BOTOX® Cosmetic is a popular wrinkle treatment FDA-approved to address signs of aging on specific areas on your face. Made of a specialized botulinum toxin, BOTOX® Cosmetic works by temporarily freezing certain facial muscles that cause fine lines and wrinkles. This treats current facial creases while preventing new ones from forming. Find out if BOTOX® Cosmetic is the right option to help you get a younger, more radiant-looking face.
Target Signs of Facial Aging With BOTOX® Cosmetic
BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved to temporarily treat moderate to severe:
- Frown lines
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
As a non-surgical alternative to a facelift, eyelid lift and forehead lift, BOTOX® Cosmetic is safe for nearly everyone. However, you must be at least 18 years of age to receive the injectable, and it’s not recommended for women who are pregnant or nursing.
During your initial consultation, our aesthetic nurse injectors will ask you a series of questions to determine if BOTOX® Cosmetic is right for you. This will include questions about your medical history, any medical conditions you may have, and any medications or supplements you currently take. To help you get the results you want, they will also ask you about your expected outcomes and treatment goals.
BOTOX® Cosmetic vs. Dermal Fillers
BOTOX® Cosmetic only treats fine lines and wrinkles caused by repetitive movements — often referred to as expression lines — including frowning, smiling and squinting. It is not an effective solution for facial sagging or a loss of facial fat.
If you have one or more of the following signs of facial aging, dermal fillers are likely a better option for you:
- Marionette lines, smile lines or parentheses
- Vertical lip lines
- Creased or dimpled chin
- Sunken cheeks or temples
- Dark circles beneath your eyes
- Thinning lips
Our aesthetic nurse injectors can help you decide whether BOTOX® Cosmetic or another injectable is better suited to your needs.
