BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to improve the look of moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows (glabellar lines) in people 18 to 65 years of age. Average effectiveness of BOTOX® is about 3-4 months.
What is BOTOX® Cosmetic?
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a purified protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium, which reduces the activity of the muscles that cause those frown lines between the brows to form over time.
How long does it take?
One 10-minute treatment—a few tiny injections—and within days there’s a noticeable improvement in moderate to severe frown lines between the brows, which can last up to 4 months.
Does it hurt?
Almost all patients report that there is minimal discomfort. Almost no patients report that the pain is severe. Most patients report that the specially designed syringes make it relatively painless.
How do I know the BOTOX® I am being treated with is not diluted?
BOTOX® must always be diluted in order to achieve its inject-able form. BOTOX® should be reconstituted only with non preserved normal saline. Other diluents, including lidocaine, should not be used for reconstitution. Borispa always uses the Allergan recommended dilution
methods for maximum strength an d effectiveness.
