What Is BOTOX Cosmetic?
BOTOX Cosmetic eliminates wrinkles and lines on the face with an agent that is injected into the skin that causes the relaxation of the facial muscles. BOTOX Botulinum Toxin is the diluted form of the agent is safe and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. BOTOX Cosmetic can treat “crow’s feet” at the corner of the eyes to wrinkles between eyebrows - all this with a simple 10 minutes treatment.

Wrinkles around the eyes caused by different muscle movements and facial expressions are typically found around the eyes. BOTOX Cosmetics relaxes and weakens the muscles that are responsible for crinkling and squinting- reducing the appearance of crow’s feet and other wrinkles. There is no loss of feeling the area being treated as the injections only affect the muscles, not the nerves.
Like the eyes, the brows are also a prevalent area for wrinkles. Smiling, laughing, and frowning can all cause permanent wrinkling and by removing those wrinkles, significantly alter a person’s appearance. A face can change from the constant appearance of anger or sadness to a face of content and peace. The treatments are so effective in improving moderate to severe lines, many find it as an alternative to a brow lift. For men, reducing deep, stubborn furrows between the brows is also a widely documented benefit of BOTOX injections. The aesthetic improvement is seen after a few days, and results can last up to four months.
Wrinkles on the forehead can significantly age and create a haggard appearance. Facial expressions often create permanent creases in the skin and in these areas, where the deeper horizontal wrinkles, the BOTOX injections are quite valuable as they relax the facial muscles allowing for fewer wrinkles and smoother skin. Many believe that a cosmetic doctor must treat each wrinkle when really only the underlying muscles that cause wrinkles will be treated. Once you have received your BOTOX treatment, the muscles that ordinarily cause wrinkles and lines to appear in your forehead are no longer as active for a period of several months.
Recently, doctors have found that patients who have over sized masseter muscles, the muscles of the jaw that are used for chewing, can be treated with injections. Many patients with square-shaped who wants an oval shape would prefer a non-surgical option. The BOTOX treatments can reduce the size of the masseter muscles and without altering the bone structure, the muscle thickness will noticeably change and refine the angle of the patients jaw, creating a gently curved cheek and jaw.
There are several additional benefits of using BOTOX injections for jaw contouring, including:
- A non-invasive procedure
- The BOTOX treatment is done quickly, right in your doctor’s office
- There is virtually no recovery time and you can resume your daily activities immediately.
How Long Will My Treatment Session Last?
The length of your treatment will depend on your specific case, but typically the actual injection process does not take more than 10 minutes. This is why the BOTOX treatment is nicknamed the “lunchtime” cosmetic procedure. Most patients do not require any downtime and can resume their daily activities immediately after BOTOX treatment. Patients will see a noticeable improvement in the treated lines and areas within several days after the procedure, and the appearance of wrinkles and lines should continue to improve up to a month after. The results typically last up to four months.
