WHAT IS BOTOX®?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a medication that is injected directly into muscle tissue under the skin and is used to improve the appearance of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows for a short period of time. It is a temporary but effective treatment.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by a skin care doctor,or healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that’s injected into the muscle tissue between the eyebrows.

It works by obstructing nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This decreases muscle activity that creates moderate to severe lines to develop between the eyebrows.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a medication that is injected by a dermatologist or specially trained medical doctor. It is available only through licensed medical practices as it is a prescription medication. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a nonsurgical skin care treatment that is designed to reduce the frown lines that form between your eyebrows.

BOTOX® Cosmetic should only be used in people between the ages of 18 and 65, and works best on moderate to severe frown lines (called, in dermatology terms, glabellar lines) that make people look older. When used correctly, BOTOX® Cosmetic removes this sign of aging, making you look younger.

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes the nerve impulses in the muscles between your eyebrows. This stops them from furrowing and reduces the 11’s (the lines) that form between them.

When will I see results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment?

You may see improvement in within days, although they will continue to improve for up to one month – 30 days – after you receive this anti-aging skin care treatment. The results from a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment can last for 4 months. However, your personal results can vary, since everyone is different.

How long does BOTOX® Cosmetic last?

The results of a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment can visibly last for up to 4 months. Your results might vary; as this depends on many different factors including how pronounced your glabellar (11s) lines are. It is best to speak with your dermatologist or trained medical doctor about this so that you can schedule a follow up appointment.

Is treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic painful?

Before your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments begin, your dermatologist or medical doctor may decide to number the skin between your eyebrows with anesthetic cream or an ice pack. This is done to prevent the discomfort that may occur during this skin care treatment. There is no surgery involved, and you will be awake for the 10 or so minutes that the procedure takes.

Will I still be able to make facial expressions?

You will still be able to frown, look surprised, smile, and look happy after receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic skin care treatments. The results will be visible, but are subtle, so you won’t look like you’ve undergone any major cosmetic procedures. All that BOTOX® Cosmetic does is reduce the muscle activity between your eyebrows, reducing the 11s that make you look older.

Who should not take BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Although BOTOX® Cosmetic is approved by the FDA and is safe when administered by a dermatologist or specially trained medical doctor; some people should not receive it.
If you have had a past allergic reaction to the botulinum toxin in other forms, such as Dysport®or Myobloc®, then BOTOX® Cosmetic is not for you. The same is true if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in BOTOX® Cosmetic.
Also, if you have a skin infection between your eyebrows where your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment will go, you should not undergo the treatment, as this can worsen the infection.
Before you schedule your BOTOX® Cosmetic skin care treatment, talk to Dr. Price about the following:
  • If you have asthma, emphysema, or any other breathing problem.
  • If you have ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis), Lambert-Eaton syndrome, myasthenia gravis or any other disease that affects your nerves and muscles.
  • If you plan to have facial surgery or have already had facial surgery.
  • If you have any known bleeding or swallowing problems.
  • If you plan to become pregnant, already are pregnant, or are currently breastfeeding or planning to do so.
  • If you have noticed any drastic or subtle changes in your facial structure, such as drooping eyelids, problems raising your eyebrows, forehead muscle weakness, or any other issues.

What are the possible side effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Although BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments have been approved by the FDA, they can sometimes cause a number of serious side effects.

Some of the less serious side effects that are more commonly associated with this skin care treatment are tenderness, inflammation, swelling, bruising, bleeding, redness, pain and infection that can occur in the area of the BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.
The more serious side effects of this skin care treatment that you may experience are headache, tiredness, neck pain, dry mouth, discomfort, eye problems (including dry eye, drooping eyelids, blurred vision, double vision, decreased eyesight, and swollen eyelids) and allergic reactions to the compounds in BOTOX® Cosmetic. The symptoms of an allergic reaction include wheezing, feeling faint, dizziness, asthma-like symptoms, itching, red itchy welts and a rash. If you experience any of these serious side effects, please alert your dermatologist, medical doctor, or other trained health care personnel right away.

What will happen to the moderate to severe frown lines between my brows if I choose not to continue treatments?

If you stop receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic, the frown lines (glabellar lines) that previously were visible between your eyebrows will reappear. Over time, they will begin to look just like they did before you underwent the treatment.
