BOTOX : Frequently Asked Questions
What is BOTOX?
BOTOX Cosmetics is an injectable treatment that drives from purified protein. It is a simple, non surgical treatment that can temporarily reduce moderate to severe frown lines on the face. During treatment, very low doses of BOTOX are administered by a few tiny injections directly into the muscle that cause those stubborn lines. It blocks the nerve impulses from reaching that area, and as a result, the muscle relaxes.
When will I see results from a BOTOX treatment and how long does it last?
The treatment is usually done in about 15 minutes, and no recovery time is needed. Within days, you should see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe facial frown lines. Lines continue to improve for up to two weeks and results can last for up to 3-4 months. If three treatments are done consequently, subsequent treatments should extend beyond three months. Those that follow this routine should find their BOTOX treatments last for six months. Only needing to be done two times per year!
Is BOTOX Cosmetics Safe?
BOTOX Cosmetics has been used for the past twenty years, but has been licensed in Canada since 1990. It has been used to treat many diseases. BOTOX Cosmetics is an approved prescription drug and is approved by the FDA and the Health Protection Branch in Canada.
Is treatment with BOTOX painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Because the needles are very fine, most patients compare the sensation to a bug bite. No sedation or local anesthetic is required. Normal activity can be resumed immediately afterwards.
Will my facial expressions continue to look natural?
Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX Cosmetics will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you "had work done" or unnatural. The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows make you look angrier and more stressed than what you are. BOTOX Cosmetic simply reduces this appearance, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
