What is Botox?

BOTOX Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.

How does Botox work?

BOTOX targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. Botox is injected in these muscles to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your crow’s feet lines and frown lines between your brows.

Before and After Botox Treatment

What should I expect with treatment?


• Real, noticeable results

You may begin to notice results 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

We may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, we may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

• The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes

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

• Return to your daily routine

Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
