What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved prescription product that temporarily improves the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and moderate to severe crow’s feet in adults.

BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface
Wrinkles result from a combination of many factors. It’s not just about cellular changes, collagen depletion, or damage caused by free radicals. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.

BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet to form over time.

Your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscles that cause frown lines and crow’s feet lines, temporarily reducing the activity of those muscles. The result is a reduction in the appearance of those lines.


Here are some questions to ask:

Do they have medical expertise in facial anatomy?

How many years of experience do they have injecting BOTOX® Cosmetic?

How often do they treat patients with BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Do they schedule a follow-up visit after treatment?

Will they show you Before-and-After pictures of other patients they have treated?

What are the most common side effects they have seen in their clinical experience?

What should you do if you experience any side effects?

Finally — be prepared to tell your doctor about any medical conditions, including any prescription medications, vitamins, or herbal supplements you are taking.
