Botox® and Dysport
Contraction of the muscles of the forehead and eyes results in the formation of wrinkles. Botox® and Dysport work by causing relaxation in the muscles of the forehead and the eyes, which is where worry lines start. Each treatment takes about 10 minutes and results last up to six months. There is absolutely no downtime and very minimal discomfort.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the first and only FDA-approved product to temporarily improve both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines around the sides of the eyes in adults.
How does BOTOX® Cosmetic 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. Your doctor will inject these muscles with BOTOX® Cosmetic to temporarily reduce muscle activity. You’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines.
How is BOTOX® Cosmetic (onabotulinumtoxinA) administered?
To temporarily improve 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.
For temporary improvement of moderate to severe frown lines, BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected into 2 muscles—the corrugator and procerus muscles.
Treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic takes approximately 10 minutes and requires minimal downtime or recovery—it’s often called a lunchtime procedure.
Think 2 treatments, 1 visit. Ask your doctor aboutreceiving BOTOX® Cosmetic for moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet at the same time.
Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look like I’ve had work done?
When BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by an experienced injector, you should not lose the ability to show expressions. BOTOX® Cosmetic is a techniquesensitive procedure that should only be performed by a licensed and trained aesthetic provider who has expertise in facial anatomy.
Talk to your doctor about your expectations and the results you want to achieve with treatment.
