Previously, Botulinum A Toxin (Botox) has been used for the treatment of eyelid spasm, eye spasm, neck muscle spasm and facial muscle imbalances for many years. After injection, Botox works to temporarily (months) paralyze the affected muscle, and thereby releases the spasm or softens the facial imbalance.

The same principles that make BOTOX® Cosmetic effective as a medical treatment make it effective as a cosmetic treatment, and Injecting small amounts of BOTOX® Cosmetic into facial muscles results in localized paralysis and a more relaxed facial expression.

Dr. Maas of The Appearance Care Center has been a pioneer in the use of BOTOX® Cosmetic for cosmetic applications to achieve maximum results, in addition to avoiding the “frozen,” “surprised,” or “expressionless” look that concerns many prospective patients.

FAQ

What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?

BOTOX® Cosmetic is a treatment that temporarily improves the appearance of frown lines between the brows and crow’s feet lines.

How does BOTOX® Cosmetic work?

BOTOX® Cosmetic targets the muscle contractions from frowning and squinting, one cause of crow’s feet and frown lines. Once injected, muscle activity will be reduced temporarily, allowing the smoothing of frown and crow’s feet lines.

Do BOTOX® Cosmetic injections hurt?

The application of BOTOX® Cosmetic can be best described as a slight pinch. The minor discomfort associated with BOTOX® Cosmetic can be minimized with ice or a topical number cream prior to treatment.

How many injections will I receive?

For crow’s feet: 3 areas of the orbicularis oculi will be injected for each eye.

For frown lines: 5 injections will be made into the muscles in your forehead. 4 will be made in the corrugator muscles, the other in the procerus muscle.

What results can I expect with BOTOX® Cosmetic?

Results are typically noticeable for moderate to severe frown lines in a day or two. Results last up to 4 months.

How much downtime is there with BOTOX® Cosmetic?

There is minimal downtime with BOTOX® Cosmetic, and you can continue on with your day after treatment.

Will BOTOX® Cosmetic make me look like I’ve had work done?

The application of BOTOX® Cosmetic is technique-sensitive, so finding a licensed & trained medical expert in facial anatomy will help you achieve the greatest results. When treated by a talented and experienced professional, you should maintain the ability to show expression without looking unnatural.
