About Botox®

Botox® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age. Made from a muscle-relaxing agent derived from botulinum, Botox® temporarily reduces the contractions of the muscles that cause wrinkles. As a result, the overlying skin becomes smoother, creating a rested, approachable appearance and virtually erasing fine lines from worry, squinting and frowning.

Lunchtime Procedure

The procedure takes about 10 minutes in the office. Often called a "lunchtime procedure," the treatment requires no recovery or downtime. During the procedure, several tiny Botox® injections are administered directly into the strategic facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. The maximum effect, achieved within two weeks, is seen in diminished wrinkles, lifting of the brow and reduction in frown lines and crow's feet. This effect typically lasts up to three months.

Botox® is safe and has very few side effects.  Rare side effects include headache, flu symptoms and temporary eyelid droop.
