BOTOX® Cosmetic

Visible improvement of frown lines

Years of squinting, concentrating or frowning can cause furrows and creases in the skin between the brows. BOTOX Cosmetic is an approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of these moderate to severe frown lines in adults.

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is a quick, 10-minute procedure that requires no downtime or recovery. The treatment targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines — repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting. With a few tiny injections, BOTOX Cosmetic blocks nerve impulses to reduce muscle activity for a visible smoothing of lines between your brows.

Real, noticeable results may begin within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months.

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX Cosmetic feels like a pinch.
Ice to numb the treatment area or a topical numbing cream may be applied before treatment if you are concerned about discomfort.

Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.

At Dermatology & Skin Surgery, your BOTOX Cosmetic treatment is administered by a licensed medical expert in facial anatomy with special training in the treatment technique, so you don’t lose the ability to show expression. You can still frown or look surprised, but without the wrinkles between your brows.

BOTOX Cosmetic is the number one product of its kind prescribed in the United States with a record of effectiveness and safety dermatologists know and trust. Talk to your doctor to discuss any potential risks, side effects and other issues associated with treatment to determine if BOTOX Cosmetic is right for you.
