What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable treatment made up of botulinum toxin type A, which works to temporarily smooth lines and wrinkles in the face known as dynamic wrinkles. These wrinkles are the lines that form over time due to repeated facial movements, such as squinting and frowning.

BOTOX® Cosmetic can be used to treat the following areas:

  • Forehead lines.
  • Crow’s feet.
  • Sagging eyebrows.
  • 11 lines (frown lines).
  • Bunny lines.
  • Neck bands.

BOTOX® Cosmetic Candidates

Both men and women who are 18 years and older who wish to smooth the appearance of dynamic lines can benefit from BOTOX® Cosmetic. However, you may not be a candidate for BOTOX® Cosmetic if you are pregnant or nursing, are allergic to cow’s milk protein, or have a history of keloid scarring. A consultation appointment at our Grand Rapids, MI office is the best way to determine if this treatment is a good match for you.

The BOTOX® Cosmetic Treatment

During your BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment, we will offer a topical numbing cream to make sure that you are comfortable during injection. However, many people do not require this step since the treatment is tolerable. Then, a small syringe will be used to skillfully inject the BOTOX® Cosmetic into the specified areas for correction. Treatment can take 10-20 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area and the number of injections required.

What to Expect Following BOTOX® Cosmetic

After your BOTOX® Cosmetic injections, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site. For the best possible results, we recommend avoiding alcohol consumption, extensive exercise, and sun exposure for 24 hours. Results can last for 3-6 months before another treatment is needed.
