BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved product to temporarily improve both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines around the sides of the eyes in adults.
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Your doctor will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
To temporarily improve moderate to severe crow’s feet, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes—called the orbicularis oculi. For temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines, BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into 2 muscles—the corrugator and procerus muscles. Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic takes approximately 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery— it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. Think 2 treatments, 1 visit. Ask your doctor about receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic for moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet at the same time.
When BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by an experienced injector, you should not lose the ability to show expressions. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a techniquesensitive procedure that should only be performed by a licensed and trained aesthetic provider who has expertise in facial anatomy. Talk to your doctor about your expectations and the results you want to achieve with treatment.
After treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic, you may look in the mirror and see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. But BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance. You can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by temporarily reducing the contractions of the muscles that cause those persistent frown lines that have developed between your brows over time. Within days, you may see an improvement that can last up to 4 months. Results may vary. If you do not continue treatments, the frown lines between your brows will gradually look like they did before treatment.
Most patients will see results within 10 to 14 days but should wait the full 14 days to see the maximum results.
