Successful before and after photos of Botox treated patients at the Facial and Skin Surgery Center, Plano TX.How does BOTOX Cosmetic work?

Those moderate to severe frown lines between your brows form over time as the result of muscle activity. BOTOX Cosmetic is injected directly into the muscles between your brows. It works by blocking the transmission of nerve impulses to the injected muscles; this reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those persistent lines to form. "Although Botox Cosmetic has been FDA-Approved only for the treatment of glabellar frown-lines, there has been vast experience injecting Botox Cosmetic for the treatment of forehead lines, periorbital lines, perioral lines, and other lower face applications.

When will I see results from a BOTOX Cosmetic treatment?

Within days, you may see a marked improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between your brows. Lines continue to improve for up to a month, and results can last for up to 4 months. In clinical trials, nearly 90% of men and women rated the improvement in their appearance as moderate to better 1 month after treatment. Results may vary.

How long does BOTOX Cosmetic last?

Although the results are visible, a treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you "had work done." The muscle activity that causes frown lines between the brows is simply reduced, so you can still frown or look surprised without the wrinkles and creases between your brows.
