“In Fact, BOTOX Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved treatment for the temporary reduction of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in patients 18 to 65 years of age."
Proven. Simple. Effective.
Ten minutes – a few tiny injections – and within days there’s a noticeable improvement. There’s no recovery or downtime. You can even receive BOTOX Cosmetic treatment on your lunch break. And results last up to four months. Individual results may vary.
What causes frown lines between the brows? How does BOTOX Cosmetic help?
The lines that appear between your brows actually result from muscle movement and the passage of time.
Two muscles are largely responsible for frown lines between the brows. When those muscles contract, they draw the brows together. As skin becomes less elastic over time, repeated frowning can result in those moderate to severe lines between your brows.
Botox Cosmetic works by blocking nerve impulses, which reduces the movement of those muscles. With less movement, the skin surface gradually smoothes out, and the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows begin to fade.
Just what is BOTOX Cosmetic? is it FDA approved?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a purified protein. It is a non-surgical, physician-administered treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines between the brows in patients 18 to 65 years of age. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles that cause those stubborn lines between the brows.
BOTOX Cosmetic is the only treatment of its type approved by the FDA for this use. The treatment is minimally invasive and non-surgical. It requires no recovery time and causes little discomfort.
What is the treatment like? Where can I have it done?
BOTOX Cosmetic is a quick and minimally invasive treatment. Dr. Fisher makes a few tiny injections into the muscles that cause moderate to severe frown lines between your brows.
No anesthesia is required, although you may choose to have the area numbed with a cold pack. The entire procedure takes approximately ten minutes. Discomfort is minimal and brief – most patients compare the sensation to a pin prick. You may resume normal activity immedately.
How soon will I see a difference? What kind of results can I expect?
You can expect to see results within days after your treatment. The appearance of the area between your brows may continue to improve for up to a week. By day 30 in a patient clinical study, 89% of patients judged the severity of their frown lines between their brows as moderate or better. Visible results can last up to four months. After that, you may be ready to return for a follow-up treatment.
Patients with neurological disorders such as ALS, Myasthenia Gravis, or Lambert-Eaton syndrome may be at risk of serious side effects. The most common side effects include headache, respiratory infection, flu syndrome, temporary eyelid droop, and nausea.
Other side effects include pain and redness where the Medcine is injected, pain the face, and muscle weakness. These effects generally occur within the first week and usually go away on their own. Your own results may vary – be sure to talk to Dr. Fisher about what you can expect.
How soon will I need a second treatment? What happens if I decide not to continue?
The effect of each treatment can last up to four months – be sure to schedule your follow-up treatments in advance. If you decide not to continue with BOTOX Cosmetic, the area between your brows will eventually go back to its pretreatment appearance.
How does BOTOX Cosmetic compare to other options?
Compared to other aesthetic treatment options, BOTOX Cosmetic is relatively inexpensive. According to a survey by The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, it’s one of the least costly facial aesthetic procedures. And when you consider the difference it can make in the appearance of the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows, you may find BOTOX Cosmetic to be a great way to invest in yourself.
BOTOX Cosmetic treats the cause of these frown lines between the brows by reducing the muscle contractions that cause the lines to form over time. BOTOX Cosmetic is the only treatment of its type approved by the FDA for the temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.
