BOTOX® Cosmetic, a purified protein, is injected into small muscles in the face or neck, temporarily blocking the nerve endings. This cosmetic treatment temporarily reduces wrinkles, stress and tension that are reflected in the face. A few local pricks, taking just minutes, can complete the treatment, softening the lines caused by a frown or a squint. The injections can last for up to three to four months. Repeat treatment can thin or flatten the muscles and keep tension from re-appearing. Improvement is nearly immediate, as you experience a tension-free “afterglow”.
The beauty of a BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment is that it’s a simple, 10-minute, non-surgical process. A few tiny injections, and within days there can be a noticeable improvement in the moderate to severe frown lines between the brows that can last up to 3-4 months. Results may vary. And there’s no recovery time. You can even do it on your lunch break.

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.
Results from treatment with BOTOX® Cosmetic can last for up to 3 to 4 months. If you discontinue treatment, the frown lines between your brows gradually will look like they did before treatment.
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injecting, Dr. Johnson may choose to numb the area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream. The entire procedure takes approximately 10 minutes. People are in and out of our office without any downtime following BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment.
