BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved medication that effectively treats wrinkles and lines, contributing to smoother skin by preventing these signs of aging from forming. It’s a wrinkle relaxer that temporarily reduces muscle contraction and movement, hence minimizing wrinkles and lines associated with these movements. BOTOX® Cosmetic can also enhance your appearance by making you look slimmer and improving your smile through targeted muscle relaxation. The dosage for each individual is tailored to their specific needs and aesthetic goals.
The treatment is quick, comfortable, and requires no downtime, with visible results generally appearing two days post-treatment and lasting for three to four months.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an FDA-approved injectable medication used both for aesthetic and therapeutic purposes. It is a derivative of the bacterium Clostridium botulinum, and when injected into targeted muscles, it reduces their activity, thereby diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
BOTOX® blocks signals from nerves to muscles, preventing muscle contraction and resulting in smoother skin.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is predominantly used to treat cosmetic conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, lines between the eyebrows, and horizontal forehead lines. It is also used therapeutically to treat conditions like excessive sweating, chronic migraines, temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ), dimpled chin, and platysma (neck cords).
Side effects can include temporary bruising, headaches, or eye dryness. Less common effects are eyelid drooping, uneven eyebrows, or a crooked smile, which typically resolves over time.
Results typically appear within two days but can take up to two weeks for full effect. These results usually last three to four months.
Cost varies depending on the treatment area, required units, and provider’s fees. It’s best to consult a healthcare provider for an accurate estimate.
