What is BOTOX® Used For?


BOTOX® is a popular form of non-invasive therapy that reduces the look of wrinkles and fights the signs of aging. The injections temporarily reduce or eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, including frown lines, forehead creases, crow’s feet, wrinkles around the eyes, and thick bands in the neck. BOTOX® is not only for women! Both men and women have great results with injection therapy, looking younger with reduced wrinkles and smoother skin.

How Does BOTOX® Work?


BOTOX® is the cosmetic form of botulinum toxin, often referred to by its product name BOTOX® Cosmetic. In regards to how it works, the toxin blocks the nerve impulses, which temporarily paralyze the muscles that cause wrinkles while giving the skin a smoother, more refreshed appearance. Studies have also suggested that BOTOX® Cosmetic can be effective in relieving migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and muscle spasms in a patient’s neck and eyes.

How Long Does BOTOX® Last?


The results from BOTOX® will typically last around 3 to 4 months. As muscle action returns, the lines and wrinkles can begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are shrinking from the treatments.

How Long Is BOTOX Recovery®?


Because BOTOX® Cosmetic is a non-invasive procedure, you can return to normal activities immediately. The treatment takes about 10 minutes in the office. Results of the BOTOX® Cosmetic injections will be noticeable within 5 to 7 days of the procedure, and the final results will become visible by 2 weeks.
