What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling treatment of its kind:
- It’s the first and only FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines look better in adults.
- A quick 10-minute treatment with minimal downtime
- You may begin to notice results within 3 to 5 days for moderate to severe frown lines
- It delivers predictable, subtle results so you look like you, only with less noticeable facial lines
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines – the repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, smiling and raising the eyebrows over the years. Dr. Ellen will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You will begin to notice a visible smoothing of the frown lines between your brows, your crow’s feet and your forehead lines.
Will my face look overdone or unnatural?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You can trust Dr. Ellen to deliver subtle results since you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. No one should be able to tell you’ve had anything done.
What should I expect? Does treatment hurt?
Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Dr. Ellen may apply an ice pack to numb the treatment area.
How much time does treatment take?
The injection process takes a quick 10 minutes. Dr. Ellen will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.
How many injections will I receive?
