BOTOX® Cosmetic injections can reduce the signs of aging by reducing the muscle activity and wrinkles of the eyebrows and forehead. It is the only approved treatment that will temporarily enhance your appearance by reducing both moderate to severe lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines.
Over time we develop frown line and crow’s feet as a result of repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting. Your surgeon will inject these muscles with Botox® which temporarily reduces muscle activity.
Botox® injections is technique-sensitive treatment. Our surgeons are licensed, trained, and medical experts in facial anatomy. Please discuss the results you want from your treatment and our surgeon will explain the intended outcome.
Each patient will experience a different feeling during the injection process, most reporting that it feels like a pinch. If you are concerned about feeling any discomfort, ask your surgeon about your options.
While side effects are uncommon and not permanent, 3% of patients experienced eyelid drooping and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling. Other possible side effects include: discomfort or pain at the injection site; tiredness; headache; neck pain; dry mouth; eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, decreased eyesight and dry eyes; and allergic reactions. Ask you surgeon to explain the list of side effects.
Your surgeon will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis. Based on your goals, the actual injection process will vary but typically takes about 10 minutes.
The time to see results will vary by person but typically you will notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines.
Results vary based on individual situations with results lasting up to 4 months.
Your surgeon will provide you with specific aftercare instructions and you can resume your day immediately after treatment.
