  • Botox® Questions & Answers

    The prescription medication known as BOTOX® Cosmetic is an injectable solution used to temporarily reduce the appearance of lines that have formed between the eyebrows from frowning and crow's feet, three injections are administered into muscles that are on the sides of each eye - totaling six injections. These injections will temporarily reduce your muscle activity in the treated areas.
    Good BOTOX® Cosmetic injection candidates are healthy adults who do not have a history of neuromuscular disease or other issues near the targeted areas. Let your doctor know what allergies as you may have a negative reaction to some of the ingredients in the BOTOX® Cosmetic injection.

    While reaction times do vary, typically you may notice results between 24 and 48 hours after the injections.
