BOTOX® Cosmetic is the only FDA-approved treatment for frown lines and crow’s feet in adults. Doctors around the world trust BOTOX® because of how well-studied the treatment is and how consistent the results are.
How Does BOTOX® Cosmetic Work?
BOTOX® Cosmetic prevents nerve stimulation around the treatment site so that small muscle movements are temporarily reduced. By forcing your facial muscles to calm down, BOTOX® Cosmetic treatments give the skin on top of the muscles a chance to relax. During this time, your skin can rejuvenate and regain some of its lost elasticity. With regular treatment, your skin can regain much of its strength and smoothness.
What Is the BOTOX® Cosmetic Procedure Like?
Depending on what area is being treated, your Gulf Coast Eye Institute doctor will administer a different number of injections. For crow’s feet, you will receive three injections on the outer edge of each eye. Frown lines are generally treated with five injections on different parts of your forehead. Your Gulf Coast Eye Institute cosmetic specialist will discuss your goals and determine a specific treatment plan from there.
Repeat injections are recommended every three months for about a year to allow the skin to fully rejuvenate. Even though repeat treatments are suggested, some preliminary results are often noticeable within three to five days.
