What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only approved treatment to temporarily improve the appearance of both moderate to severe frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines in adults.
A Well-Studied Treatment
BOTOX® Cosmetic has been well studied. In fact, it is one of the most extensively studied medical aesthetic treatments on earth. It is approved for cosmetic use in more than 78 countries. Aesthetic providers trust BOTOX® Cosmetic because of the proven results. The safety and efficacy of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been evaluated in both Allergan sponsored clinical trials as well as in over 400 peer-reviewed articles in scientific and medical journals.
Derived from Sources Found in Nature
BOTOX® Cosmetic contains tiny amounts of a highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. Formulations, potency, and approved doses vary among botulinum toxin products, which means that one product cannot take the place of another. Those are a few reasons why there is no such thing as a “generic” form of BOTOX® Cosmetic.
A Treatment Experienced by Millions
Since 2002, more than 10 million vials of BOTOX® Cosmetic have been sold in the United States, and millions of people have already made BOTOX® Cosmetic a part of what they do for themselves. Today, BOTOX® Cosmetic is the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.*

How Does BOTOX Cosmetic Work?
Wrinkles occur as a result of a combination of many factors. They can occur due to cellular changes that happen over time, a reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals in the sun and the environment.
When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. And when you squint, the muscles around your eyes contract and cause crow’s feet.
BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the skin’s surface and targets the underlying muscle activity that causes frown lines and crow’s feet.
What Should I Expect with Treatment?
Real, Noticeable Results! You will begin to notice a difference within 24 to 48 hours for moderate to severe frown lines, with results lasting up to 4 months or more!
The actual injection process takes about 10 minutes! Your provider will discuss your treatment goals and perform a facial analysis to determine the appropriate treatment areas for you.
