The beauty of a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is that it’s a simple, 10-minute, non-surgical process. A few tiny injections, and within days there can be a noticeable improvement in the frown lines between the brows.
The improvement can last up to 4 months. (Results may vary.)
And there’s no recovery time! You can even do it on your lunch break.
1) Your doctor will administer several tiny injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic directly into the muscles that cause those moderate to severe frown lines between the brows.
2) Your doctor will determine where to administer the injections by examining your ability to move certain muscles in your brow area. The location, size, and use of the muscles that create a furrowed brow vary markedly among individuals.
3) No anesthesia is required, although your doctor may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream prior to injecting. Discomfort is usually minimal and brief.
4) You can expect to be in and out of the physician’s office without downtime. You may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows within days. Improvement may continue for as long as a month, and could last up to 4 months.
BOTOX® is also approved for the treatment of blepharospasms (blinking spasms). Blepharospasm is a disorder of the muscles that control eyelid movement. Spasms of the eyelid lead to frequent blinking and can affect both eyelids, making it difficult to open them. In severe cases, this debilitating condition can lead to what is known as “functional blindness,” an inability to open the eyelids for any significant period of time.
Approximately 75% of patients with blepharospasm are female and the average age at onset is 56 years old. Although the exact cause of the disorder is unknown, experts believe it may be caused by an inappropriate signal in part of the brain.
Doctors diagnose blepharospasm based on key signs and symptoms including irritation and discomfort of the eyelids and an increase in blinking, which can be exacerbated by bright or flickering lights, dusty or smoky air and high-speed travel by train or car. Without proper medical treatment, most patients with blepharospasm do not recover. When injected in the affected facial and eye muscles, BOTOX® relieves muscle spasms and can be re-injected every three months to continue to treat the disorder.
