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 brows and give patients a “more relaxed” look that lasts for several months.
BOTOX® Cosmetic is administered by Dr. Green as a simple, painless and nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows.
Dr. Green most often will use Botox on forehead lines, crow’s feet (lines around the eye) and frown lines between the brows.
Receiving a Botox treatment takes only a few minutes and usually, no anesthesia is required. Botox is injected with a fine needle into specific muscles with only minor discomfort. It generally takes three to fourteen days to take full effect and it is best to avoid alcohol at least one week prior to treatment to decrease the risk of bruising.
Temporary bruising is the most common side effect of Botox, which can resolve in 24-48 hours.
