Botox®

BOTOX Cosmetic Logo

Botox® Cosmetic is one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments used to reduce facial lines and wrinkles. 

Botox® Cosmetic is given by an injection to temporarily relax muscles in the face, providing a more youthful, revitalized appearance. This quick and virtually painless injection can be used to tastefully relax and rejuvenate the face without leaving it expressionless.

BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment takes approximately 10 minutes and requires very little downtime.

What can be treated?

  • Crow’s feet – smile lines
  • Frown lines, or “elevens” (11’s) – vertical forehead lines
  • Horizontal forehead lines
  • Masseter muscles – jaw clenching
  • Brow asymmetry
  • Bunny lines
  • Chin dimpling

Botox® Cosmetic works by weakening the muscles it is injected into. By blocking the release of chemicals that cause muscle contraction, it relaxes the muscle treated. Decreasing the muscle contraction results in less wrinkles in the overlying skin.

Results are visible approximately one week after treatment and generally last for three to six months, depending on the individual.

There are several different kinds of botulinum toxin neuromodulators. In the hands of experienced injectors, the results achieved with each type are the same. Dysport is often priced lower than Botox® because it essentially has a lower concentration, requiring a higher dose to get the same results as Botox®. Xeomin® is more closely dosed to Botox® and the price is very similar.

Botox® is a prescription and can be administered by many medical professionals who are licensed to prescribe mediations. Having a licensed medical doctor with ample experience with injectable medications reduces the risk of complications. At The Oculoplastics Center, only Dr. Sweeney or Dr. McDevitt perform these injections, ensuring that all patients receive expert-level care. Nobody knows your face like an oculoplastic surgeon – trust your face to the experts.
