BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved treatment that temporarily smooths moderate to severe foreheads, crows feet, and frown lines in adults. Life tends to bring us plenty of surprises, smiles, and frowns. Our series of facial expressions mean repeated muscle contractions, one of the factors that may lead to prominent lines. If you’re bothered by the lines, you’re not the only one.
BOTOX is a safe, nonsurgical injectable that gives subtle but noticeable and real results when it comes to decreasing the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles.
BOTOX Cosmetic temporarily reduces muscle activity in order to smooth and revive. It can also be used in younger patients to prevent those fine lines and wrinkles. Despite some stigmas regarding BOTOX, you will NOT lose the ability to show expression and you will still look like YOU after treatment, just with fewer and softer lines!
What To Expect
It’s a quick ten to twenty minute treatment with minimal downtime, allowing you to be in and out of the office. It is a very comfortable treatment, but some patients prefer ice or numbing cream before proceeding. You may begin to notice results within a day or two, which last up to three or four months depending on the patient. BOTOX® Cosmetic can also be used to treat the symptoms of severe underarm sweating. Smooth your wrinkles and reduce the signs of aging with BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Duration varies • Price varies
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 temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes these lines, resulting in smooth, youthful, natural looking skin.

Frequently Asked Questions
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines — the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Your specialist will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet lines and your forehead lines.
Does the treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your specialist may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your specialist can instead apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
How long is the recovery time?
Treatment requires minimal downtime. So you can return to your daily routine immediately after you leave your specialist’s office.
When will I see results?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines.
