat?
BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to treat most facial wrinkles and fine lines caused by muscle movement, including:
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead lines
- Vertical lip lines
- Chin dimpling
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment Like?
Each BOTOX® Cosmetic injectable treatment typically takes no more than 10 minutes to administer and features little to no downtime. The initial results of treatment begin to appear 24-48 hours after your first injections. Because these results only last about four months, additional periodic injections are required to sustain any changes.
