Get the inside Story. Read on to find out answers to some commonly asked questions about BOTOX Cosmetic.
The lines that appear between your brows actually results from muscle movement and the passage of time.
Two muscles are largely responsible for frown lines between the brows. When those muscles contract, they draw the brows together. As skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated frowning can result in those moderate to sever lines between your brows.
BOTOX Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of those muscles. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smooths out, and the moderate to sever frown lines between your brows begin to fade.
BOTOX Cosmetic is a purified protein. It is a non-surgically administered treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows.
BOTOX Cosmetic is the only treatment of this type approved by the FDA for this use. The treatment is minimally invasive and non-surgical. It requires no recovery time and causes little discomfort.
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. The appearance of the area between your brows may continue to improve for up to a week.
By day 30 in a patient clinical study, 89% of patients judged the severity of their frown lines between their brows as moderate or better.
Visible results can last up to four months. After that, you may be ready to return for a follow-up treatment.
Patients with neurological disorders such as ALS, Myasthenia Gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at increased risk of serious side effects. The most common side effects include headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary eyelid droop, and nausea.
Other side effects include pain and redness where the medicine is injected, pain in the face, and muscle weakness. These effects generally occur within the first week and usually go away on their own. Your own result may vary.
The effect of each treatment can last up to four months - be sure to schedule your follow-up treatments in advance.
If you decide not to continue with BOTOX Cosmetic, the area between your brows will eventually go back to its pretreatment appearance.
Compared to other aesthetic treatment options, BOTOX Cosmetic is relatively inexpensive. According to a survey by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it’s one of the least costly facial aesthetic procedures. And when you consider the difference it can make in the appearance of the moderate to sever frown lines between your brows, you may find BOTOX Cosmetic to be a great way to invest in yourself.
