    Is BOTOX ® Cosmetic right for me?
    People ages 18 to 65 choose to talk to their doctors about being treated with BOTOX ®  Cosmetic for a variety of reasons.  They may be concerned that their frown lines between the brows make them look tired, stressed, or unapproachable.  You may have your own reasons, so talk to your healthcare provider today to find out if BOTOX ®  Cosmetic is right for you.

    What causes frown lines?
    The 11’s – those vertical lines that appear between your brows – actually result from powerful muscle contractions.  When you concentrate or frown, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold.  After years of frequent contraction, those creases can linger even after the muscles have relaxed.

    How does BOTOX ® Cosmetic work?
    Very low doses of BOTOX ®  Cosmetic are administered via a few tiny injections directly into the muscles responsible for the frown lines between the brows.  By blocking the release of the chemical that causes these muscles to contract, BOTOX ®  Cosmetic enables them to relax, so the skin appears smooth.

    How quickly will I see a difference?
    Within 1 to 2 days, you may notice a softening in the appearance of your frown lines.  The area between your brows may continue to improve for up to a month.

    How long can I expect my results to last?
    Visible results have been shown to last up to 4 months.  Your own results may vary – be sure to talk to your healthcare provider about what you can expect and when to schedule your next appointment.
