BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe crow’s feet lines & frown lines between the eyebrows. Wrinkles result from cellular changes, reduction of collagen, damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment. When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow & fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract & cause crow’s feet. What it narrows down to is, wrinkles are due to the numerous facial expressions we perform on a daily basis.
Botox is applied to prevent facial muscles’ movement – causing a smoother, renewed & fresh outlook on faces for extended durations. After Botox, fine lines & wrinkles begin to soften & in many cases eliminated.

How long does the treatment take?
Your specialist will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatments for you. The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes.
What is the average treatment cost?
Your cost not only includes the price of the product, but more importantly, the skill and expertise of the specialist or healthcare professional who is administering your treatment. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment—look for someone who is licensed and trained and has experience treating patients with BOTOX® Cosmetic. Be wary of discount products or “cheap” BOTOX® Cosmetic—if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
When will I see results & how long do they last?
You may begin to notice results within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines. The medication takes 3-7 days to take effect & lasts between 3-4 months in most individuals, but can last longer, especially among those who have been previously treated. This is an estimate as everyone is unique in their own way and metabolize the product differently. It is important to remember that the more often you keep up with your treatments, the longer your results will last in the long run.
How many injections will I receive?
-Crow’s feet: your specialist will inject 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi, the muscle that frames the side of the eye. This is repeated on the orbicularis oculi muscle on the other eye.
-Frown lines: your specialist will administer 5 injections into muscles in your forehead—1 in the procerus muscle and 4 in the corrugator muscles.
