HOW BOTOX® COSMETIC WORKS

A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.

MODERATE TO SEVERE FROWN LINES

When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make frown lines temporarily look better.

MODERATE TO SEVERE CROW’S FEET

When you squint or smile, the muscles around your eyes contract, causing crow’s feet. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make crow’s feet temporarily look better.

MODERATE TO SEVERE FOREHEAD LINES

When you raise your eyebrows, the muscles on your forehead contract, causing skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make forehead lines temporarily look better.

HOW MUCH RESEARCH HAS GONE INTO BOTOX® COSMETIC?

When you choose BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can trust in its established track record. Backed by over 16 years of published studies, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most widely researched and studied treatment of its kind, approved for use in 98 countries. The safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been described in more than 528 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.

What to expect with treatment

Some patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, 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.

IS THERE A SUBSTITUTE FOR BOTOX® COSMETIC?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a biologic product that cannot be interchanged – or substituted – for another product. In fact, the FDA has stated BOTOX® Cosmetic is “non-interchangeable,” which means that its safety and effectiveness cannot be claimed by any other product. The potency – or strength – of BOTOX® Cosmetic is measured in scientifically defined units that cannot be compared to any other product, due to our unique manufacturing process. There are no substitutes for our product.

People who are prescribed a biologic product have a right to know exactly what they are receiving. Be sure to ask which product you are being prescribed and why.

WILL MY FACE LOOK OVERDONE OR UNNATURAL?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust BOTOX® Cosmetic to deliver subtle results when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. So you’ll look like yourself—only with less noticeable lines. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.

IS BOTOX® COSMETIC ONLY FOR WOMEN?

Not at all! Many men make BOTOX® Cosmetic part of what they do to care for their appearance.

The number of men choosing treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic has risen fast – in the past three years alone, men have received over one million botulinum toxin treatments. When surveyed, the majority of men say they want to look good and they’re bothered by the changes they see in the mirror. 80% would choose to treat their crow’s feet first, while 74% would prioritize their forehead lines, and 60% would most like to treat their frown lines.

HOW MUCH TIME DOES TREATMENT TAKE? WILL IT HURT?

The actual injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you. Then, some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. Or, if you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.

WILL I SEE RESULTS QUICKLY? HOW LONG DO TREATMENT EFFECTS LAST?

You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to four months for moderate to severe frown lines. Remember that results vary from patient to patient though, so your physician will plan your next appointment based on your results and aesthetic goals.

Botox Before and After

Liquid Facelift

A liquid facelift is a nonsurgical procedure that uses injectables to restore facial volume, reduce wrinkles, and rejuvenate the face and give it a more youthful appearance. 

The “liquid” in a liquid facelift is typically an injectable dermal filler, to restore lost volume, combined with Botox, to relax facial muscles and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. 

  • It can make people look years younger almost immediately. 
  • It’s a far less invasive way to gently lift tissue and smooth wrinkles than a traditional facelift, which is significantly more expensive and comes with up to two weeks of downtime.
  • It works by restoring lost volume, which a surgical facelift cannot do
  • Aside from minor bruising and swelling, there’s little to no downtime. 

Botox for Underarm Sweating

Excessive sweating, or hyperhidrosis, can be treated with injections of Botox into areas with overactive sweat glands. The treatment is FDA-approved for the armpits, but it can also be used off-label for the feet, palms, and face.

Botox is injected directly into the targeted area, where it disables the nerve signals responsible for activating sweat glands—similar to how it disables the nerve signals of muscles to relax them and prevent movement. It’s most effective in the armpits, with 50 units typically injected on each side over 20–25 injections.

A fine-gauge needle is used to inject the Botox superficially. Pain should be minimal, no more than pinpricks. That said, since the treatment requires so many injections, your doctor may provide numbing cream and/or ice the area prior to treatment to reduce sensation.

The effects may last three to six months, though doctors on RealSelf report these are often even longer-lasting.

Insurance may cover Botox for hyperhidrosis if you have a medical diagnosis—but you’ll likely need to have already tried other treatment options, such as prescription antiperspirant.
