How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother.

What to expect with treatment

Some patients receiving BOTOX® Cosmetic report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines in adults.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.

Recovery From BOTOX®

Only BOTOX® Cosmetic has been evaluated and approved by the FDA to help make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines temporarily look better in adults. Make sure you receive authentic BOTOX® Cosmetic – by taking a few simple steps.

  • Ask to see the vial of BOTOX® Cosmetic that the specialist will use during your treatment. The vial will have the BOTOX® Cosmetic logo and also have a holographic image that says “Allergan”. If the vial has another logo or marking, then it is not BOTOX® Cosmetic.
  • See a reputable medical provider who purchases BOTOX® Cosmetic directly from Allergan or a distributor authorized by Allergan.

 

BOTOX® Cosmetic is manufactured by Allergan in a state-of-the-art facility under the strictest quality and safety standards. Every vial is filled and sealed in a completely sterile environment where the air is filtered and refreshed in excess of 200 times an hour.
