What is BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic is extracted from sources existing in nature and is the only medically-approved treatment to temporarily improve unwanted facial wrinkles in adults. After years of extensive research, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment became available to the US in 2002 and has been approved and trusted by countless doctors and millions of consumers.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is derived from the natural bacterium Clostridium botulinum. The amount and exact formulation of purified botulinum toxin protein in BOTOX® Cosmetic varies depending on the product. That being said, there are no generic forms of the treatment because no singular BOTOX® Cosmetic product can replace another.
What BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment is Like
Rather than just treating the surface of your face, BOTOX® Cosmetic injections target the muscle activity beneath the skin’s surface. For the crow’s feet area, the BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment will be injected three times into each of your orbicularis oculi muscles which frame the outside of your eyes.
For between the eyebrows, your BOTOX® Cosmetic provider will inject the treatment once into the procerus muscle and four times into the corrugator muscle – these are both muscles in your forehead.
BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment reduces the muscle activity in the targeted area for up to four months and results can be seen in as little as 24 hours. The medical aesthetic expert administering your treatment will perform an analysis on your face and discuss your personal goals to determine the best areas on your face to improve upon using BOTOX® Cosmetic. The injection process takes about ten minutes and most patients report feeling nothing more than a pinch. Often referred to as a “lunchtime procedure”, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment allows you to instantly return to your everyday routine.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a medical aesthetic treatment that has been safely used and trusted in America for almost fifteen years. Treatment is quick, relatively painless, and users should not lose any ability to show facial expression. Everyone deserves to feel comfortable in their own skin and BOTOX® Cosmetic is the number one selling product to temporarily provide softer, younger looking facial skin between the brows and around the eyes.
