Botox for Women
Botox Cosmetic (OnabotulinumtoxinA) is the only FDA-approved treatment to temporarily improve both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet in adults. You can get treated in both areas at the same time.
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 so you’ll begin to notice a visible smoothing of these lines in 7-10 days and proven to last up to 3 months.
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. It’s often called a lunchtime procedure.
