BOTOX® Cosmetic therapy is a simple, non-surgical procedure that softens facial wrinkles, creating a younger and more refreshed looking face. We’re ready to do all that we can to keep you looking great! Small amounts of BOTOX® Cosmetic are injected into specific facial muscles, immobilizing the area and allowing the lines to gradually smooth out, and new creases are prevented from forming.
It is important to remember that BOTOX® Cosmetic affects only the specific treated muscles, leaving the surrounding muscles to function as usual. After injection, it takes three to five days to begin taking effect and up to seven days to see the full effect. BOTOX® Cosmetic therapy is temporary and usually lasts two to four months, depending on the individual.
BOTOX® was approved by the US FDA in 1989, and has the longest period of proven clinical testing and safety in the world. The safety profile of BOTOX® Cosmetic is considered to be excellent. It has been used for patients with various conditions for over 10 years in over 60 countries. Patients who are pregnant, nursing, allergic to albumin (eggs), taking certain antibiotics, affected by any neuromuscular or collagen vascular disease, or that have had any recent eye surgery may not use BOTOX® Cosmetic.
