BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic, a brand name of Botulinum Toxin Type A, manufactured by Allergan, Inc. is commonly used to rejuvenate the upper one third of the face by reducing wrinkles and frown lines between the eyes, the crow's feet around the eyes and the forehead. And although less common, it can also be used to reduce wrinkles around the mouth.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only treatment of its type approved by the FDA for this use. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are the fastest-growing procedure in the industry. Used in the medical profession for over 20 years, BOTOX® Cosmetic has a long history of safety.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is proven, simple and effective for reducing wrinkles, and for creating a youthful, alert and refreshed appearance. The treatment requires no recovery time and causes little discomfort.

BOTOX® Cosmetic has it effects by slowing nerve conduction to facial muscles which results in the relaxation of wrinkles and a more refreshed appearance. The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic will begin to be noted within 5-7 days after the injections. BOTOX® Cosmetic can last up to four months, and is a procedure that can be accomplished on your lunch break. It is often referred to as the "lunchtime facelift." If side effects occur they are usually minimal, and include such things as bruising and mild, limited swelling. All patients are asked to stop taking Aspirin or NSAIDS (i.e. Ibuprofen) 10 days before the procedure to avoid bruising, although it is not absolutely necessary. Ice packs can also be applied before/after the procedure to minimize the possibility of this side effect. If redness and swelling occur, it will resolve within minutes.
