What is Botox Cosmetic and How Does it Work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles to temporarily treat moderate to severe frown lines between the brows of adults 18 to 65 years of age. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes those lines to form between the brows.

BOTOX®  Cosmetic contains a purified protein and 2 inactive ingredients.  Because the protein is derived from living organisms, BOTOX®  Cosmetic is considered to be a biologic product.  Each of these products is unique, and that’s why there is no such thing as a generic form of BOTOX®  Cosmetic.

Why Should I Consider Botox Cosmetic?

Years of squinting, concentrating, or frowning can cause your skin to furrow and crease. As time passes, your skin becomes less elastic and those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows remain even when your muscles aren’t contracting. Botox could be your solution.

Will I still be able to make facial expressions?

Although the results are visible, treatment with BOTOX Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you’ve “had hard work done.” The muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines between the brows is temporarily reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.

Quick, minimally invasive procedure

BOTOX®  Cosmetic treatment is a quick, 10-minute procedure that requires no downtime or recovery – it’s often called a lunchtime procedure.

With a few tiny injections, BOTOX®  Costmetic blocks nerve implulses reducing their movement.  This decreased muscle activity helps lesson the appearance of moderate to severe frown lines for real, noticeable results.

How fast will I see results?

BOTOX®  Cosmetic starts to work within 24 to 48 hours.  In clinical trials, a majority of people saw significant improvement at 7 days, with results continuing to improve for up to a month.

How long will my results last?

Results have been shown to last up to four (4) months. Your own results may vary.
