Frequently asked questions about our premium injectables:
How does it work?
BOTOX Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) works by temporarily weakening the muscle contractions of certain facial muscle. This does not allow the muscle injected to contract- or squeeze as strongly, therefore reducing the wrinkles that are caused by muscle contraction.
The repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years can create deep wrinkles that make you look tired, older and even angry! BOTOX Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity so you’ll begin to notice a visibly smoothing of the lines which in turn reduces the unwanted wrinkles in these areas of treatment.
Will I look overdone?
BOTOX Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your provider about the results you want from your treatment.
Does the treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX Cosmetic feels like a pinch. An insulin needle is used. Your provider may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.
How long does treatment take and Last?
The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery – it’s is often called a lunchtime procedure. Treatments typically last 3-4 months and then begin to fade away gradually.
What were common side effects seen in clinical studies?
Three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping in the frown lines studies and 1% of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow’s feet studies. Other possible side effects include: discomfort or pain at the injection site; headache; and eye problems: double vision, blurred vision, drooping eylids, and swelling of the eyelids. These are not all of the possible serious side effects of BOTOX Cosmetic. Please talk to your provider.
