BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate-to-severe frown lines between the brows in people 18 to 65 years of age for a short period of time (temporary).
BOTOX Cosmetic is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form between the brows.
Every patient of mine is encouraged to ask questions and be as educated as possible regarding our treatments. Therefore, it is important to me to take the time before and after all appointments to ensure that we answered any questions that you may have and review the expectations of the procedures. The initial consultation is often 30-45 minutes, depending on the patient, and involves a detailed discussion of your cosmetic concerns and our treatment options. We will also review your medical history, including allergies, medications and any condition that wouldn’t make you a good candidate for BOTOX. This visit is intended to be a comprehensive and therefore allows for much quicker visits in the future. However, anytime a patient has additional questions, the visit is always complimentary.
