How BOTOX® Cosmetic Works

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a doctor administered non-surgical facial procedure. In fact, it is the world’s number one cosmetic procedure. It involves placement of Botox, a purified protein, into selected muscles to improve facial lines and wrinkles. The toxin paralyzes the muscles beneath the injection site for a period of three to four months. In the days following the injection, the muscle weakens causing the skin to relax. The wrinkle then becomes less noticeable and in some cases can even disappear.

Anesthesia is not required for the injections and there is little discomfort. Side effects may include minor and temporary redness at the injection site. There is also little downtime, so you may return to your schedule after you leave our office. We recommend you avoid exercise for a few hours after your BOTOX® Cosmetic injections.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is useful for the treatment of:

  • Forehead creases
  • Frown lines between your eyes
  • Crow's feet around your eyes
  • Smile lines
  • Neck bands

Botox® is the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure performed. For example: In the year 2003 there were 2,272,080 botox® injections performed.

Botox® is proven to be safe and effective. Over the past 20 years, Botulinum Toxin Type A has been evaluated in more than 200 studies. There are no documented systemic complications associated with Botox® injections. Botox® has been widely used for more than 11 years with over 1 million people. You should only receive BOTOX® Cosmetic injections from a certified professional like those at Susskind & Almallah Eye Associates.
