Botox Cosmetic

How safe is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic has been used safely and successfully for medical purposes since 1989 and for wrinkle therapy since 2002. In the amounts used for wrinkle therapy, the only possible side effects are temporary and localized to the area of injection.

What side effects can be expected?

As with any injection, there can be temporary swelling, redness, bruising, headache or local discomfort. Rarely, clients have been reported to develop a slight lowering of the eyelid or slight lowering of the forehead. This is temporary and resolves in a few weeks. Some clients may have an uneven or incomplete response to the treatment. BOTOX® Cosmetic does not reduce the action of the muscles of facial expression distant from the site of treatment. Clients with neuromuscular disorder should inform their doctor before therapy. BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment should not be administered to women who are pregnant or nursing.

Where Can BOTOX® Cosmetic Be Injected?

The most common areas of use of BOTOX® Cosmetic are the frown lines between the eyebrows, horizontal forehead lines, and crow’s feet. On occasion, some other areas may be treated as well.

When Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Start to Work and How Long Does It Last?

The results of your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment will begin to appear in three to four days. The effect will last three to four months, after which the treated muscles will gradually regain their action. When the lines begin to reappear, a simple repeat treatment is all that is necessary to maintain the desired results.
