What is BOTOX® Cosmetic? BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium Botulinum bacterium. It was FDA approved in 2002 for the treatment of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, but has been approved for medical and therapeutic uses since 1989.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work? Over time, frown lines between the brows will appear as a result of muscle activity. BOTOX® Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses in those muscles between the brows. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic reduce this muscle movement, allowing the skin’s surface to gradually smooth out and the frown lines to disappear.
Is treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic painful? A treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-surgical procedure administered via a few tiny injections. An anesthetic cream is used to numb the treatment area and prevent any discomfort. The entire procedure takes about 15 minutes. Most people resume normal activity immediately. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous exercise and hot baths for 24 hours after treatment.
What are some common side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic? The most common side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic are headache, temporary eyelid droop and bruising. A cold pack is recommended to reduce the likelihood of these effects.
How long will BOTOX® Cosmetic last? It may take up to one week for the full impact of the BOTOX® Cosmetic to take effect. After that, the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic can last for up to 4 months. If you discontinue treatment, the frown lines between your brows will gradually reappear.
