Results are visible within 3 – 8 days after treatment. Full onset takes 14 days. Treatment is simple and minimally invasive.

Common Questions & Answers About BOTOX® Cosmetic
Where is BOTOX® Cosmetic Used?
BOTOX® Cosmetic primarily addresses lines in the skin known as “dynamic wrinkles,” which include crow’s feet around the eyes and wrinkles visible while smiling, laughing or raising the eyebrows. These lines are normally less noticeable when your face is relaxed. BOTOX® Cosmetic may also be used for bands in the neck.
Am I a good candidate?
Candidates generally range from the ages of 25 to 65, as wrinkles in people over 65 are considered “static” and do not disappear when the skin relaxes. There are other procedures which target static wrinkles. Each patient is unique, however, and private consultations are recommended to determine the best and most effective treatment plan.
How is BOTOX® Cosmetic Administered at Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center?
A required amount of BOTOX® Cosmetic is injected with a fine needle into the targeted areas. The amount of liquid which enters the skin is very small and patients experience only minimal discomfort in the form of a slight pinch. No anesthetic is necessary and you can continue with your everyday activities immediately following the procedure.
Are the injections painful?
The injection needle is very small, which normally avoids any discomfort. The pinching sensation experienced lasts only a short time, and you will return to your usual activities without any painful aftereffects.
When will I notice the difference, and how long will it last?
Patients usually see the full effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments 3 to 14 days following the procedure, although this may be hastened by contracting the facial muscles. Results normally last for three to six months, and repeat treatments result in longer-lasting effects.
What happens as treatment begins to wear off?
After three to six months, the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic begin to wear off and wrinkles reappear, though often not as deep or visible as they were prior to treatment. In order to sustain smooth skin and a youthful look, three to four injections are usually required. By returning for repeat treatments as the treatment wears off, fewer injections are required to maintain young-looking skin.
Is there any downtime?
No. Following treatment, patients usually return to their jobs and normal activities immediately. It is recommended, however, that you avoid exercise, heavy lifting and massaging the injected area for one day.
How much does BOTOX® Cosmetic cost?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is sold by the area treated.
