Often combined with popular treatment options like microneedling, his procedure involves minimal discomfort and the results are long-lasting. If you want a younger appearance, but are not ready for a surgical procedure like a facelift, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be the answer.

How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?

Facial lines and wrinkles are partially caused by repetitive motion. When you routinely move your face in the same way, the surrounding skin will fold and eventually develop creases. BOTOX® Cosmetic contains small amounts of botulinum toxin. This neurotoxin blocks the nerve impulses that cause muscle movement. Reduced muscle activity naturally results in softened lines and wrinkles. BOTOX® Cosmetic is especially helpful in treating:

  • Frown lines
  • Crow’s feet or creases at the edges of the eyes
  • Horizontal forehead wrinkles

What to Expect During Treatment

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment typically takes about 15 minutes. Your nurse will carefully determine the right placement for your injections to ensure natural results and to preserve your facial expressions. Typically, he or she will administer three to five injections. The exact number will depend on the size of treatment area. You may feel a tiny pinch, but the procedure typically involves minimal discomfort.

BOTOX® Cosmetic requires little to no downtime. You may experience some minimal sensitivity and bruising, but this will typically go away after several days. It can take a few days to see the results of your treatment. After the BOTOX® Cosmetic takes effect, you should notice that your facial wrinkles are significantly reduced, and you have an overall younger, more alert appearance. BOTOX® Cosmetic results can last between three and six months. With the approval of James E. Murphy, M.D. or your aesthetic nurse, it is safe to undergo routine touch-up treatments.

BOTOX® Medical

If you and your doctor decide it is right for you, you will receive a series of injections. The injection sites will vary, depending on your symptoms and the severity of your headaches. The results typically last about 12 weeks, after which you can receive additional injections.

Risks and Side Effects

Both BOTOX® Cosmetic and BOTOX® Medical are safe procedures with very few side effects. You may experience some slight discomfort, sensitivity, or stiffness. However, these side effects are rare, and they usually go away within a few days. There are no long-term risks associated with BOTOX® injections.

Like some patients, you may be worried that your facial movements will be restricted after your BOTOX® Cosmetic injections. Although this is a possible side effect, when the treatment is administered by our highly experienced nurse, it is extremely rare.
