Procedure Information

How does it work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet—the repeated muscle contractions from frowning and squinting over the years. BOTOX Cosmetic temporarily reduces this muscle activity. You’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines after five to seven days post-injection.

For temporary improvement of moderate to severe crow’s feet, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the muscle surrounding the sides of your eyes called the orbicularis oculi muscles.

For temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines, your doctor will inject BOTOX® Cosmetic into the corrugator and procerus muscles.

Will I look overdone?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a technique-sensitive treatment. You should not lose the ability to show expression when you are treated by someone who is licensed, trained, and a medical expert in facial anatomy. It is important to talk to your provider about the results you want from treatment.

Does the treatment hurt?

Some patients report that being injected with BOTOX® Cosmetic feels like a pinch. Your provider may use ice to numb the treatment area. If you are concerned about discomfort, your provider may apply a topical numbing cream before administering your treatment.

How long does treatment take?

The treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery—it’s often called a lunchtime procedure.

What were common side effects seen in clinical studies?

According to study X, three percent of patients experienced eyelid drooping around the frown lines areas and approximately one percent of patients experienced eyelid swelling in the crow’s feet region. Other possible side effects include but are not limited to: discomfort or pain at the injection site, headaches, and eye problems (double vision, blurred vision, drooping eyelids, and swelling of your eyelids). These are only some of the possible side effects from the use of BOTOX® Cosmetic.

However, with BOTOX® Cosmetic, you can get noticeable results and still look like yourself.
