Frequently Asked QuestionsBotox

How Does BOTOX Cosmetic Work?
Those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows form over time as the result of muscle activity.  BOTOX Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles between your brows.  It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form.

When Will I See Results from a BOTOX Cosmetic Treatment?
Typically, most people that undergo BOTOX injections see an improvement in the appearance of fine line and wrinkles within a few days.  However, it will take two weeks to see the full results of the BOTOX injections.  In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women rated the improvement in their appearance as moderate to better one month after treatment.  Results may vary.

How Long does BOTOX Cosmetic Last?
Results from treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic can last for up to four months.  If you discontinue treatment, the frown lines between your brows gradually will look like they did before treatment.

Is Treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic Painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.  Prior to injecting, your physician may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream.  The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes.  Many people are in and out of the physician’s office without downtime following BOTOX Cosmetic treatment.

Who Should Not Use BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic should not be used in the presence of infection at the proposed injection site and in individuals with known hypersensitivity to any ingredient in the formulation.  Patients with neuromuscular disorders such as ALS, myasthenia gravis or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects.

Will My Facial Expressions Continue to Look Natural?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you “had work done.”  The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.

What Will Happen to the Frown Lines Between My Brows If I Choose Not to Continue Treatments?
If you do not continue treatments, the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows will gradually look like they did before treatment.
