What Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Help With?
BOTOX® Cosmetic injections are frequently used to minimize and diminish wrinkles and lines in the following areas:
- Frown lines between the eyebrows
- Neck wrinkles and bands
- Crow’s feet around the eyes
- Lines on the upper lip
- Downturned corners of the mouth
- Horizontal forehead creases
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles, so that the injected muscle temporarily cannot contract…that makes the wrinkles relax and soften.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is most often used on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye), and frown lines. Wrinkles caused by sun damage and gravity will not respond to Botox. It can also be used for lip lines and for the chin and corner of the mouth and neck.
How Is a BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure Done?
Getting BOTOX® Cosmetic takes only a few minutes and the areas can be numbed with topical anesthesia beforehand if you choose.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to seven days to take full effect and lasts for 3-6months depending on the patient*.
It is best to avoid alcohol and aspirin and anti-inflammatory medications two weeks before treatment to reduce bruising.
How Long Does a BOTOX® Cosmetic Injection Last?
The effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic will last four to six months*. As muscle action gradually returns, the lines and wrinkles begin to reappear and need to be treated again. The lines and wrinkles often appear less severe with time because the muscles are being trained to relax.
What Are the Side Effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Temporary bruising is the most common side effect of BOTOX® Cosmetic. Headaches, which end in 24 to 48 hours, can happen, but this is rare. A small percentage of patients may develop eyelid drooping. This usually ends within three weeks. Drooping usually happens when the BOTOX® Cosmetic moves around, so don’t rub the treated area for 12 hours after injection or lie down for one hour after the procedure.
Who Should Not Receive BOTOX® Cosmetic?
Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a neurological disease should not use BOTOX® Cosmetic. Since BOTOX® Cosmetic doesn’t work for all wrinkles, you should consult with a doctor first.
Will My Insurance Pay for BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is not generally covered by insurance when used for cosmetic purposes. Check with your health insurance company for coverage details. All About You Medical Spa offers Care Credit to eligible patients.
