A Botox® Cosmetic treatment is a simple, non-surgical
procedure that smoothes the deep, persistent lines between
your brows that developed over time. One ten-minute
treatment - a few tiny injections - relaxes the muscles
that cause those lines to form and keeps them relaxed
for up to four months. Botox® Cosmetic has been
widely tested. Now, it is approved by the FDA.
The results are dramatic and apparent within days.
In clinical trials, nearly 90% of the men and women
surveyed rated the improvement in their brow lines as
moderate to better. For many, Botox® Cosmetic virtually
"erases" these lines.
Unlike surgery, Botox® Cosmetic is fast, simple
and minimally invasive, with no downtime or recovery.
Most people return directly to work or normal activity
following treatment. Within days, they report looking
more natural and relaxed. With Botox® Cosmetic,
other people will know you've done something, but they
just won't know what.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM BOTOX® COSMETIC
Your doctor will determine exactly where to administer
several tiny injections to achieve the best results.
No anesthesia is required, although he or she may choose
to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream
prior to injecting. The entire procedure takes approximately
ten minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief - most
patients compare the sensation to bug bite. It is unlikely
you will develop significant side effects, although
some people develop slight temporary bruising at the
injection site, which can easily be covered by makeup.
You may resume normal activity immediately.
Within days, you'll see a marked improvement which
may continue to improve for as long as a week and should
last up to four months.
Botox® Cosmetic relaxes the overactive muscles
whose repeated contractions cause the lines between
your brows to form. So you can frown, smile or look
surprised - without the furrows, creases and wrinkles.

injections directly into the overactive muscles. The
effects of Botox® Cosmetic are usually confined
to the injected region; it does not travel throughout

cream or ice to minimize this. Once the injection is
complete, there is usually no discomfort.
