BOTOX Cosmetic is an injectable used to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults.
What to expect
Before Your Appointment
Avoid excessive alcohol or medically unnecessary blood thinning medication before treatment to prevent bruising.
During Your Appointment
During treatment, your specialist will inject a tiny amount of Botox into the target muscles. The number of injections may vary by treatment, but about 16 are generally used. Some patients develop slight redness at the injection site, but the redness usually clears within 15 minutes or so. Still, you should avoid touching the injection site for at least 60 minutes. The entire treatment process takes anywhere from 10 to 15 minutes.
After Your Appointment
You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within three to five days, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines in adults. BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
To allow BOTOX to work optimally in the target muscle,
the following precautions are suggested:
- No rubbing or massaging the injected area for 4 hours after treatment, including facials.
- No strenuous exercise for 24 hours after treatment.
- Keep upright for 4 hours.
- Avoid headwear that is tightly fitted across the forehead.
