BOTOX® Cosmetic is a FDA-approved to temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic reduces muscle contractions thereby relaxing the facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. At Prism Dermatology, our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Bosley, strives to achieve a dramatic yet natural appearing result.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING A BOTOX® COSMETIC TREATMENT?
BOTOX® Cosmetic procedure is a quick, simple 10-minute treatment that requires no anesthesia and minimal downtime. Though most patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic report minimal discomfort, others may 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. BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. For optimal results, regularly scheduled treatment every 3-4 months will aid in maintaining the desired results. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
WHERE CAN BOTOX® COSMETIC BE USED IN THE SKIN?
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments are usually performed between your eyebrows, around the eyes and on the forehead. Botulinum toxin is also effective on other areas such as the neck. BOTOX® Cosmetic can also be used to reduce sweating in areas of overactive sweating such as the underarms.
