About BOTOX® Cosmetic

BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most popular injectable treatment used to reduce wrinkles—for good reason.
Some facts to know are:

  • 1.8 million wrinkle-relaxing treatments like BOTOX® Cosmetic were performed last year according
    to the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery
  • The active ingredient in BOTOX® Cosmetic is the most studied product of its kind in history
  • You shouldn’t look “fake” or lose the ability to make expressions when BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered
    by a skilled healthcare provider like Dr. Lee
  • BOTOX® Cosmetic can treat wrinkles in the following facial areas:
    • Between the brows (frown lines)
    • Around the eyes (crow’s feet)
    • Across the forehead

What to expect with BOTOX® Cosmetic

Years of squinting and frowning can cause what experts call “dynamic wrinkles.” BOTOX® Cosmetic works by targeting the muscles that form these lines. This makes the wrinkles look softer and smoother. You should also know:

  • A very fine needle is used to administer treatment; most people say it feels like a pin prick or acupuncture needles
  • You can request a numbing cream or ice packs if you worry about discomfort
  • Treatment is fast—from 5 minutes to 15 minutes depending on how many facial areas we treat
  • There is NO downtime; you can return to your normal daily activities afterward
  • You should not rub the treated areas for the first 24 hours
  • Results start to appear within the first week and may last up to 3 to 4 months
